R&B Cellars is Alameda's largest family-owned winery. As part of the burgeoning East Bay urban wine scene, the winery's core mission has been to create high quality wines that deliver tremendous value to the consumer. Since 1997, winemaker Kevin Brown has taken a detail-oriented and labor-intensive approach to crafting the highest quality wines. Each of the winery's varietals, having earned 90+ point scores and numerous accolades across the country, has helped to set R&B Cellars apart from the traditional players in the marketplace. Kevin and Barbara Brown, the owners and winemakers, are jazz musicians, performing at winery events, winemaker dinners and wine tastings across the country. Their passion for jazz is evident by the beautiful musical wine labels and the fun, jazzy names. With over 30 years of experience in various areas of the industry, it is natural that the Brown family has extended their passion for making music into creating fantastic wine. Their motto: Wine That Swings! And it does. R&B Cellars originally started in 1997 as a side project to create some of California's finest Cabernet Sauvignon, producing only 230 cases that first year. The first vintage, the 1997 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, was critiaclly acclaimed, winning the Vinalies D'Argent in Paris of 2000. This year's 2005 release has already garnered two Double Gold Medals and was voted "Best of Class" and "Judges Choice" at the 2010 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition. Today, R&B Cellars has expanded to include several new wines. Seeing a need in the marketplace for high quality wines that are value-oriented, R&B Cellars is now also known for producing finely crafted, beautifully balanced wines, several of them under $15, and all of them garnering great critical acclaim, awards and accolades. In addition, the family of wines include award-winning single-vineyard and reserve wines: Zinfandel, Merlot, Petite Sirah, Cabernet Franc, and a traditional "Port" dessert wine. We now produce 12,000 cases annually. We are ten wines strong across eight varietals. – Description from jillofalltrades
