Murrieta's Well

Murrieta's Well is located at 3005 Mines Road in Livermore, California

Legend meets romance at picturesque Murrieta's Well. The winery is named for the legendary outlaw, Joaquin Murieta, who was known to have camped out on the property during the Gold Rush era. A winery was built on the site in the 1880s, and was brought back to life more than a century later, continuing a tradition of handcrafting unique premium wines.

Rustic Metal Wine Tasting Sign

The century old, stone winery building at Murrieta's Well is a stunning example of early California architecture. Constructed of local timbers and gravel extracted from the nearby Arroyo Mocho Creek, the winery has aged quite gracefully.

From the balcony, visitors are treated to extraordinary views of vineyards and oak trees dotting the landscape. The historic facility is available for private events and weddings after normal tasting room hours.
