The Livermore wine scene is always growing and changing, bringing something new for wine lovers to experience at every turn. Recently we were able to welcome a new winery to Livermore on their very first weekend. Welcome Arroyo Cellars!
When is a winery tasting room NOT a tasting room? When it is a members only lounge-style space like the new Lion’s Den at McKahn Family Cellars.
A sunny, lazy Sunday afternoon in Livermore wine country! What could we possibly do? Of course, we chose to have a picnic at Retzlaff Vineyards and made the most of the day!
Alameda is becoming a wonderful place for winetasting! Monarch Street can be host to an entire day of tasting. On this fine summer day, we visited Dashe Cellars in their new location.
Visiting an established (winery) friend in their new place, what could be better? We could not wait to visit Urban Legend in their new Alameda tasting room!
So it was a clear, sunny Sunday in the Bay Area and we had finished all of our weekend tasks. How could we top off a great July day? With a trip to Rock Wall Wine Company!
Wine club release parties are the best! Great new releases, many times some food pairings, sometimes even live music. The recent Eagle Ridge Vineyard release party added an extra level of excitement when they released their very first Rosé!
The long and rainy spring had finally retreated, allowing a warm, sunny day to signal the onset of summer. It was time to put the top down on the car and get some winetasting going. Dante Robere was at the top of our list!
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!
The Yarra Valley in Australia is home to numerous wineries, but few have the history, the vineyards, and the winemaking expertise to match Helen’s Hill.
With only two weeks to tour four regions of Australia, our itinerary was tight. But fear not, we DID save some time to do some wine tasting. Top of our list? Yarra Yering!
