The idea for 3 Steves…
…was born over 3 friends sitting around having a glass of wine and talking about starting our own winery. We all owned part of a small boutique winery where we learned the art, science, and business aspects of the wine industry. We made a lot of wine together, and our customers gave us some great feedback. Before long we realized we wanted to start our own label from the ground up, and though it was obvious to name our new project the 3 Steves Winery.
We received our license in early 2010. For several years we made our wine in a custom-crush facility which worked well, but we had a dream of owning our own winery and vineyard one day. Then in late 2012, we found the ideal location, and in July of 2013, we opened our doors for the first time at 5700 Greenville Road in Livermore! The location has beautiful 360-degree vistas of the entire Livermore valley, and we are surrounded by incredible wineries on Greenville Road. A must-stop when out wine tasting.
Our philosophy is to grow the best grapes we can on our vineyard and to purchase the grapes we don’t grow, from Livermore and other regions where particular varietals grow best. Then we bring the fruit back to our winery and turn it into wine. We have established strong relationships with award-winning vineyards, which will allow us to obtain excellent fruit as we continue refining our wine-making skills as humble students of the art. Our tag line is “3 Friends Striving To Make The Perfect Wine”, and we’ll continue to do just that in hopes you will enjoy our wines and perceive value in your purchase of our product.
We’re proud of our wines and the awards we’ve won, and plan to be here for years to come. Livermore is an incredible wine region. The other winemakers have been so helpful and extended their hands, experience, and resources to us. In this type of wine community, you can’t help but make quality wine.
Our wine is currently sold at our winery at 5700 Greenville Road in Livermore, and at a few local restaurants and wine shops. To order wine to be shipped click here.
