As the setting summer sun cast a golden light over the vineyards, a radiant moon rose in the lavender sky above the lush grapevines. It was as though nature itself conspired to grace the kickoff of Taste Our Terroir, Livermore Valley’s premier food and wine affair.

“Throughout the year, Livermore Valley growers closely monitor the development of their grapes – from bud break in the spring, to harvest in the fall,” said Livermore Valley Winegrowers Association Executive Director Chris Chandler. “While climate is the main factor regulating the tempo of grape growth, terrain, soil and farming techniques also play key roles. The French refer to this as gout de terroir or ‘taste of the land.’ Terroir expresses a sense of place, as local conditions of land, climate, culture and technique create attributes specific to a region.”
