Our first What We’re Drinking – Sunday Edition was amazing! We are going to dive into 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 be sipping some wine in the process!
