Went to several events at Retzlaff Winery in 2017. Overall their red wines are ok, don't bother with their whites. The venue is nice, close to downtown, shady with picnic tables and some kid games. The staff can be snooty.

What a fine time we had here. With smiling personable staff and their great stories of the wine and the company, it's easy to consider going back for more sampling and purchasing what we all thought were the finest wines we sampled in Livermore.

It was too crowded in the tasting area. They were friendly, but we wanted to finish and get out. The lawn area for picnics is nice.
