Wente Family Estates was named "American Winery of the Year" by Wine Enthusiast magazine in 2012. No other winery in California has been continuously family owned and operated as long as Wente Vineyards. Founded in 1883 by C. H. Wente, the winery is now managed by his fourth and fifth generation family members.

The winery farms nearly 3,000 acres of Estate vineyards in premier winegrowing regions in the Tri-Valley Area and the Central Coast. The Wente family is committed to producing wines of distinguished character and excellence at affordable prices.

The tasting room is one of the few in the Valley that is open seven days a week. Winery tours are also available late morning and early afternoon.

Visitors to the tasting room learn about winemaking as well as wine tasting, thanks to a friendly, knowledgeable staff. A Wente tasting experience provides guidance on wine appreciation, along with the opportunity to sample award-winning vintages.

Picnic and gourmet foods are available from the Country Marketplace, to be enjoyed inside or on the shaded patio. A well-appointed gift shop tempts visitors with additional food items, like decadent wine-filled chocolate truffles, and a selection of elegant wine gift items and accessories.
