Newly-opened in Oakland's waterfront warehouse district, Urban Legend Cellars bottled 700 cases for its inaugural release. It consisted of five wines: a 2009 Sauvignon Blanc made from organic grapes grown in Lake County, a 2008 Nebbiolo-Sangiovese blend also from Lake County grapes; and three wines, Rosato di Barbera, Barbera and Teroldego, made from grapes grown in Clarksburg, on the Sacramento River.
