An Urban Wine Destination
Nestled deep among warehouses and factories on Berkeley’s Fourth Street, Urbano Cellars has become a destination of choice for “in-the-know” locals. There vintners Bob Rawson and Fred Dick hand craft a rich array of small-batch artisanal wines, poured in their friendly, no-frills tasting room.
Besides their regular tastings of current vintages, Urbano Cellars has hosted special events, such as a cheese-making class, movie screenings, wine and chocolate pairings, and sipping and painting as well as events to celebrate newly released wines. For special events, both the winery and tasting room are open and a diverse crowd of people arrive by bike, car or BART for an afternoon of music, wine-tasting and mingling. The wine club currently has about 200 members, plus many regulars who drop in to refill their bottles of Fourth Street table wine.
