1 Meritage Lane, Walnut Creek
Last October Shadowbrook Winery, Walnut Creek’s very first winery and tasting room since prohibition opened in the Northgate area of Walnut Creek. The inside is exquisitely designed with a main bar area front and center, surrounded by separate sections that can be rented out for events. Wine tastings are available on weekends and can be booked here. Their online wine collection can be found here.
From their website:
Shadowbrook Winery has become Contra Costa County’s most decorated winery in San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition with over 60 medals.
Although a boutique winery, Shadowbrook is a leader in the industry featuring state-of-the-art equipment and technology rarely found anywhere in the U.S.
Tim Jochner grew up in Walnut Creek not far from where Shadowbrook Winery stands today. Like the wine growing region itself, Tim has deep roots here and takes tremendous pride as the catalyst in revitalizing the grape growing industry that once thrived here before prohibition.
