Bent Creek Winery is nestled in the rolling hills southeast of Livermore. With the backdrop of an oak-dotted ridge and surrounded by vineyards, the winery commands spectacular views of the valley. Bent Creek is dedicated to making fine wines from the grapes of Livermore Valley vineyards. We offer a variety of prize winning red wines, white wines and ports. Visitors are invited to enjoy quality, handcrafted wines in a serene setting that seems miles away from the pressures of civilization. Tasting room hours are Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 12 to 4:30 PM, and other times by appointment. – Description from Nerevar
