Jim Denham first showed up at the rustic, hole-in-the-wall Livermore Valley Cellars in 1988, when he knew little about wine. Now he’s the manager and wine buyer at the Wine Steward in Pleasanton and has vines growing in his own backyard.
Denham hopes to see the general wine scene in Livermore change and move away from what he calls the “McVarietals” like Cabernet and Merlot, and experiment with Mediterranean grapes such as Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre.
