Wow. I left the Bay Area a long time ago and haven't had many chances to visit wine country since. And I thought wine country still meant Napa, Sonoma, Russian River valley. I can't believe I was completely ignorant about the Livermore Valley and wineries like Steven Kent until this year, but what a revelation! Their Merrillee is now my... More

My boyfriend and I were doing some wine tasting in the area and decided to stop by for a tasting. They were hosting a private event, so they weren't doing any tastings that day; the were only selling bottles and glasses outside. Service wasn't very good. The wine-tenders were too busy socializing with each other, and clearly weren't too concerned... More

We were able to get a private tasting in the club room with Greg Lamberg when we visited this winery. Greg's tasting was full of fun and education - and we came away with a better understanding of Steven Kent's wines, but also with the history of wine in The Livermore Valley and the present wine making stories of the...

Recommending a winery is always difficult because you don't know why people are visiting. My husband and I love wine so Steven Kent is an automatic stop from the airport. He makes amazing reds, any varietal. And he does in Livermore Valley what others don't seem to be able to do - make great wine. It is the world's greatest... More

Hoping to taste some pinot noir from La Rochelle winery only to discover Steven Kent recently sold the winery. Steven Kent winery offered 4 wines for a $15 tasting fee. The chardonnay was unremarkable after having just tasted much better at Wente. Same for the three reds. If you spent $50 the tasting fee was waived and most of the... More

We visited the Steven Kent Winery barrel room and had a GREAT experience. Not only was the wine excellent (the blends especially), but the staff went above and beyond to make sure we had a good tasting. From the back room prep area, our server noticed we all tasted and poured our wine in the spittoon. She quickly ran out,... More

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!
