Following a one year pandemic pause, Riggers Loft’s Fleet Week celebration is flying back to Richmond with an air show viewing party Sun., Oct. 10 from 1-4 p.m. The wine company will host the party on its bayside patio, an opportune spot for watching the U.S. Navy Blue Angels fly over San Francisco Bay during its air show.

Riptide Station will entertain party guests with live music while they enjoy snacks and plates catered by The Arlington during the event. Riggers Loft’s independent wineries R&B Cellars, Carica Wines, Prima Matera and Wachira Wines will also be pouring the fruits of their labor.

“From the Riggers Loft patio, you have a perfectly unobstructed view of San Francisco Bay, so we hope everybody can join the fun!  And October brings some of our best weather,” said Charlie Dollbaum, winemaker for Carica Wines.

Party reservations are $10 per person, which includes a $5 coupon to apply to the purchase of a bottle of wine (must be 21 or over).  Kids 12 and over are $10, including a non-alcoholic beverage and snack.  Kids under 12 are free. To make your reservations, click here.

Riggers Loft Wine Company is located at 1325 Canal Blvd. in Richmond. Proof of COVID-19 vaccination is required for entry into the party. Questions? Contact Riggers Loft at 510.233-2065 or [email protected]. Learn more about Riggers Loft here.
