Livermore Valley Winery and Tasting Room

Surrounding rolling hills and vineyards are calming here. In the back 10 acres, 28-year-old Big Red (a rescue horse) grazes.
Jessie, an aging golden retriever, may be lying on the tasting room deck alongside the 1925 Ford, Model TT truck (with its original engine).

When the Davis’ decided to change their lifestyle, Connie left her job as a childcare teacher and Dan left his Red Feather construction company. They started their winery in 2008.

Three couples met here at a Valentine’s Day event and returned to take their wedding vows.
