Livermore Valley Port! Let’s not forget the Port!!

How can I forget something so important as a good taste of port after dinner? I have to say, the BEST Port for your money is the 2007 Dolce Amore from Ruby Hill Winery located in Livermore. At under $15 bucks, you can’t beat it! Dolce Amore, meaning “sweet love” in Italian, is Ruby Hill’s attempt at […]

2007 Cedar Grove- After the baseball game

Just came home from the ten-year old’s baseball game.  Great game. My son’s team won.  I’ve been wanting to try the Cedar Grove 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon that Julia picked up from the Grocery Outlet here in Livermore.  It’s going for $6.99 a bottle.  Not too bad.  This is a Livermore Valley wine produced and bottled […]

Simple Pleasures

As I was winding down from my work day, I came across an article titled “101 Small Pleasures You Can Enjoy Every Day”.  The list of things included things like coloring, the wind in your hair, treating the person behind you at the drive-thru, doing something nice for someone, kissing someone you love, and, a couple of […]

Swirl At Blacksmith’s Square

Located in downtown Livermore in a small cluster of old brick buildings, lies a small wine bar known as Swirl.  Although they also serve food, it’s the wines that you need to come here for. If you want a taste of Livermore, look no further than Swirl.  They offer a wide variety of Livermore wines, and their menu […]

I Have To Admit…

Cadbury Mini Eggs

FYI – Livermore Spring nights are made for Zinfandel and Cadbury DARK CHOCOLATE Mini Egg.  Cheers to chocolate and wine!

Surprise! Surprise!

Surprise! Surprise! I don’t know if my tastes are changing or what but tonight I tried the Akin Estates Zinfandel from Lodi that was delicious! I’ve never used this word for a wine before but it was. This coming from the not-a-big-fan-of-wine person. It was full of flavor, smooth and went great with the spaghetti. Great […]

Akin Estates Zinfandel

Went over to Livermore’s Grocery Outlet today and decided to check out the wine department.  For some reason, there are still a ton of Australian wines there right now which don’t really seem to be moving.  That’s always a sign that the wine is not the best.  Hidden within some of the wines that have been there a […]
