Top 3 Reasons to Visit McGrail Vineyards and Winery in Livermore Valley 

1. You Have to Try the Famous Cabernet Savignon 

McGrail Vineyards and Winery has all of the elements that a winery could hope to achieve. This Livermore Valley winery has created an elegant space, unique group experiences to create lasting memories, and bottled excellence in the form of their Cabernet Sauvignon. California Wine Advisor even describes it as the “finest” of its kind. 

Clocking in at $45 per bottle, this blend is one of the most popular. The description alone leaves no question as to why. “The wine opens with notes of dark cherry, blackberry, raspberry, clove, and vanilla. As you let this wine open, notes of cocoa and dark roasted coffee come through. This wine is reminiscent of a luscious berry pie.”

2. Unique Experiences in the Tasting Room

Sipping on wine has never been more fun than at McGrail Vineyards and Winery. The tasting room offers guests radial views of Livermore Valley’s rolling hills. Amid these hills are vines that grow locally-sourced grapes credited with creating award-winning wines. Aside from the exceptional views, the McGrail Vineyards Tasting Room also offers a variety of experiences. 

Please note that a reservation is required for all groups of eight or more.

For a typical tasting, just visit the tasting room Thursday through Sunday from 12:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Tastings are $15 and include one flight. McGrail Vineyards also offers group tastings, seated group and individual tastings, as well as vineyard tours. The most unique experience they offer is on-site bocce ball! Because they don’t offer courtside tastings, we recommend attending a regular tasting, then purchasing a bottle of your favorite to enjoy while you play!
