The 20-Something goes Wine Tasting in Livermore

Being raised in Northern California meant that I developed an appreciation for great wine early on.  Trips to Napa and Sonoma were always on the list of places to visit when friends and family came into town, and my dad quickly became a wine connoisseur. What I didn’t understand until recently though, was that there are some fantastic wineries outside of the Wine Country that people don’t usually think of.

Livermore has over 50 wineries, several of which are home to gold medal winning wines! The quaint town is located in the East Bay and is the perfect place for an afternoon of local wine tasting that will keep you a little closer to home.

When my bestie Callie came into town, (Read her 20-Something Girl Spotlight here) we decided to try some local vineyards. Let me tell you, we were very impressed! 

Here are my top 5 Livermore Wineries:


Wente Vineyards

Concannon Vineyards

Murrieta’s Well

Page Mill Winery

Retzlaff Winery 

Let me know about any other wineries in the area that you suggest!
