While wine lovers the world over flock to the San Francisco Bay Area to sample, discover and buy some of the best wines anywhere, they often overlook the Livermore Valley. That’s a major oversight because Livermore Valley – home to Wente Vineyards, the state’s oldest winemaker, and more than 40 other wineries – has become a maker of superb blends and varietals.

At this point we’ll yield to a voice far more authoritative than our own, Sunset magazine Wine Editor Sara Schneider, who is quoted on the book’s cover saying The Wine Seeker’s Guide to Livermore Valley “tells the collective personal story of winemaking in this historic, burgeoning, undersung California wine region.”

With that endorsement we invite you to buy a copy for just $9.99, including postage, from The Rose Hotel. Just call us at 800-843-9540 with your mailing information and credit card and we’ll ship a copy to you post-haste.
