Livermore, CA: The Purple Orchid

Right off the 580 Freeway, near the end of the Mt DiabloSummit Run, is a beautiful wine country in Livermore, CA. There you will find Concannon Vineyard celebrating their 130th Anniversary of making award winning wines.  Come and enjoy their newly-renovated tasting room and historic winery. Taste some of the most delicious and elegant wines in California during a guided private tour of the winery, barrel room and historic vineyards. Their wine bar patio offers a global cuisine in a casual ambiance overlooking the vines.

If you prefer the taste of hops over grapes, you can visit Eight Bridges Brewing also in Livermore. The tasting room is there for you to enjoy their beers, tour the brewery, meet the brewer and even take beer home for later. From time to time they hold special events and have special beer releases that will be available only in the tasting room. Eight Bridges Brewing focuses on providing both your favorite brews and a variety that will keep you coming back for more.

After a long day of riding and drinking, you will want to rest at The Purple Orchid. They have ten modern country suites complete with fireplaces and private Jacuzzi tubs, with breakfast the next morning included. Take a walk through the beautiful rose garden or socialize with others in the common areas with wine and cheese. Their spa has a large selection of services to help relax your body and mind.
