When they left behind the stress of the corporate 9-to-5 to pursue their passion for wine­making, Steve and Marilee Shaffer didn’t retreat to a château in the vineyards. “We’re city people,” says Steve, who launched Urban Legend Cellars in a warehouse instead. Their tasting room is a must-stop on a walkable wine trail that wends around Jack London and includes such draws as Dashe Cellars and Jeff Cohn Cellars, whose namesake Zin-master is rightly acclaimed for his Rhône-based blends. The Shaffers rotate through pours of bone-dry rosé, bright Grenache Blanc, lush Tempranillo, and more.
