Livermore valley's wine region has become what Napa used to be before it got so full of itself. Yes great wines come from Napa and at Livermore you have to pick and choose your venues wisely, however, it retains the hospitable, genuine experience that does not require an arm and a leg just for the privilege of tasting before you...

Livermore valley is down to earth compared to its bigger more pretentious neighbors. Don't get me wrong it will still cost you some cash but you won't go broke or feel like you need a loan to get a tasting. This valley wineries offer family friendly choices that are still fun and offer exceptional wine.

so much to do. The wineries alone could keep you busy for a day or more depending, on your preference towards wine tasting. Not Napa Valley quality wines but indeed tasty. Plus downtown Livermore is very very nice. Lost of food choices, and wonderful nightlife with a very good vibe.

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
