If you haven’t visited Livermore lately you’re missing a great little City. No longer the scenic ranching community or the just the site of the internationally renowned Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, today Livermore is making a name for itself in the wine industry. The large vineyards, such as the large Wente and Concannon as well as small indi wineries have graced the valley since 1849. In 1984, Livermore’s microclimate was deemed perfect for growing varietals like Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon and Cabernet grapes. It’s only been recently that the region has gained the respect it deserves. Driving through the wine country, stopping for tastings and fine dining it’s not hard to feel like you are in Sonoma County.
Perhaps most surprising is the downtown, which has transformed into an exciting destination, with a movie theatre, a major performing arts center, excellent restaurants and unique boutiques. Livermore offers a variety of community events including the Livermore Pro Rodeo, Harvest Wine Festival, Days of Wine and Honey, Old-fashioned Fourth of July Celebration with fireworks, and a Fitness Day.
Livermore is a unique combination of rolling hills, scenic vineyards and a quaint downtown with a vibrant performing arts community.
