About Wachira Wines
Wachira Wines is a black-owned, woman-owned winery in Alameda County and the culmination of the extraordinary vision and effort of Dr. Chris (Christine) Wachira, the first Kenyan-born, Californian winemaker, distributor, importer, and exporter. The #winesafari varietals offered by Wachira Wines represent a collection of well crafted, high quality wines.
The menu at Alley & Vine showcases the bounty that California has to offer – beautiful produce, pristine seafood, livestock raised with care. You’re sure to discover a favorite among the small bites, sandwiches, main dishes, and desserts.
Additionally, each cocktail is handcrafted with a reverence for season and quality and the wine list is one of the most preeminent in Alameda, featuring both domestic & international options.
But most of all, Alley & Vine is a warm, welcoming place to enjoy yourself and the company of those you care about.
Town Tavern offers a social environment with great drinks and bites. Specialty cocktails lean on East Bay spirits, including those from Wright & Brown Distilling and Oakland Spirits Co. The small plate menu includes fried-to-order chicharrones, bacon pierogi, bison poutine, New Orleans-style barbecued shrimp, and pork belly sliders loosely inspired by Taiwanese gua bao.
The 49-seat space is family-friendly until 10:00pm. Town Tavern then remains open late for the 21+ crowd.
