Open house, Livermore's own Thomas Coyne Winery

Just a few weeks back I went to go visit Thomas Coyne Winery because they were having their open house.  As always the property instantly relaxes you when walking up to the entrance.  Something about that 100 year old building with the fantastic view over looking the vineyards.  Oh yes, to top it all off, […]
