Solano Cellars
Small Production Wine
West Coast and Worldwide
Established 1978

Solano Cellars is located in Albany, California, just north of Berkeley. For the past thirty years, we've earned a reputation for discovering emerging wineries, championing the classics and creating a unique, inclusive environment where wine is a common interest for people from all walks of life.

Many alumni of Solano Cellars have gone on to have an effect on the culture of domestic and imported wine. With a 30-year history, it is hard to find someone in Northern California who hasn't passed through our portals. The founder of Solano Cellars, Bill Easton, makes highly-regarded wines in the Sierra Foothills with his wife Jane. We encourage you to visit their winery and to sample their wines - they are excellent. We like to think that the current generation of people at Solano Cellars preserve the senses of curiosity and passion that motivated the Eastons to open Solano Cellars decades ago.

Today, Solano Cellars features an acclaimed selection of small production wines from around the world with special concentration on hard to find California wines. A welcoming wine bar is nestled away upstairs and serves a fresh, seasonal menu with artisan cheeses and salumi, paired to adventurous wine flights, high end tastings and wines by the glass. The wine bar also hosts regular wine classes, wine and food pairing dinners and visiting winemakers from all over the world.
