To avoid the Mother’s Day crowds, my sister and I decided to treat mom to wine tasting in Livermore Valley the day before. We started our trip at McGrail Vineyards where my sister is a wine club member. She had a club shipment to pick up, so she was able to kill two birds with one stone. The weather was warming up, so we headed outside for the shaded patio on the north side of the winery building and were able to secure a table large enough for our little group. The McGrail winery sits about 75 feet above the Livermore Valley floor and is just high enough to give a commanding view of the surrounding area. We brought along some light picnic fare to enjoy with our wine flights.
