Wine & Activities; Perfect Pairings
We’re three weeks into California Wine Month. This week we’re highlighting Livermore Valley as the destination it truly is, and all the amazing activities you can partake in here. And of course the wine too!
Bike around the Valley
One of our favorite, and most efficient, ways to see Livermore Valley is by bike. But don’t let the rolling hills scare you. Pedego Electric Bikes can help make your bike day a breeze with one of their electric bikes. They even offer guided wine and brewery tours!
Downtown Livermore has more than 40 restaurants to choose from, and they are all delicious! Not to mention the many wine-bars and brewpubs you can end your night with. From Italian Cuisine to a hind end steakhouse, to rooftop dining, to a rustic and modern neighborhood restaurant and market, downtown Livermore has you covered.
And to put your mind at ease, Livermore Valley restaurants and wineries are operating under COVID-19 guidelines to keep you safe while enjoying your time with us. So you don’t have to wait to visit!
Spend your special day in Livermore Valley. There are so many unique and beautiful venues to say “I do” in Livermore Valley. Just ask our friends at Here comes the Guide.
Go for a Hike
Plan a Picnic
Who doesn’t love a wine country picnic? Whether you plan your picnic at one of the many parks, or on the lawn of one of the local wineries, you can never go wrong with wine and a picnic lunch.
Relax at a Wine Country Inn
Escape to a little slice of paradise surrounded by olive orchards and rolling hills of vineyards. Purple Orchid Wine Country Resort & Spa is the perfect getaway spot. Relax by the pool, get a massage, or enjoy a bottle of Livermore Valley wine on the patio. Whatever you do, you’re sure to be relaxed and rejuvenated by the end of your stay.
Schedule a Tee Time
There are several different golf courses to play in Livermore Valley. Practice your swing at a local driving range, or challenge yourself to The Course at Wente Vineyards; an 18-hole championship course that was a part of the PGA Tour’s Nationwide Tour.
Stand Up Paddleboard
This is one of our favorite summer activities! Spend a day on Lake del Valle and partake in a few different water sports. You can test your balance on a stand-up paddleboard, or kick back in a kayak and enjoy the lake views.
Take a Tour
Grab a group of friends (in your COVID social bubble, of course) and hop on the Livermore Valley Wine Trolley. They’ll take you through the valley while you admire the scenic views, and visit some award-winning wineries.
Or, spend a day like a VIP and take a wine tour on one of Black Tie Transportation’s many luxury vehicles. Whether it’s you and your best friend, or a small group of trusted friends or relatives, Black Tie has the perfect luxury car waiting for you, and you’ll be treated like a VIP all day long.
