2023 Passport to Livermore Valley

In Livermore Valley, it’s not unusual to find the winemaker behind the tasting room bar. That’s because we take a more personal approach to crafting wines that rank among the finest in the world. The community of growers and vintners in Livermore Valley welcomes you to a place where incredible wines meet family-style hospitality.

Our name has changed from Wine Country to Wine Community to encompass the warm, friendly atmosphere that invites you to experience the award-winning wines and hospitality that this region is known for.

The Livermore Valley Wine Passport is our personal invitation for you to come re-discover this wine region that has historical roots dating back to the 1800’s and has now hosted 6 generations of winemakers and growers.

This passport for only $300 a year allows you and a guest to visit 38 wineries over the course of the year, and includes a complimentary tasting for 2 at every one of these unique properties.

The vision of the passport is to encourage visitors to make their way around our Valley and try every participating winery once. If you fall in love and wish to be a repeat guest at your favorite spots, we hope you will join our wineries’ clubs. These programs are designed for fans to enjoy events, special wine release parties, and discounts, all while giving our wineries fundamental support.

Livermore Valley Wine Country is the closest wine region for many Bay Area residents. We invite you to be delightfully surprised and to discover the award-winning wineries and intimate tasting experiences in Livermore Valley.

The Livermore Valley Wine Passport is an excellent holiday gift for friends, family, teachers… or anyone who enjoys an afternoon in wine country. Purchase now, and you will receive a physical passport by mid-December. It can be used from January 1 through December 31, 2023. Read More

The Terroir of Livermore Valley Wine Country

Article by HearHere Productions

It reads like the name of a horror movie but is the complete opposite! Actually, the word “terroir” means “soil” in French and when you’re talking about a wine-growing region, otherwise known as a “Viticultural Area,” the soil is of utmost importance. The French use the phrase “gout de terroir” when speaking of certain wines. It translates to “taste of the soil” and no, it doesn’t mean that the wine taste like dirt, it refers to that rich, earthy flavor that some wines carry. Read More
