Wine lovers from around the Bay Area descend upon Livermore Valley to partake of the Harvest Wine Celebration.  Since this event is only open to ticket holders, do not miss out on this fantastic event and get your tickets now.

Harvest Wine Celebration is on Sunday, September 4 and Monday, September 5 between noon and 5 p.m., local wineries will offer Livermore Valley’s best wine, food, art and music to ticket holders.  Advanced tickets are $45 each (day of the event tickets are $55).  Tickets include a commemorative Livermore Valley wine glass, admission and tastings of at least two wine varietals at each of the participating wineries, parking and official event program.  Non-drinking tickets are $5.  They are available on-line at the Livermore Valley Winegrowers Association, and several local wineries.
