San Diego Field Trip

Springtime and harvest time are two of the greatest seasons in our  Livermore Valley.  This Spring we had some late rains and Jenny and I escaped to San Diego for a week.  We spent most of our free time at the pool instead of investigating which Livermore wines are most popular down here in San […]

Hidden Creek

Hidden Creek 2005 Syrah

Nestled in a small court off of Vasco Road is a winery named Hidden Creek.  This winery doesn’t have the grandiose architecture of the larger wineries, but behind their little storefront the winemaker, Jim Frost, applies his craft to make masterpieces.  I had the opportunity to try the Hidden Creek […]

Red Feather Winery

It was a beautiful day in the Livermore Valley today and the opportunity presented itself to expand my view of the Livermore Wine Country.  I had heard of Red Feather Winery on Facebook of all places and decided to give it a try.

2008 Chariot Gypsy Red

Some weekends are not for the weak of heart, some wines aren’t either.  This weekend was not for the faint of heart and neither was the wine.  After being yelled at by our back yard neighbor for not cleaning up tree trimmings after our yearly backyard cleanup, Tool Time style, we realized we should break […]
