Livermore Valley Featured Wineries

It lies less than an hour east of the city of San Francisco and is home to some of California’s most storied wineries. The first international Gold medal awarded to a California wine was a dry 1884 Sauvignon Blanc from Livermore at the 1889 Paris Exposition, and much of the Chardonnay we drink today originated from plantings by Wente Vineyards.
