Wine Today is aimed at providing something new each day, whether it be industry news, a wine tasting review or highlighting a winery, our goal is to bring value to our readers with content from around the industry.

Our belief is that wine is the gateway to happiness, and it should be utilized at any and every occasion—therefore, no wine snobs allowed!!! Kidding of course!

Our goal is to bring wine lovers together and create an opportunity for people to come together, share information, discuss tastings and learn from both experience and interactions. Equally as important, we wish to highlight wine makers, wineries and people within the industry because like wine, they also have a story to tell.

Being located in the San Francisco Bay Area, a majority of our content will focus on wine located within an hour of the greater Bay Area which includes:

  • Callistoga
  • Contra Costa County
  • Livermore
  • Lodi
  • Napa
  • Solano
  • Sonoma

This site will also from time to time feature information on beer as well as spirits. We will try anything and would love to give people in the wine industry exposure and showcase their hard work through highlighting their products.
