Open house, Livermore's own Thomas Coyne Winery

IMG_8647

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, […]

Choosing Your Wine For Thanksgiving

Bryersantis

Thanksgiving is upon us once again.  For many of us that means it is time for the traditional Turkey Bowl football games, getting together with family and friends, and of course eating way too much.  Hopefully you have already stocked up on all of your delicious treats and drinks for tomorrow.  If you […]

In this episode of Bryersantis Uncorked, I reviewed Longevity Wine’s 2009 Livermore Valley Merlot. Yet another Livermore Valley winner. Take a look below to see what I thought.   Some advances this time.  Better lighting, camera and location.  One problem however.  My producer, film maker and editor had his finger over the mic of the […]

Another research Friday this past week took the girls of Bryersantis to Page Mill Winery in Livermore.  Haven’t been there in a while but from what I remember, their wine was excellent.  I was lucky enough for Julia to bring home their 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon for me to try.  I’m enjoying it as I […]

Just last weekend Julia and I had a chance to visit Livermore’s own Crooked Vine Stony Ridge Wineries.  I still cannot believe the gems that are here in my own backyard called Livermore.  Crooked Vine Stony Ridge is a gem alright, let me tell you.  The moment you walk in to the winery there are […]

Carl and I had a small carved out amount of time last weekend to sneak away and do a little Livermore Valley Wine tasting.  I cannot tell you how much spending time in this valley makes me smile.  To be able to drive out just a few minutes from our home and be able to […]

What makes a good day a great day of wine tasting?  Taking a winemaker and his wife that happen to live in Santa Rosa, the heart of the world’s most famous wines, to a winery and having that winemaker be impressed by the entire wine flight…..That is exactly what happened last week at Cuda Ridge. […]
