A new winery releasing some new wines — what is not to like? We were thrilled to be invited to attend the recent release party at the Omega Road Winery.
So it was the “Bonus Monday” part of the Livermore Valley Harvest Celebration and we were ready for a change of pace. We had visited a dizzying number of wineries on Sunday, so we were ready to slow down and really savor a tasting experience. We dropped into the Cedar Mountain Winery and found just what we wanted!
August in Lodi: brown hills, green vineyards, and deep purple grapes. A perfect visual palatte for any wine lover. What could be more wonderful to pair with such a visual feast than to sample the enological artistry of d’Art Wines?
It was a lovely day strolling Jack London Square, enjoying a bustling Farmers Market on this warm August Sunday. As we reached the end of the waterfront walking path we came upon one of the anchor tenants of the Square, Rosenblum Cellars. It had been several years since our last visit, so we went in to get reacquainted.
Classics come in many forms. One particularly intriguing combination of classics is a mainstay in the Livermore wine scene, combining classic cars, classic wine, and classic tasting experiences. That’s right, we are talking about Cuda Ridge Wines!
A beautiful summer evening, half-way through the work week, and we were looking for a way to relax and enjoy some of our local wine scene. No problem! We just drove over to Darcie Kent Vineyards for their Wine Down Wednesday!
Are you in Livermore and thirsting for some Italian-style wine? The solution is just around the corner: Rubino Estates Winery. They call it Cal-Ital, but we call it amazing!
With Livermore home to so many great wineries, it is easy to fall into a rut, visiting the same few wineries over and over. Recently we decided to revisit some of the wineries that we have not visited for a year or more. To our surprise, this list included the beautiful Rios-Lovell Estate Winery.
Another sunny afternoon in Livermore and it was time for some wine tasting! With so many fine wineries to choose from, how to create a tour list? We decided to visit some wineries that we had not visited for too long. First stop: the good folks at Las Positas Vineyards.
Some wineries run hot and cold, at least for us. Sometimes they’re a lot of fun, other times not so much. Other wineries, though, can be counted on to deliver a great tasting experience every time. Recently, we really needed a good tasting to save the day, so we went to Dante Robere. They delivered a great tasting once again!
We love visiting wineries! Recently, though, we were able to raise the experience to an entire new level: we LIVED in a winery. That’s right, we were surrounded by grapevines, with our hosts treating us to wine made from these very vines. Oh, and our hosts were the Count and Countess of the Chateau du Petit Thouars.
