An annual highlight of the Livermore Valley wine scene is the annual Taste Our Terroir weekend. Great news: it is time to choose your events for this year’s celebration! Here is what is just around the corner.
The wine tasting season of 2017 has begun! Nearly every weekend offers kickoff tastings at nearby wineries, many times adding food and live music to the already attractive new wine releases. This weekend was Fenestra’s Spring Fling. Here is a quick glimpse of their event!
Ever since I joined the Darcie Kent wine club, I’ve been darkening their door almost more than is socially acceptable. I like to toe the line between “hey, good to see you again,” and “this girl is REALLY back again?!” Thus far in 2017, I have been very successful in this goal. That’s why when it was time for the quarterly release party, I pulled up promptly at noon on Saturday like:
Spring comes early to California. While most of the country is still dealing with a snowy winter, Northern California welcomes sunshine and warm breezes in early March. Once the chill is off the vineyards there’s just one thing to do: go taste some wine OUTDOORS!
Visiting the Lone Done Wines tasting room is always an adventure. A rapidly-expanding wine list means that each visit offers something new. As we prepared for Valentine’s Day, we visited Lone Dove to taste the latest releases.

The Harvest Wine Celebration in Livermore is the area’s premier wine event of the year. The first day is chock full of bands, food trucks and craft vendors. The second day typically has fewer special attractions, but also fewer attendees. For the truly dedicated, like us, attending both days doubles the fun. Here are some memories from day two:
Livermore’s Harvest Wine Celebration brings together many of the wineries in the Livermore Valley, with unique tasting flights, live music and special events. Two amazing days with over 30 wineries to explore. With so many options, we had to make some tough decisions. Here are some highlights from Day One of the Celebration!
Sipping lovely wine, munching on fire-roasted pizza while watching the sun set on the hillside covered in grapevines on a mild summer evening. What could be nicer? Well… how about a nice (and free!) concert to round out the night? That’s what happened when The Sextones came to Darcie Kent Vineyards.
It’s time to get excited! Livermore’s Harvest Wine Celebration is just around the corner. This event brings together many of the wineries in the Livermore Valley, with unique tasting flights, live music and special events. But like most major events, a bit of advanced planning can take the experience to a whole new level!
The highlight of the Livermore Valley wine scene is the annual Harvest Festival. This celebration of the crush season features special tastings, events and activities at dozens of area wineries on the Sunday and Monday of Labor Day weekend. Before the Festival, though, the crush season truly begins with a very special ceremony: the blessing of the grapes.
