The 12 Wine Districts of Livermore

The 12 Wine Districts of Livermore

California is home to a wonderful variety of wines, nearly one for every taste. Soil and weather play a major role in the characteristics of the grapes, and the resulting wine. The Wine Institute has divided California into 107 American Viticultural Areas, or AVAs. The Livermore Valley is one these 107 AVAs, and now has been further sub-divided into a dozen districts that capture the unique elements of each area. Let’s explore them!

How do you show Mom the perfect Mothers’ Day experience? At least in our family, the day should include wine tasting. Following a great lunch just off Jack London Square, we walked a few more blocks to Urban Legend. Mom felt the love!

It is a small world, after all! How else could a chance encounter in a Paris wine bar lead to an amazing experience in a Australian wine bar? That’s exactly what happened with a French recommendation brought us to “Love, Tilly Devine” in Sydney.

The Foxies- July 20th

(Special guest opener Jon Williams)

The Foxies are an indie pop foursome now prowling a melodic crossroads of new-wave glam, punk rock, and high octane dance-floor fire. Based in Nashville, Tennessee, the band's roots stretch from the wide-open expanse of Arizona to the tangled urban jungle of New York City, created by front woman Julia Lauren Bullock and featuring guitarist Jake Ohlbaum, bassist Kyle Talbot and drummer Rob Bodley.
The Foxies are a new favorite of Darcie Kent, as well as her winery! Their upbeat tunes keep us dancing. The band is on the verge of breaking into the big time and we are excited to introduce them to NorCal!
