2 Mile Wines
Two Mile began as a group of wine and food lovers with a passion for the moments surrounding an exceptional bottle of wine. 2 Mile Wines is grounded in building local grower relationships and honoring the land they work, as evidenced in 2 Mile’s continued investment in the highest quality fruit that California has to offer, produced nearly exclusively organically and biodynamically; in a love of “true” wine which bucks conventional technique; and in the love of friends and family which guides every decision. They make wine in Berkeley and Alameda, with grapes from Sonoma, Livermore, and the Central Coast. Visit their office for a tasting at the 25th Street Collective.

Platinum Dirt jackets are one of a kind, handmade out of reclaimed vintage auto upholstery from the genuine leather interiors of old luxury vehicles. Despite the jacket’s avant-garde appeal, the essence of Platinum Dirt can be summed up into one phrase: Mean and Green. The hood ornament zipper pull, VIN breast plate, and uniquely patterned interior lining add to the jacket’s distinct edge. Reusing leather stripped from vintage cars makes the jackets Green, environmentally friendly, and ensures that our landfills will be that much lighter. Platinum Dirt is that staple sustainable piece for high fashion and celebrity society, with the likes of Jamie Foxx, Jeremy Piven and Adrian Grenier sporting their own one of a kinds.
