Bravo to The Vine!

Mixing things up a bit Jenny, Julia, our friend Donna, and I decided to take advantage of another great feature Livermore has to offer. The Vine Cinema!  What’s better than going to see a movie with friends?  Well, along with your standard soda pop and hot buttered popcorn on the menu you can find a great selection of local Livermore Valley wines!  If that wasn’t enough you can also get a fabulous meal delivered to your movie seat in the theater from the restaurant next door, the Zephyr Grill!  This historic 2 screen theater, recently renovated, now offers a choice of comfy couches and tables for a more home like experience.  Once you get your tickets might I suggest a glass of Tamas Estates Double Decker Red Blend?  WOW!  I love this wine.  I’ve blogged about this one before and liked it, but it was better than I remembered today!  Julia got a glass of the Fenestra True Red Lot 24 (no longer being sold at Fenestra, but there it was on the Vine menu!) another fantastic wine.  Donna enjoyed the Wente Riva Ranch Chardonnay ( arguably the best chardonnay on the planet).  Jenny decided to go with beer.  What can I say?  It happens to all of us once in a while.  I do still find myself enjoying a margarita now and then so I can’t judge.  The food was delicious.  Jenny and I ordered a very yummy garlic, artichoke, spinach pizza from Zephyr Grill and a pear salad.  Julia splurged on a burger this time.  Yum-o!  Such a fun way to spend a Friday afternoon.  Though we can’t recommend the movie we saw, everything else was excellent and we can’t wait to go back and do it again soon!
