I spent a weekend recently with friends who live in Livermore Valley in California, outside of the Bay area. I had a little time for a quick tasting trip to one of my favorite wineries, where I took my wine classes a couple years ago - Wente Vineyards.
Margo in the Vineyard Tasting Room hooked me up with Wente's latest Petit Sirah...inky and delicious.
If you find yourself in the Bay area looking for a less expensive, less crowded Napa / Sonoma alternative...head to Livermore Valley. And definitely stop by Wente and say hi to Margo!
Cheers, and thanks for following the VinoGals!
