"A limited number of attendees will enjoy personalized instruction as well as the ability to enhance their knowledge of California wines, in general, and wines from the up-and-coming Livermore appellation, in particular."

In addition to the two highlighted golf venues, co-sponsors of the program include The Rose Hotel, Tenuta Vineyards, a family-run boutique winery that will host the program's winemaker dinner, and Wente Vineyards, one of the Livermore Valley's marquee wine producers.
