The City of Livermore Council has adopted Resolution No. 2021-198 on Nov. 22, 2021, establishing the Livermore Valley Wine Heritage District (LVWHD) with a five-year term beginning July 1, 2021, and ending June 30, 2026. The LVWHD is an assessment district which includes all wineries existing and in the future, within the boundaries of portions of the County of Alameda and the City of Livermore, as shown on the map. The term “winery” means: A business that is commercial growing and/or processing of wine grapes; and/or must have a valid state license and/or federal permit to process or sell wine at retail locations within the boundaries of the LVWHD.

The boundary, as shown in the map above, includes the forty-six (46) wineries (Appendix 2 in MDP updated on 12-16-21)

Beginning Jan 1, 2022, each winery located within the Livermore Valley Wine Heritage District will be responsible for reporting their Gross Sales Revenue quarterly with the first quarter reporting due April 1, 2022. The assessment rate is two percent of the gross direct to consumer sales revenues on winery sales.

The assessments collected will be applied to marketing and education efforts to increase winery sales revenue, and other improvements and activities for the assessed wineries in Livermore Valley.
