An authentic history of Livermore Valley is not complete without an exploration of the distillers’ craft. From the 19th century through prohibition, Livermore was producing some of the world’s finest brandies and vermouths. Occasio is hosting a private event for supporters of the Livermore Valley Winegrowers’ Association at our exclusive Sidewinder Lounge. Guests will learn about the early history of distillation in our valley, and taste alongside the owner examples of brandies and vermouths produced in the classic style. The event concludes with the tasting of the Sidewinder Martini – a new take on this American Classic.

This event is not open to the public.
