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

Great: Designated Drivers fee at $10 and Shuttle Buses/Limosines on Sunday of Sun/Mon event. Great: Wine varieties, music, vendors, booklet outlining wineries and location of 'pour location' for each winery that elected to pour at another winery, very helpful. Not Great: Heat, timing. Perhaps 4 pm to 8 pm would have been cooler.

We moved here 9 years ago and couldn't be happier! This is a great place to raise a family! This is a very family friendly area with great parks, family restaurants and great neighborhoods!

Each year, during Christmas, Valentines Day, and Labor Day, there are major wine events in the Livermore Valley just east of San Francisco. Excellent wine, often music and crafts, make a visit a special event for guests to the San Francisco Bay Area. Many wineries are open during the week for visits and offer an uncrowded opportunity to enjoy great... More

Try Livermore if you want a down-home feeling, with beautiful back country and lots of wine tastings that rival Napa, Sonoma and Healdsburg.

I belong to a couple of wine clubs in the Livermore Valley. The people there are friendly and it's a nice area to stop when we're going to the central valley.

Napa has some good wines, but it can be a bit too crowded and commercial. Pack a picnic and head to Livermore to try out excellent affordable wines in a friendly, warm setting. This is an area of experimentation, so you can try out unusual ports (Westover), Portugese wines (Fenestra) and a whole lot more. Many have picnic areas and... More
