Wente Vineyards is a family-owned winery located in Livermore Valley, a few hours drive from Sonoma Valley. We visited in the fall, and have some beautiful pictures of the winery.
Our visit to Wente Estate Winery & Tasting Room
Wente has two tasting locations in Livermore Valley. We stayed on the vineyard. First, we went to the restaurant and explored the area. The vineyard includes a gorgeous golf course, club house, and large restaurant. The next day, we visited the Estate Winery & Tasting Room. This location has a gorgeous garden and tasting room. We loved the live music and lively atmosphere!
Here a few recommendations of Wente wines to try you can find in your local grocery store!
