Hosts: Visit Tri-Valley and Livermore Winegrowers Association

IFWTWA thanks our members' hosts Visit Tri-Valley and the Livermore Winegrowers Association for coordinating their stay. All opinions expressed are the individual writer's and not those of, or influenced by IFWTWA. 


Five IFWTWA Journalists participated in the fun and informative Visit Tri-Valley Media Trip
. What made the event so special? An exceptionally well planned itinerary immersing the writers in the best of Livermore Wine Country and the surrounding Tri-Valley area.

The Tri-Valley is home to nearly 60 wineries, a craft beer trail with 23 stops, the first ice cream trail, California’s largest premium outlet shopping center, a world-class mall, one-of-a-kind boutique shops, hiking and incredible restaurants. From beer & wine tastings, to Dim Sum brunch, regional lunch and dinners, and a tour of the Blackhawk Museum, the participants had an inspiring hands on experience they will soon be sharing with their readers.

The group also spent one day touring four wineries in Livermore Wine Country. The wineries ranged from small to large. The wines were consistently good and show the time, talent and focus the vintners are putting into their craft. Their mission statement speaks for itself, “The Livermore Valley Winegrowers Association is dedicated to advance, protect and promote the quality wines, vineyards and experiences of the Livermore Valley Wine Country.”

IFWTWA thanks our hosts, Visit Tri-Valley and the Livermore Winegrowers Association, for a memorable visit and congratulates their efforts to promote tourism in a safe and sustainable way.
