Livermore Valley Fenestra Winery 2007 Zinfandel

Simply put, a GREAT wine from Fenestra.  Again, from right here in Livermore.   Sometimes I just can’t get over the great wineries right here in town.  I feel lucky to live here.  Anyway, back on track… a GREAT wine.  This is a truly a Zinfandel in every sense of the word.  If you never have tried a good […]

Nottingham Cellars 6 for 6 at the SF Chronicle Wine Competition

Nottingham Cellars is a new comer to the Livermore Valley.  They are just now celebrating the one year anniversary of their Livermore tasting room, but that and the fact that they have one of the youngest winemakers in the Valley has not slowed them down.  At this year’s San Francisco Chronicle wine competition Nottingham […]


Grappa – ever hear of it?  My first introduction to it was on the Food Network.  I believe it was one of those shows where someone travels all over the world and tries crazy food and drink.  The loction was Italy.  The drink was Grappa.  While browsing at the Livermore Grocery Outlet, my eyes came upon […]

Fantastic Wines Currently at the Grocery Outlet

About a year ago, Todd and I were gifted with an amazing bottle of Ruby Hill Grapeful Red signed by an amazing group of people.  We have been hanging on to this bottle for a couple of reasons – 1. Because it was such a special gift and we didn’t want to just open it […]

2011 is going to be a great year!

The Bryersantis Family has challenged ourselves to take our love of wine to new levels in 2011.  Just before the end of 2010, we were all able to get together for a *planning* session and discuss our goals for this year.  It was great to find out how like-minded we all were when it came to […]

Demitri’s Taverna & Swirl

Before the New Year kicked into gear and after the extravaganzas of Christmas, Carl and I decided that we needed a night out on the town.  What town you ask?  Why of course, our hometown, Livermore.  With so many restaurants to choose from, we narrowed it down to one that we hadn’t tried before and that […]
