Beautiful views

If you want to enjoy the brown California hills, this is great. Weather is usually warmer as well. Great natural beauty.

I have lived in Livermore for 20 years..the town has done a lot of growing in those twenty years..It went from 14 wineries to over 55 today...it also has several breweries for people who prefer beer to wine. Lots of restaurants downtown, two movies theatres, the Bankhead, lots of parks and trails. It should be on your list of next... More

I didn't visit the wineries, but the drive through winery row is amazing. Rolling green hills in the distance. Vineyards along the road. Why go all the way to Napa when the Livermore Valley is so close? If you're a wine enthusiast you must come here. Spend part of the day visiting the wineries then grab some food in downtown... More

I have posted reviews of Retzlaff and Concannon Wineries that two of our favorites. We have tasted at many other wineries and have never walked out without bottles of wine for our trip. YES, in other areas we have poured out our tasting samples and said thanks and good bye. My council to you, if you like/love good wine, go... More

The Livermore Harvest Wine Festival in September is a wonderful way to acquaint yourself with the Livermore Valley. A hop on-hop off trolley visits many of the local wineries where sampling can take on an art form. The weather is usually beautiful and sunny. Take a hat if you are follically challenged like me.

We go to Livermore Valley many times. Its a fun place to go with many wineries. The winery area is also a very good place for a picnic or to dine as several of the wineries have cafes and restaurants (Concannon Underdog and the restaurant at Garre Vineyand and Winery for example). One can do it on one's own, ride... More

New to the Livermore Valley. A friend and I spent a wonderful weekend visiting wineries, shopping downtown, and dining and listening to live music in the gorgeous back garden at Double Barrel. There was so much more here than I realized, and everyone we met was great.

Have you ever noticed that the Livermore Valley always touts the fact that it is one of the oldest wine growing areas in California? The problem is, that is their only claim to fame. If the area was that great for growing grapes, why did so many venture outside the area to grow better grapes? The best wine from this... More
