Wonderful environment for wine tasting in Livermore Valley. Great for families and even dogs. Delicious fresh vegetable board to accompany the tasting. They were flexible and let me taste all reds. Only complaint was I could find their wine The Spur at a significantly lower price than the member discount at on line retailers.

I've been here before many times and had a great experience. However this time they seemed disorganized. After waiting for 10 minutes for someone to wait on us I finally got up and walked to the wine counter to ask why no one came to our table. Of course they were apologetic but it didn't get much better after that.

One of our favorite wines comes from Murrieta’s Well so we were really excited about visiting the winery. We came all the way from D.C. and made this our first stop. We were greeted at the entrance and given The Whip. Everything that followed was picture perfect. Diana was wonderful and even gave us a tasting of our favorite wine, The Spur, even though it was not on the tasting menu.

We booked the food & wine pairing as a birthday event. All of our guests LOVED it. The tour of the grounds with the history talk was fascinating & made me proud to be a member. We ABSOLUTELY got our money's worth in wine-the pours were wonderfully generous. Food portions could have been a bit larger, but the dishes were delicious. I also appreciate that we were able to bring in cake to celebrate.

The pacing of the tour was comfortable. The presentation of the wines was well done. The food and wine were delicious. In fact, we would return just for the food.

Happened to go for a seated tasting on Barrel weekend. Not enough parking and there should have been an attendant to direct traffic for overflow parking. Live entertainment was definitely a plus, they were exceptional talent! Charcuterie boards were the best I have had. A five-wine tasting was just enough and we received an extra pour on a popular wine that we inquired about.

The luncheon was held in the barrel room, which is really quite nice. Our wine expert, Rob, was very attentive to detail and made sure we understood how each course paired with the wine.

When you go to Livermore, I’d start with Murietta’s Well. You’ll learn a bit about Joaquin Marietta, but the wines are the highlight. You can only do so many tastings in a day, so we missed a lot of the area, but of the four we managed, Murietta’s Well was the best. Don’t be put off by needing to make a reservation, it’s easy with Cellarpass and worth the effort.

Chuck was amazing during our wine tasting. He was friendly, attentive and explained the wines thoroughly and tastefully. He even turned me around on a couple of wines that I'm normally not fond of (Merlot, Cab Franc) with his explanation and sense of humor. It's a beautiful venue, but we didn't care for the proximity of the power lines, which ruined the view.
