I have friends in Livermore and visit there yearly. I've seen the area grow and improve the quality of its wines and can attest to its being an enjoyable place to taste the very best wines, many different styles and varietals, as well as an interesting place to visit for other reasons. Good restaurants, excellent golfing, outdoor cafes and shopping along a newly redone/revitalized main street in the city of Livermore. Convenient to BART for visits to the Bay Area. An excellent base for touring Napa and Sonoma too. Don't overlook Livermore!!
