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.
