Retzlaff is one of the smaller wineries in Livermore. If you go during the week, it feels as if you are visiting friends who own a vineyard. Bring a picnic and purchase a bottle or two of their excellent wine and enjoy life. Their Rose is particularly refreshing with cheese and crackers.

Family owned and run winery which specializes in organic wines only. Friendly and informative family members staff the tasting room. Has some excellent vintages for purchase. A great place to take friends from out of town for a taste of the true Livermore wine experience.

This joint is one of a few in the area that is family and dog friendly. The tasting room is small like others have stated but the grounds are awesome. The prices are reasonable and they have a real bathroom. Trust me this is important, porta-johns are not fun ever but especially when it's 100+ degrees outside. Parking is adequate... More

I didn't really care for the wine that much except one of them. The grounds were nice, but the tasting room was so small you couldn't even stay and chit chat if you wanted.

This is the epitome of the small, wine focused, family ran and feel vineyard that a wine enthusiast desires. The tasting was so much fun and the grounds transport you to another place. Will return on a weekend to enjoy this one longer. The Port, and I am not a Port person, is amazing. If you can do a tasting... More

Visited this historic, family-owned winery due to its Bay Area rating (among other rave reviews) as one of the Top Wineries to explore in the Livermore wine region. Retzlaff lived up to its reputation & we thoroughly enjoyed our experience there! Reasonable tasting fee ($10) for a wide selection of excellent reds and whites. We were partial to the Chardonnay...

We had a bottle of their Savignon Blanc along with Lunch today. As the staff there described when this bottle starts warming the complex flavor just bursts out and it had the best buzz that we exeprienced in recent times. Also the house Reserve Cabernet Savignon shows the amount of expertise they have to seal in the oakey flavor of... More

If you like red blends, this winery is a must visit. If you're looking for a wine tasting experience to match the exceptional wines, this winery is a must visit. Be entertained by Michel, and you'll be happy you stop. Did I say that the blends were superb?

I arrived with my family at the winery and in a short period of time felt like family. In fact we met many family members during a visit that was far too short.Next time I will have a picnic,drink some wine and relax. I honestly did not want to leave, and knew my next winery experience would be no match.... More

Retzlaff is the first winery you'll pass as you come onto Tesla after the public library so you could miss it. However, drive down the dirt road on the left, and you'll come to a very quaint winery with excellent organic wines.
