A West Oakland warehouse that formerly belonged to American Steel, the location has been transformed into a venue for installation art that showcases the best of what the Bay Area has to offer.
Housed in a statuesque brick building, this gallery specializes in site specific works. The art displayed here relies on the gallery's space, creating a comprehensive experience in experimental art.
Dashe Cellars produces a Dry Riesling, a Grenache, a Petite Sirah, and a Cabernet Sauvignon, but Zinfandels are their real specialty. They have five: one from the young Florence Vineyard in Sonoma, one from Todd Brothers Vineyard in Geyserville, a Late-Harvest Zin picked from Lily Hill vineyard at Bella Winery, another from the Dry Creek Valley, and one made from 70-year-old Louvau Vineyard vines in recently re-discovered buried beneath weeds on a Sonoma County property. They have a second tasting room, Family Wineries of Dry Creek Valley, in Healdsburg.
In addition to being an art space, Ghost Town Gallery is a respected venue where various Bay Area artists including Grand Lake and Man/Miracle perform. The abundance of art and music combines to create a wonderfully hip and engaging environment.
