The results are in for the 2013 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition and the Livermore AVA has had another great showing.  Bryersantís would like to thank all of the wineries in the Livermore AVA for their diligence in creating world class wines and putting Livermore on the map as a wine region to be […]

Summer Has Arrived!

It’s summertime and the living is easy in Livermore wine country.  The kids have been released from school about a week and already I’ve taken advantage of so many good experiences that come with the privilege of wine country living.

It started with spending Memorial weekend under the shade of a romantic grape arbor […]

Livermore's Own Wine Blog

The night was chilly, the mood was Christmas-ey, and everyone was in good cheer.  Our daughter was floating down First Street in a glittery array of twinkle lights and candy canes.  Was this a dream?  No. It was the annual Livermore Christmas Parade.  The Livermore Parade has been a tradition for many years.  This is […]

Baby it's cold outside!

The temperatures are dropping fast like the leaves. The vineyards are bursting with the last colors of the season before winter really takes hold creating a most beautiful backdrop for the weekend to come.

Farmers Market

Livermore Wine Experiences

It’s been a little over a year since this picture was taken.  This was the evening that Bryersantís was born.  As the six of us sat in my backyard drinking Livermore wine, we questioned the reasoning behind going all the way to Napa for wine tasting when we had all of the Livermore wineries […]

Bike Ride Through Livermore Wine Country

Here in the Livermore Valley, there are some great roads to ride your bike on.  On Saturday and Sunday mornings, if you hit the right streets, it can be quite relaxing and challenging with many scenic, rolling hills and long, straight roads to test your endurance.  I always go up North Livermore to start my ride and as it curves […]
