I lived in Stockton for a few months. I have been renting a plane from Livermore airport. I had the chance to fly several times above the Livermore valley. I was also passing it when driving from Stockton to San Francisco on the highway. It is a very spacious, peaceful, sunny area. The view by plane is really nice.

This is a great place to taste some of the best wine in California and not pay the high prices of Napa and Sonoma. People are friendly and the atmosphere is low-key not snotty. Many places to have a great meal and get out into nature.

On a recent visit to California,I was invited by friends to visit several Livermore wineries. It was certainly a great day out, and very interesting to find out about the different vineyards/wines. The one that stood out above the rest for me was Ruby Hill. The staff were very welcoming and very informative (despite the fact that there were few... More

A beautiful drive through the countryside to visit the area wineries. The leaves have turned and it is like a picture post card.

Livermore Valley is far lesser known than the regions north of San Francisco but with about 40 wineries the region is more intimate. The wine making has an equally admirable history. Considered "East Bay" it's only about 40 miles from SF and Oakland and close enough to San Jose that people live here and commute to their jobs in Silicon... More

Livermore Wineries are a fun place to go. Some are open during the week; majority are open on week-ends only. It is an excellent place to bike between wineries as there is a nice paved trail there. Downtown Livermore area is now lively with lots of restaurants, two movie theaters, and a live theater. Its changed a lot for the... More

Our recent visit to Livermore was just for a night but we've been before. Just seems a bit rough around the edges now more than before. Still the nice restaurants and ability to walk through downtown shopping area but just outside of that (Stanley Blvd/Railroad Ave/Livermore Ave) are where you'd need a buddy with you... Beautiful winery's abound and close... More

The Livermore Valley isn't necessarily a "destination city," like nearby San Francisco, but if you have a day to spare (and a Designated Driver), a visit to the Livermore Valley will be a delight for you wine lovers. Livermore rivals the more-famous Napa Valley in the quality and variety of the wines produced there. Vineyards and wineries are spread out... More
