Went for the LVWGA "Wine Wednesdays." Didn't know what to expect and was very pleased. Wine maker specializes in letting wine age longer than most. Several different whites and reds available. Definitely worth a visit.

The wine is excellent....especially the sparkling! Very fun to bottle your own especially when the wine is so lovely. The tasting room.....the setting....so relaxing....the jewelry to die for. The owners, Hal and Cathy, make everyone feel relaxed and oh so special!

This lovely place is out of the way, in truly, the rural if not scenic Livermore Valley...Lovely staff and unusual service, sitting at tables being served wine surrounded with a open space view and interesting interior "boutique" items. All this said? Overall? I think these...More
