About us:
First came love, then came marriage, then came a winery.

Dashe Cellars is a family-owned artisan winery located in the heart of the Urban Wine Country in Alameda, CA.

Founded by the husband and wife winemaking team of Michael and Anne Dashe, Dashe Cellars crafted its first vintage of Dry Creek Zinfandel in 1996. Since that time, the Dashe’s have focused on producing exceptional, single-vineyard wines using a traditional, non-industrial approach to winemaking.

Local Oakland winemakers Anne and Michael Dashe will be taking their urban winery, Dashe Cellars, from Jack London Square to 1951 Monarch St, STE 300 on “Spirits Alley” in Alameda. When the space became available in Alameda Point alongside fellow vintners and beverage enthusiasts Rockwall Winery, Hangar One, St. George Spirits, and Faction Brewing—and in the same building as Urban Legend Winery—Anne and Mike couldn’t resist making the move. “When we saw the view of the San Francisco skyline and sailboats sailing in the backyard, we knew that we needed to jump on the space,” said Mike Dashe.

The 18,000 square-foot space has room for fermenting barrels, tanks, their infamous “Black Bart” concrete egg used to ferment Chenin Blanc, and the massive oak foudres that Anne and Mike imported from Anne’s home country of France. The Tasting Room will be inside the hangar, carved out of a portion of the barrel room in the cellar. Plans have been drawn to build a deck where people can enjoy the view while sipping on wines by the glass. By design, the new winery will be a kid- and dog-friendly space, a welcoming destination for the whole family.

In their 23 years since they founded Dashe Cellars, Mike and Anne blended their passion for winemaking with their love of the San Francisco Bay Area. In a somewhat controversial decision 15 years ago, they bypassed the bucolic scenes of lush vineyards for a warehouse in Jack London Square, then transformed it into a world-class facility and destination spot in Oakland.

I had a Dashe wine at a local restaurant, so since the tasting room is right off the freeway in Oakland, thought I’d check it out. Tasting room is actually in the warehouse. Everyone was personable and knowledgeable. Not a wine officianado (sp?) myself, so not so sure I would trust my review, but I really liked half the wines, especially syrah and the port. My bf and I enjoyed the quiet outdoor wine garden. Always nice to support a local biz.
