I come to Livermore to visit the famous LLNL where some amazing scientists and engineers have done great things and continue to do today. LLNL aside, the downtown area is a pleasant eclectic blend of wine country town and trendy California scene. I find places like this in California with their walkable streets like 1st Street such a pleasant change... More

We moved to the Livermore Valley in 1976. We've seen many changes--most of them are good. (Traffic isn't so good on 580.) our downtown area is delightful, the parks are pretty, the community college is one of the best, and the shopping is great. It can get hot, but usually after a few days, the sea breeze comes and cools... More

After 30-years in the Bay Area we finally drove into the Livermore area with purpose. Wine tasting with friends! So many to choose from but friends selected Wente, 3-Steves and McGrail. Nice views of the hills while tasting the many wines offered. Unpretentious, friendly, easy to get around and virtually no traffic like Sonoma/Santa Rosa. A great way to spend... More

On the way to visit friends who live on Cull Canyon road we saw a tasting event at Twining Vine. We met the wine maker (Keith), his wife and a few other really nice folks. I did not taste but purchased 2 each of the Cab Franc, Chard and Merlot. Have not had the Merlot but really liked the other... More

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.
