Livermore Valley

1 of 5

The Livermore Valley is a growing suburb of the greater San Francisco Bay Area. It is best known as the location of the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, part of the Department of Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration. 

Well before Livermore knew atom splitting, there were grapes. Planted first by German and Irish immigrants in the mid-1800s, the Livermore Valley is one of California’s oldest wine regions. Two of its founding families, Wente and Concannon, continue to work the land and make wine.

It is also a place of renewed invigoration and recognition. With small producers pushing the charge for higher quality, the wines are achieving new heights. —Virginie Boone
