Aimee and Bryan Wingen, the husband and wife team behind Wingen Bakery, both have culinary backgrounds rooted in the Tri-Valley and Bay Area. Aimee, their head baker, grew up in Livermore and was a former Sous Chef at Range Life (Livermore) while Bryan, the other half of this dynamic duo, spent 5 years as the General Manager of Homeroom Mac + Cheese (Oakland), and also bartended at Range Life. The two began baking in their home in 2020, serving up fresh sourdough bread and a variety of bagels. In Fall 2020, they opened up a booth at the Livermore Farmers Market, selling out every week. They’ve since moved into a Downtown Livermore location where they feature sourdough breads, sandwiches, pastries, and beverages.
The Martellas family started crafting wine barrel art in 2014 in what was initially an experiment project making a rocking chair for their newborn. Since then, this family’s craft and passion has only grown to include products like custom wedding signs, oak barrel guestbooks, wooden American flags, and more. An added bonus: this family of makers primarily uses reclaimed oak wine barrels from Napa and the Livermore Valley Wine Country.
