This is my second visit to bring friends to SKW. My friends were very impressed with the entire experience. We started our wine tasting at SKW first and visited another winery recommended by our wine host. The other winery was a disappointment after our wonderful experience at SKW and your exceptional wines.

The Opus One of Livermore Valley. Love Lineage. Bought the 2013 & 14 to store away until 2020 or beyond. Very excited. Only thing I think needs some help is the trailer that the reserve tasting is in. It doesn't speak to the quality of this wine. It's pretty tired inside. I hope there are plans to improve the experience.

I enjoyed this visit, but it was briefer and more rushed than I anticipated. Also, there were no chairs, so I needed to stand at the tables. Given that the appointments were for one hour of wine tastings, I thought that I would be given a lot of information about the wines. My pourer was helpful, but he spent about three minutes per wine with me, and I tasted five wines.

From the outside looking in most people know Livermore Valley as Wente's wine country. Which in many ways it is.....but with that said there are no better wine makers than Steven & Craig here at the SKW. Specializing on what Livermore grows best, Bordeaux varietals primarily from his Gheilmetti Vineyards. Steve has been able to cultivate the best representations of what this region can do.

Amazing experience. The wines are outstanding quality, and the knowledge and style of the staff made the tasting a special experience. One key aspect to this wine adventure is they pour all 4 of the tastings in different glasses to ensure you can compare and contrast all of them at the same time. I love that!

I think we would enjoyed the wines more if the tables had chairs. Also our wine pourer had a snobby attitude, didn't tal;k much in a conversation. the number one snobby thing was the curtain where after pouring the guests tastes they all go behind the curtain and probably talk about all of us out there drinking. Maybe instead of walking away to the curtain room, stay and converse.

We had a great, sit-down tasting of Steven Kent's premium wines, with very knowledgeable Greg leading us through the wine, earth, Livermore Valley history, wine history, pretty much everything we could think of to ask, he knew. It was a very enjoyable experience, we always recommend Steven Kent when asked.
