Our first What We’re Drinking - Sunday Edition was amazing! We got to dive into the amazing world of Livermore Valley and chat about why we are such an important and amazing wine region. We looked at a brief history of the Livermore Valley, the geography and climate that contribute to the beautiful vines we grow, as well as dive into some of the specific grape varietals... and of course, we'll got to taste a few of the amazing wines along the way!
We started What We’re Drinking as a way of sharing our love of wine with you! Wine is exciting, and tasting together makes it even more enjoyable! Each week, we’ll spend a little time looking at a particular wine region - a brief history (don’t worry, memorization not required, there are no tests), the geography and climate surrounding the vines, and a couple of important grape varietals. We’ll cap off our time together by sharing a glass… or at least a few tastes.
