Forget Napa Valley for your next wine tasting tour, because we have something easier. East Bay locals can explore an award-winning wine country much closer to home – in Alameda and Contra Costa counties, where the reds, whites and rosés are ripe for sipping.
Some East Bay wineries, like in the Livermore Valley, are historic and lush with mature vines. Others are uniquely urban and located just blocks from BART and Jack London Square. (As Sunset magazine recently pointed out about East Bay wine tasting: “California’s newest wine country leaves the ‘country’ behind.”)
Hop on the Livermore Wine Trolley or walk the Oakland Urban Wine Trail. Or hit one of the East Bay's many wine and food festivals, like the annual Taste Our Terroir, Livermore Valley’s annual quest for food and wine pairing excellence. Tickets for July 26-29, 2018, are available at www.lvwine.org.
This is a perfect time to test the grea ...

Abio Cares, the public service arm of Abio Properties that is committed to supporting our East Bay community, is thrilled to announce the launch of “Take Me Home Tuesdays.”
Each Tuesday, Abio Cares will shine a spotlight on a wonderful rescue dog or cat who needs a forever home.
Photos, fun facts, and adoption details about these sweet pups and kitties will be featured on Abio’s Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter accounts and on our new Abio Cares webpage.
“We like to say we find homes for more than just people,” says Abio co-founder Linnette Edwards. “And we are perfectly positioned to help these animals because we can leverage our social media channels to get the word out to a lot of people.”
Abio Cares is partnering with the award-winning East Bay animal rescue organization, ARF, founded by Baseball Hall of Famer Tony La Russa. Headquartered in Walnut ...

Please join Abio Cares on Sept. 25 between 8:30-11:30 a.m. at the Alameda County Community Food Bank as we give back to the community we all love.
With one in five of our neighbors lacking food basics, we support the Alameda County Community Food Bank’s (ACCBF) mission to fight hunger locally -- from Berkeley to Fremont, from Oakland to Livermore.
In just three easy hours on Sept. 25, we will help sort and package food headed to 200 food pantries, soup kitchens, senior centers, school meal programs and other community organizations. The ACCFB creates nearly 600,000 meals worth of food every week!
Why does Abio care? To keep up with demand, the food bank needs 75 volunteers per shift. The biggest need is for weekday help, so we want to do our part. No one should worry about where his or her next meal will come from.
The Abio Cares team includes Abio Properties agent Sarka Sarkisian, who said this will be her second volunteer trip to the ACC ...
