Thanks for the Livermore Valley wine story! I have always maintained that Livermore is as capable as any region in the world (Napa included) to grow world-class Bordeaux varieties, and there are a lot of winemakers here who are working hard to prove my contention true.
Every week, Livermore Valley becomes a better and better place to spend a winetasting weekend. New wine bars and restaurants are constantly opening downtown: hotels are just a few minutes from more than 50 wineries; and there is a sense of camaraderie and welcome here that is missing in many more famous areas.
Only an hour from SF, 40 minutes from San Jose and Oakland, nearer to Walnut Creek, the Livermore Valley really is the Bay Area's Wine Country.
