Nestled an hour east of San Francisco, the Livermore Valley is one of California’s oldest wine growing regions. Surrounded by lush vineyards, picturesque hills and quaint suburbs, the Livermore Valley has a rich history of wine making. Fifth generation winemakers, new winemakers and vineyardists all work in unison to usher the Livermore wine region into a new era of wine renaissance.
The region’s earliest history of winemaking began in the late 18th century, as Spanish missionaries planted and tended to the first Livermore Valley vineyards. Now, over 200 years later, the region has 40 functioning wineries, with over 5,000 acres of vineyards. These wineries range in size, from small, intimate 100-case wine growers, to the large, bustling 400,000-case heavyweights.
In addition to the welcoming and award-winning tasting rooms, the Livermore Valley has a wide array of activities for wine lovers and tourists of all kinds. There is an assortment of restaurants, ranging from fresh-seafood at Scott’s Restaurant to authentic Italian food at Terra Mia Cucina Italiana. Specialty wine shops, upscale retail outlets and beautiful country clubs guarantee that there will always be something to do in the Livermore Valley.
