Cerruti Cellars - Bringing the Family back Home to the Produce Market
Another Tudal Family milestone for 2011 includes the opening of our second winery homestead “Cerruti Cellars” and Tasting Room in urban Jack London Square, Oakland. Named in tribute to our patriarch and 1st generation California Grower George “Baci” Cerruti, an Italian emigrant from Genoa that lived to the ripe age of 99 to witness so many of our memorable occasions. We were quite fortunate to create this home for Cerruti Cellars by acquiring and transforming this unique building that was built in the 1920′s for cold storage by the Armour Food Company.
This burgeoning Jack London Square location holds considerable significance to the Tudal Family as it is just around the corner from the century-old Produce Market in Oakland (still in operation) where grandfather “Baci”, father Arnold, and I brought harvests for commercial sale dating back to 1932. Come for a visit and view our many growing and winemaking relics from the past along with our current award winning wines. Cerruti Cellars is also directly across the street from the soon-to-open Jack London Marketplace, which will house artisanal food and wine purveyors.
