Livermore Wine Trolley

If you’re looking to explore the Livermore Valley Wine Country, this it the route to go! A ticket on the Livermore Valley Wine Trolley takes all the hassle out of wine-tasting by providing transportation to 3 pre-selected wineries, tasting fees, and lunch at one of the stops. Passengers also receive discounts at participating wineries and restaurant coupons for downtown Livermore restaurants.

Enjoy a day of luxury with Black Tie Transportation. Choose from Luxury BMW Sedans, Mercedes Executive Limo Vans, Cadillac Escalade, or a larger vehicle for bigger groups. Receive recommendations and customized itineraries, professional and courteous chauffeurs, and many more amenities. 

This fully converted WW2 Duck Boat has taken on its new assignment the USS Rubino. Instead of taking this duck boat into a body of water, guests are toured around the surrounding estate to view Rubino’s beautiful vineyards and views. The tour starts with a glass of refreshing bubbly and a taste inside the winery’s exclusive Library Tasting Room before boarding the duck boat. The tour concludes with a seated outdoor tasting of reserve and club wines paired with light food offerings from their very own Italian deli.
Up for some Sunday spelunking? Explore Wente Vineyard’s historic sandstone caves for a special underground wine and cheese pairing. Learn about the history of Wente’s longstanding family-owned operations in this unique setting. If you’re lucky, you may even get to peak through to one of their smuggling tunnels that they were forced to dynamite during Prohibition.

Established in 1881, Olivina Ranch is a family-owned, 70-acre ranch producing true California extra olive oil from olives grown, harvested, milled and bottled on this historic estate. Olivina Ranch grows six different olive varietals: Mission, Arbequina, Lucca, Frantoio, Picholine, and Century Mission trees. Several local restaurants use this locally produced delicacy while multiple retail locations carry it in stock.

During our three-hour workshops, attendees will witness the basics of beekeeping, learn how to build a honeycomb foundation and hive, and observe a live bee colony housed in see-through hives. Beekeepers will teach the processes of honey production, pollen storage, and wax building. The experience transforms from a class to a tasting for the final hour, when students are invited to sample wildly different monofloral honeys from specific locales or plants, such as star thistle, wildflower, and black sage. Then visitors aged 21 and older will visit the wine-tasting room to sample wines from the tasting menu for that day.
