R&B Cellars of Alameda plans to celebrate some of latest awards with the community. Winemakers Kevin & Barbara will be at Alameda Vintners Club at Angela’s Bistro on Central Avenue this Sunday from 3:30-6 p.m.
According to R&B, its wines won the following awards in the Tasters Guild Consumer Wine Competition:
The Improviser – Double Gold Medal
2009 Zydeco Zin – Double Gold Medal
2009 Pizzicato Petite Sirah – Gold Medal
2010 Swingsville Zinfandal – Gold Medal
2007 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon – Gold Medal
A month ago, R&B opened Alameda Vintners Club, a new wine bar/tasting room at Angela’s Bistro, which has turned the back third of the restaurant into “an inviting wine mecca with the wines of a few selected local East Bay wineries,” organizers say.
Chef Saboor is offering a menu of special food-pairing appetizers to go with the wine tastings or flights.
R&B is participating in the upcoming Family Winemakers of California event, set for Sept. 9 and 10 at Fort Mason Center in San Francisco. The event is open to the public from 3-6 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 9, and there will be many delicious California wines available.
