We joined a group of friends for a recent tasting at Fenestra. We really enjoyed ourselves for a few reasons - first and foremost, the tasting was $10 for 10 wines - excellent value, and allowed us to peruse the wines we were curious about. You also get $5 off your tasting with a purchase, which is an added bonus.... More

Nice location with Livermore charm, some good wines are offered in the tastings some not as good. If you are not a member of the wine club you will have to skip some of the wines in tasting assembly line. Friendly people with a few knowledgeable members that are great to talk to.

The wines are OK - we did the $5 tasting for the "lesser" wines, but we've tasted better wines cheaper elsewhere. The tasting experience seemed like a production line, and while the staff shared their insights, rarely was it all that helpful. Most of their comments were about how great the wine that we trying should really taste to us.... More

The tasting room is in a funky, no frills building. Once inside, it gets very regimented. You line up to pay--5.00 for about ten wines, and $10.00 for five or six of what they consider their better wines. I took the $5.00 tasting and skipped the whites. The arrangement is three tables in a U-shape and you proceed from one... More

We love Fenestra! The location has a laid back comfy vibe. The people working there are always very informative. The selection is wonderful. The wines always end up being Christmas gift cause we love it so much we have to share it. Definitely a good place to stop off on your wine tour or date night.

I have been in the Fenestra Fanatic wine club for close to 20 years now. We just visited the winery last week and did a tasting. WOW there were SO many wines to taste! It isn't a fancy place and when you go into the tasting room you almost feel like you made a wrong turn but their wines are... More

Fenestra was our first stop for an afternoon of wine tasting. For $10 there were 10 tastings. Some were blends I had never tasted before, such as Malbec (Platinum medal winner and very good). The woman pouring was very informative and friendly and we were never rushed. Fun place in a casual atmosphere.

This was the first winery we visited and we had a lot of fun! We each picked a different flight (10 wines each) of wines (one $5 and the other $10 which they took $5 of that off our purchase. ) We started on one side of the room then went to the other and back again. We visited with... More

Way too many wines, and not enough attention to perfecting a few great wines. Staff is very uptight!
