My 2nd annual 5 series meet is coming up August 6th at Wente Winery again, so I was hoping to get a raise of hands who here is from the Bay Area/Nor.Cal area and would be interested.

Thanks for looking and please respond,

Hi Keith,

I copied your thread from the main 5-series page to here and to the E60 page so it might appear as a duplicate but I did it on purpose to gain you some visibility to your request.

BTW, I'm in San Jose! :)

Once you get to Vasco Rd. go right (South) and stay on Vasco all the way until it dead-end's at Tesla Rd.
There you will make a right and go about a 1/4 mile to the winery, which will be on your left, I will have something out there to get your attention.


For those that are coming from the Central Valley/North & South of Tracy, the "best" way to get to the winery from there is to take Hwy 5 to Hwy 205/580, when you come down the Altamont into the Livermore Valley, take the Vasco offramp and go over the overpass (South) and stay on Vasco all the way until it dead-end's at Tesla rd.

For those that are coming from the San Mateo area, take the San Mateo Bridge to Hwy 880 North to Hwy 238 East and that will turn into Hwy 580 in Castro Valley

Wente Vineyard's Estate Tasting Room ph# is 925-456-2305 Ext. 4

The address is:

Wente Vineyards
5565 Tesla Rd.
Livermore, CA 94550
website: www.wentevineyards.com

We will be at the Estate Winery location

I will be there earlier to make sure everything is okay and make sure everyone parks in the "side" parking lot.
Beings that the winery will be open for business (other than us) we need to park our cars there.


We will be doing a leisurely drive (for those that are interested) from Livermore to Mt.Hamilton/San Jose after the meet, it's a twisty ride that takes you thru some parts of the Bay Area that some people don't even know exist.
You REALLY need to have a full tank of gas, there are NO gas stations out in the middle of nowhere.
The start of this drive is right there at Stony Ridge.
We'll stop on top of Mt.Hamilton for some photo opps. then continue down the mountain into San Jose and head back down to Hwy 680 (North for some) to wherever your homestead is.

Also, below is the link for the menu at Trio at Stony Ridge, where we will be doing lunch.
Please take a look and think about what you will want to order and when we all gather at Wente you can make your choice there and we will send it to Stony Ridge.

Here's the link: http://www.trioatstonyridge.com/lunchmenu.html



Please email me/Keith for any question's: keller235@comcast.net

I hope to see you ALL there,


Can you please sticky this thread until Aug. 6th?

Thanks,
