Nothing lasts forever, and that certainly true with tasting rooms. We visited a familiar tasting room to have our first tasting of a new winery: Favalora Vineyards Winery.

We love food and wine pairings of all kinds. One of our favorite annual events just rolled around again and we had a chance to attend: the Bacon and Cab Pairing at Las Positas Vineyards!
It was a beautiful mid-week summer day and we were ready to get out of our house. With the Covid restrictions starting to relax a bit, we were ready for things to be a little more normal. What is normal for us? Why spending some time relaxing in a winery, of course! So we headed over to one of our favorite wineries for mid-week tastings: Ruby Hill Winery.
Visiting long-established wineries is wonderful, and discovering new wineries is always a thrill. This tasting was a blend of the two as we visited the new Del Valle Winery.
Springtime in Livermore is host to a wide range of weather conditions. On this particular Saturday, the cool air from the bay was swooping through Livermore toward the central valley. That meant cloudless skies and moderate temperatures. It also meant random, gusty bursts of wind. We decided to take advantage of the lovely day and checked in with Omega Road Winery to catch up on their latest wines.
A beautiful spring day, perfect for some winetasting. We only had time for one winery, so we went with a favorite: Eagle Ridge Vineyard.
With Covid restrictions finally loosening, we excitedly restarted our “normal” life as expected: visiting some local wineries! Our first day out included a number of favorites, including a gem, Ruby Hill Winery.
As spring returned to Livermore, along with an improved Covid rules, we were thrilled to return to our favorite pastime: winetasting! With great excitement, we returned to Dante Robere Vineyards.
The world was finally coming out of a year-plus lockdown, so we did the natural thing: we went winetasting! On this glorious spring day, we started our Livermore tour at Las Positas Vineyards.
During these challenging times of sheltering in place, one bright spot is “Netflix and chill.” We recently got to raise our Netflix game even more with a Cabernet Sauvignon and popcorn pairing from Las Positas Vineyards!
We love getting to know the people who make the wine we taste! As we all stay safe in our homes and exercise social distancing, we spent some time learning a bit about the winemaker at Charles R Winery, Lisa Lee.
