Driving Directions to meeting place in Oakley, CA 


In Oakley: Where To Meet and How To Get There (Don't Get Lost, don't be late, CLICK HERE)

Many of the grapes that are picked are in Oakley, CA 94561, along the Sacramento river near the south end of the Antioch Bridge. 

For Oakley grapes we meet in the morning on pick day at the ARCO gas station at the corner of Main Street (Hwy 4) at Bridgehead Rd, Oakley, CA.  The address is 5540 Bridgehead Road, Oakley, CA 94561

If you go to "  Main St at Bridgehead Rd, Oakley, CA 94561" on map software you will see that the ARCO station is one block east of the freeway on Main street (Hwy 4, same thing) on the north-east corner (at Bridgehead Rd).

There is more than one ARCO station in Oakley, so don't go to the wrong one.  Go to 5540 Bridgehead Road, Oakley, CA 94561

When everyone gets there (most everyone) we leave and go to several different vineyards nearby depending on what varietal(s) of winegrapes folks want. 

If you get lost and don't show up on time, don't expect me to be there.  So don't get lost and don't be late.

Some days 40 to 50 people show up (or more) which keeps me real busy.  So, please, be on time and be prepared.
