The Wente family is widely known as the First Chardonnay Family in California. In 1912, second generation winemaker Ernest Wente convinced his father and founder, C.H. A Wente, to import Chardonnay stakes from the University of Montpellier in France to the Livermore Valley. Today, about 75% of all Chardonnay chips from California are obtained from the Wente clone. The 5th generation winemaker Carl D. Vente continues the legacy of the Chardonnay family with four different wine styles.
Wente Vineyards is the oldest family winery in constant operation, founded in 1883. Today the winery maintains its leading role in Californian viticulture under the authority and management of the fourth and fifth generations of the Wente family. Combining traditional and innovative winemaking practices, the winery uses nearly 3,000 hectares of certified vineyards grown on sustainable land to create an excellent portfolio of wines grown on the property. Situated east of San Francisco in the historic Livermore Valley, Wente Vineyards is recognized as one of California’s premier wine tasting destinations, a Wente Vineyards restaurant, summer concerts and a golf course designed by Greg Norman.
Combining traditional and innovative winemaking techniques, the winery uses certified sustainable vineyards in the Livermore Valley and Arroyo Seco, Monterey Apellains, to create an excellent portfolio of fine wines. With an east-west orientation, the Livermore Valley has an ideal climate for viticulture; warm days and cool nights influenced by fogs or breezes from the Pacific Ocean and San Francisco Bay. The name Arroyo Seco has one of the longest growing seasons in California, allowing the grapes to maintain their natural acidity and intense varietal character. Arroyo Seco’s slightly cool coastal climate and distinctive gravel soils help to produce beautiful balanced wines.
