Like most wine lovers, we tend to accumulate wine. We have bottles of wine everywhere! Living in California, though, means that we need to pamper our wine. As a result, we have a number of wine fridges scattered about. So when we had the opportunity to check out a Newair Premiere Line Fridge, we got very excited!

It was the depths of winter in Livermore and we were feeling sorry for ourselves. There were clouds in the sky and the temperature was barely breaking into the 60s. Then we remembered our friends and family back east, struggling through snowbanks and sub-zero temperatures. To salve our bruised emotions we decided to further celebrate our wise decision to move to California and do some wine tasting at Concannon Vineyard.
In just a few weeks a festival with fine wine and great food is returning to the incredible Fort Mason Center for Arts & Culture. Its time to get excited about this year’s Uncorked: SF!

As the Taste of Route 116 was coming to an end for us, we had time for just one more winery. The answer was clear: we needed to visit Jigar Wines.
We were well into our day of tasting along Route 116, savoring wineries new and familiar. Our next stop was one of our favorites: Harvest Moon Winery.
Two of our favorite flavors are chocolate and wine. That made the “Chocolate Truffle and Wine Pairing” event at Las Positas Vineyards the perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon!
The Livermore Valley has a lot to enjoy during the holidays, but snow is not on the list. The way we like to get in the holiday spirit is to participate in the annual Holidays in the Vineyards.
We were enjoying the annual Taste of Route 116 event, which gave us an ideal excuse to visit one of our favorite Russian River tasting rooms: Taft Street Winery.
Being a member of a winery’s wine club has so many benefits that it is difficult to limit our memberships. One annual event that keeps us coming back every year is the Taste of Route 116 that features the wineries in the Russian River wine area. Our first stop was at our “home” winery for the area, Balletto Vineyards.
