Livermore Valley Wineries

This year we’ll explore the vineyards, convivial tasting rooms and enjoy award-winning wines of the Livermore Valley wine country! Boasting one of the original U.S. appellations granted by the BATF way back in October 1982, the number of outstanding wineries in Livermore Valley continues to grow each year. We will start the day with a visit to the acclaimed Alden Lane Nursery where we’ll take in a horticultural class. Next, we’ll experience the prize-winning wines and generous hospitality of Crooked Vine Winery. At our next stop, Wente Vineyards has graciously invited us to taste with one of the members of their winemaking team! A winemaker or perhaps their enologist will provide us with an exclusive tasting of their select wines, followed by lunch catered by Wente. Our grand finale will be a visit to Rios Lovell, pairing a chocolaty dessert with their lovely ports (even if you aren’t a port lover, you will no doubt find a favorite in their extensive selection). We recommend making your reservation soon, as this event fills up quickly.
