We have all been told that Livermore Valley is one of California’s oldest wine regions, that the Spanish missionaries planted the first wine grapes in the 1760s, and that Robert Livermore planted the first commercial vines in the 1840s. But, of course, none of this is true! In fact, Livermore Valley was a latecomer to viticulture.

The actual history of Livermore Valley is much more interesting. It is the story of the land, the people, and the railroad. In this class, we take a step into Livermore’s past and discover the factual history of our Valley as told through the story of three wines. Ticket includes a guided wine tasting accompanied by a classic California menu item from the 1890s. Seating is limited.
