Palo Alto Attractions

The historic city of Palo Alto and home of the iconic Stanford University Campus is conveniently located between San Jose and San Francisco in Northern California - thus only a short drive from hundreds of attractions. Business travelers will be in the heart of the Silicon Valley, and tourists can enjoy the local shops, restaurants, galleries, and scenic beauty that surrounds them. During your stay, be sure to visit Rock Wall Wine Company.

 

Visit Rock Wall Wine Company

 

Open daily from 11:30 AM - 8 PM, The Rock Wall Wine Company offers wine tasting, happy hour specials, delicious cuisine, and food pairings, in addition to live music entertainment performances every 2nd and 4th weekend of each month. Come alone and meet new, like-minded individuals, bring your friends, work group or family. Reservations must be placed in advance for groups of eight or more. While the Tasting Room is restricted to individuals age twenty one and over, guests with children may enjoy the first-come-first-serve outdoor patio seating.

 

The Tasting Room fee starts at an affordable rate of $15 per person for a five-wine sampler. Group package pricing starts at $25 per person for a ten-wine sampler minimum. Some new featured wines include the 2015 Tannat Palindrome, 2015 Zinfandel Pearl Hart Reserve, 2017 Albarino and 2017 Fiano, to name a few. Saturated with aromas of herbs, raspberries, black tea, black pepper, and graham cracker cacao, and full of plum, rose petal, anise, and black cherry flavors, the Tannat has been a guest favorite since its release. Pearl Hart Reserve was aged in oak barrels, carries the scent of cherry and spice, and features sophisticated blackberry, honey, cherry blossom, pipe tobacco, and berry pie flavors. For guests desiring a lighter taste and/or with a preference for white wines, the award-winning, cold-fermented Albarino carries the scent of bergamot, lime and honeysuckle, and tastes of nectarine, orange pith, and lemongrass. The even more popular Fiano carries the aroma of nectarine, banana, honey and orange blossom while exhibiting flavors of pineapple, white peach, tangerine, and lemon meringue. Fiano has fast become a company favorite and is highly recommended. Dozens of other crafted wines are available ranging in variety from reds, whites, sparkling and dessert.

If guests find a wine they enjoy, they can purchase larger quantities either by the glass, bottle or by the case to take home.

 

 

Rock Wall Wine Company teamed up with Italian-based restaurant Scolari’s At The Point for exceptionally delicious cuisine perfectly paired with the wine menu. Sample some classic gourmet burgers, hand-tossed pizzas, cheese platters, and mouth-watering appetizers. Pair many of the white wines with beet & creme fraiche, house smoked salmon lettuce cups, strawberry prosciutto tartine and watermelon & cucumber salad. Fine pairings with many red wines include the blueberry bacon blue cheese burger, tandoori meatballs, salmon pie, mushroom beef and barley soup and duck liver pate.
