East Bay Express: Dashe Cellars Is Leaving The Jack London District, April 3, 2019


It's Oakland's loss, but Alameda's gain. Dashe Cellars is moving from its current home in the Jack London District and relocating to Spirits Alley in Alameda Point.

The winery, owned by married couple Mike and Anne Dashe, was founded in 1996. The winery settled into its current home in the Jack London District at 55 4th Street in 2004. When the winery first moved in, Mike Dashe said, it was one of the few wineries in the Jack London district. Eventually, other wineries followed suit, and Oakland became something of an urban winery hotspot.

But when the winery's lease ended and the landlord increased the rent three-fold, Dashe said they had no choice but to relocate. The last day of service at the Oakland location will be on May 12, and the first day of service at the pop-up tasting room at their new location in Alameda (1951 Monarch Street, Suite 300) will be on May 18.
