Wente Vineyards

Wente Vineyards is located at 5050 Arroyo Road in Livermore, California

In 1981, the Wente family purchased the long abandoned Cresta Blanca winery site. Few views are as breathtaking in Livermore, and with a lot of hard work and determination the winery began to reclaim its former elegance.

The grounds were replanted with vineyards at the foot of the hillsides, adding even more beauty to the natural surroundings. Most exciting was restoration of the sandstone caves, which once again provide ideal resting quarters for sparkling wines as they age and mature.

When the renovation was complete, the Wente Vineyards Event Center quickly established itself as a popular site for weddings, receptions, banquets, conferences, private parties, and other celebrations. In addition to the tasting room, the site also features the award-winning Restaurant at Wente Vineyards, a championship golf course, and the famous summer concert series.

Past concert series artists include The Beach Boys, Tony Bennett, Harry Connick, Jr., Sheryl Crow, Earth, Wind & Fire, John Fogerty, Chris Isaak, Diana Krall, Steve Martin, Willie Nelson, Brad Paisley, Diana Ross, Train, Ringo Starr, James Taylor, Frankie Valli, Wynonna, and many more.
