Rios-Lovell Estate Winery

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.

Taste Our Terroir 2018

Another year of Livermore’s premier wine and food event is in the book! Taste Our Terroir, the Quest for Pairing Excellence was amazing once again. Here are some highlights from the evening.

Las Positas Vineyards

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.
