The Livermore Valley has many things in common with Italy's Tuscany region. The soil conditions and climate are strikingly similar. Rodrigue Molyneaux Winery captures the essense of Tuscany in a selection of robust estate bottled wines. The family-owned vineyard and winery specializes in complex full-bodied red varietals, including Barbera, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Bianco, Port, Primitivo, Primavera Rosa, and Sangiovese.

The wines are fabulous, but it's worth a trip just to enjoy the beautiful gardens and watch horses grazing happily in neighboring pastures. I love the tasting room, which is a restored horse barn. When Rodrigue Molyneaux first opened they offered wine tasting on wine barrel tables in the courtyard. The converted barn tasting room is more intimate and even has room for unique wine country gifts like locally produced olive oil and books about the Livermore Valley.

Visitors to Rodrigue Molyneaux Winery are welcomed by beautiful gardens, where rescued telephone poles enjoy new life as hardscaping for lush flower and vegetable beds.

The atmosphere is casual and perfect for relaxing with a picnic lunch and a glass of Primavera Rosa. The beautifully designed tasting room is a refurbished horse barn with interior walls bathed in golden yellow.

Wines and olive oil are available for sampling and purchase. Step outside for a self-guided tour of the grounds.
