Swan’s Market Tasting Room

Our tasting room in Swan’s Market is going great and we’re wrapping up plans to expand to a new, larger space with-in Swan’s Market in conjunction with an overall market redesign (including the addition of 4 new restaurants!). In addition to a general aesthetic upgrade, this expansion will include the adding of 7-10 new taps, “To Go” bottles (500ml refillable flip-tops), expanded hours and a carefully selected variety of bar snacks (including, hopefully, the greatest beef jerky made in the Bay Area).

New Tasting Room Hours!

Swan’s Market
Thu 6-9pm/ Fri & Sat 12-9pm – 517 9th St, Oakland

Stay tuned for a handful of special events at the Swan’s location in conjunction with Taylor’s Sausages, Cosecha, Miss Ollie’s and Rosamunde.

2007 Bottling Update

As many of you know last year was a challenging year in regards to bottling and, although I have been able to talk to many of you in person about the situation regarding bottling the 2007 Vintage, I wanted to to post a general overview of what has been going on and where we’re headed in 2012.

New Tasting Room

No. No new progress on the Linden Street tasting room but, it will come as surprise to everyone (and even me to some degree) to learn that I have just signed a lease on a second tasting room location at Swan’s Market in Old Oakland. The official opening date for this spot isn’t until I get final ABC approval (hopefully quicker and easier than the Linden project) sometime next month.

In the mean time however, stay tuned for a handful of special events at the Swan’s location in conjunction with Taylor’s Sausages and Cosecha.

Tasting Room Delayed but 2007 Bottling Begins

After being within 1 weeks of approval at the end of September for the new tasting room at Linden Street, ABC (CA Alcohol Beverage Control) decided to reverse themselves and piled on a bunch of brand new requirements they had previously said we did not need (it’s kind-of what they do best). We are now looking at a Feb 2012 opening. In the mean time we did manage to get the beer side of project approved so Linden Street Brewery does have a brand-new tasting room as of the middle of November. I highly reccommend a visit!

In the mean time, we have recently purchased a new bottling line in Napa and are moving forward with the long-awaited bottling of our 2007 vintage wines. As of now we are planning to release these as part of new tasting room opening. As soon as we get a solid open date we will be contacting all of our loyal customers. Stay tuned.

Rising from the Depths

After being stuck in the deep dark depths of old web design, our site has finally come up for air, taken a look around and got back in shape. We still have a lot to clean up but we hope you like our new look as much as we do.
