A Family Wine Affair at Livermore Valley’s Omega Road Winery, Ep. 76

Here at Sip Sip Hooray! we are all about making wine approachable, sharing peeks behind the label of some of your favorite wines and helping you discover some new wines.

For this episode the Marys are in Livermore Valley at Omega Road Winery. This is a winery and story we want you to know. Today we’ve got a show about a daughter father duo who are making wine together as Omega Road Winery in California’s Livermore Valley. And with the name like Omega, they may just wind up being the end all in wine. It’s a family affair, as mom and the family dog are also involved! We are excited to introduce you to Alexandra Henkelman. She is Alex to her friends and we’re sure she will feel like a friend by the end of this podcast.

Alex is an active member in Livermore’s wine community, supporting a growing cadre of women working in wine in the valley as a member of the Women’s Wine Collective of Livermore Valley. Alex and her family just debuted their newly expanded tasting room, a beautiful and hip, cool place to hang out. It is exciting to see how the family has not only grown but thrived with the Omega Road label. We are thrilled to be here in the tasting room with Alex and her dog – and winery mascot – Millie.
