Livermore Valley Taste of Terroir July 21

Join Livermore Valley Winemakers and Bay Area Chefs at "Taste of Terroir" for a delectable evening of wine and food pairings showcasing the Valley's bountiful "Terroir" (French word for soil and is pronounced "ter-wah") on Thursday, July 21 from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m. Each winemaker and chef team has worked hard to create innovate wine and food pairings for guests to enjoy. Guests can cast their vote for People's Choice Award as they taste all of the creative pairings. In a blind tasting, our Culinary and Media Judges for the evening will present awards for Most Innovative Pairing, Judges' Best, and Best Classic Pairing. Guests can also enjoy live music on the patio and bid on silent auction lots. 

The Culinary and Media Judges for the event are:
  • Laura Ness– Wine writer Independent Magazine
  • Courtney Cochran– Certified Sommelier, author and wine consultant from “Your Personal Sommelier” in San Francisco
  • Sara Schneider– Wine Editor for Sunset Magazine.
The following Livermore Valley wineries who are participating this year will showcase the best this unique wine region has to offer, paired with several local area restaurants. This is sure to be the best food and wine pairing event of the season.
