Musical Chairs In The Livermore Valley Wine Country

I'll start with Thomas Coyne Winery.  They completed their move to their new location at 2405 Research Dr., Livermore, CA in October of 2013.  It was unfortunate how this happened as the property owner sold the former location and was not nice about telling Coyne he had to move.

Eckert Estate Winery moved from Arroyo Rd to 5963 Graham Court, Suite D, Livermore, CA.  The former location on Arroyo Rd., has a new owner. The new owner was willing to make upgrades and

in doing so gave way to a new location for Cuda Ridge Winery.
3 Steve's Winery offer for the White Crane Winery was not accepted by the bank.   However they purchased the old Red Feather location and have made a real nice home for themselves.  They moved out of the Swirl location recently.   It does not appear that Red Feather winery has new location at this time.

Looks like White Crane is still hanging on some how. 

Cedar Mountain Winery has moved and is going back to their original plan to make wine for themselves and no longer doing custom crushing.  They have broken ground on their new facility with hopes to be open to the public by harvest of this year. 
With Cedar Mountain's move, that gave way for a new location for Darcy Kent Vineyards.

A new Winery has opened in the Livermore Valley.  Caddis Winery opened in December of 2013 and is using Triska's property for production and their tasting room by appointment only. 
Mitchell Katz Winery parted ways with Mike Callahan and moved to 2481 Buena Vista Ave. Livermore, CA.  

Callahan moved another one of his wineries into the old Katz location. You can visit Rubino Estates Winery.   at the old Katz location.

A new winery will be opening this May.  Nella Terra  produces Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier and Chardonnay. 

Another notable new winery in 
 Livermore Valley is Enoteca Five. They produce Cabernet Franc and Merlot blends.  They share space at  633 Kalthoff Common, Livemore, CA.  You can find out where to taste their wines on their Website. 

One more very new winery. It's by appointment only. Twining Vines  located at 16851 Cull Canyon Road, Castro Valley, CA. Keith Seibert, owner and caretaker of ten acres at Twining Vine, does not have a tasting room.  He does have a very large Red Barn on the property.  Twining Vine Winery will be producing Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese, Zinfandel, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. They were approved to open for 12 events a year by the Castro Valley Municipal Advisory Council December 2013.  Not much to see on their Website at this time. http://twiningvine.com

Something new for one of the wineries.  Eckert Estates Winery as delved into the distilled spirits industry. Mike just opened Artisan Spirits and Brandy Works. They are collocated with the winery at 5963 Graham Court, Suite D, Livermore, CA. You can like them on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/ArtisanSpiritsandBrandyWorks
