When we arrived we were met promptly with a very knowledgeable/friendly expert for the private tasting. We were taken to a very nice room which is set aside for this type of experience. All were able to ask questions, and our host was able to explain everything well and in various levels of technical knowledge for the different people in the group (ranged from first time tasters to vinophiles).

The entire staff is always pleasant and engaging. The wine, obviously, speaks for itself! Pam is one of our favorite people. She always greets us with the most pleasant demeanor, whether over the phone or in person. She's a great face for Winery! The entire experience at Steven Kent always exceeds our expectations. It's the first place we go when we are in town! Why go anywhere else?!?

Having made the reservations numerous times I always enjoy the experience with the Steven Kent Winery. The Staff assist you and provide a relaxing and very enjoyable experience. They are very familiar with the wine selections and enhance the experience by providing a history of the wines and were and how long the process took prior to our tasting. The Best in Livermore

Excellent tasting and worth taking home. Great ambiance - outside area was dog friendly and the tasting was served at our table. Great place to bring a picnic or just enjoy the outside. We arrived at a “calm” time, I’m sure it gets crowded from time to time, but we enjoyed the peaceful atmosphere. The facilities were excellent and we have some wine to remember our stay when we’re back home.

First of all, thank you Patti for her patience and professionalism. I love the presentation at the tasting room but I personally prefer some snacks and charge your guest a bit more or have the option for them if they prefer snacks at additional charges. I am Asian and they do not drink with empty stomach...that is my personal suggestion.

Did a reserve wine tasting in the Barrell Room, which you need to book at least a day in advance. They do an excellent job of limiting the size of the group, the room can accommodate more people, but they want to personalize the experience. The host knew a lot about the wine and the winery, and made us feel welcome and valued.

The tasting at Steven Kent was fabulous - I highly recommend it. These wines are comparable to Napa and are by far the best in the Livermore Valley. You couple that with the friendly and knowledgeable staff and you have a winning combination. Its a "must do" in wine tasting.

As club members we already knew that we would have a great experience as usual. But we brought along some friends to introduce them to SK and the amazing Lineage flight in the reserve room. They loved it! They loved the wines, education about Livermore wine appellation and the overall experience. Steven Kent doesn’t ever disappoint!

The wines, setting, and staff were very nice and helpful. The biggest negative was the price. The talk and discussion during the tasting was very good and went for over an hour. However, the price of the lineage wine at the winery was very high. Compared to other very nice wines and even compared to buying Steven Kent wine at certain retail shops, the price was much too high.

From the moment we walked in a couple of minutes early and they were finishing their set up of our table, they made us feel very welcome. We had a large group in our tasting and our guide was very patient yet found a way to keep our attention and bring us along for what was called the Cabernet Crescendo. What a pleasure tasting what I think are some of the finest Cabs Livermore has to offer!

My friends and I had a great time at Steven Kent winery. Were a party of 4 and although we arrived a few minutes late from our appointment, the staff still welcomed us with a reserved table. It was a busy Saturday afternoon but we had a friendly and pleasant experience. I liked the rose and the fish school wine which we brought home with us. I wish Steven Kent Winery all the best!
