We visited the Steven Kent Winery for a wine tasting. Upon arrival the host was stunned that we did not have reservations and suggested that we sit on the patio which was dusty and barren. About a half hour passed and our host never came so we went back into the winery and were finally given access to the $15... More

We did a tasting in the barrel room as well as the reserve tasting. Both were a very good experience with good wines and very friendly and knowledgeable staff. We enjoyed every wine that we tasted. There is also a nice outside patio for sitting and tasting. A very nice experience and we'll go here again.

This is a pleasant place to taste wine; there is a nice outside patio area (think picnics!) in Livermore. The winery was started in 1996 and it specializes in cabernet.

Steven Kent and La Rochelle are my favorites. Cindy, Tracey and Pam are wonderful! Great patio experience on summer weekends. The tasting room is great because you must be assigned a table so it is not the place for a bus load of power tasters. Best wine!

Visited Healdsburg, Sonoma, Yountville and Livermore - 6 wineries total. This, Steven Kent Winery, was my favorite. Karolyn & Pam were great hosts and the experience at Kent was fun, personal and relaxing. Would definitely go back!

Friends of our live in the East Bay area and recommended we try tasting the wines at Steven Kent Winery. We were blown away by the quality and ended up joining the club to receive wine periodically to our Michigan home. We are always happy with what we receive!

Nice ambience, standing around individual wine tasting barrel kiosks in a cellar. Better wine than other places, but Livermore Valley doesn't appear to be the best spot for good California wine. Friendly server.

The wine here was good. Tasting room was nice. Now, we did show up almost at closing time so maybe that was why service was not all that great. The person doing the pouring just came over, poured our wine and left. Did not stick around to explain much so we just drank and waited for the next tasting. We... More

I love this winery! The Barrel Room has the prerequisite dim lighting and smells pleasantly of wet oak and wine. Rather than bellying up to the tasting bar, you're escorted to individual tasting stations where you perch on stools surrounding clever tables with wine cask bases. There you are greeted by an employee of the winery, who pours samples of... More

We love living close to Livermore Valley and its 40+ wineries. Steven Kent/La Rochelle wineries are definitely among the best of a great selection and we look forward to continuing as members of their wine club.
