My uncle's celebration of life was at Wente years ago and I was unable to bring my wife to the event. We returned for lunch and wine tasting. We were not disappointed. Elegant meal, a bit pricy, but you pay for quality. Serene setting. The wine tasting was okay until we just started asking questions. The staff opened up and... More

Some very good wines & so so-so ones. Red is the best bet. The Spur, and the reserves are pricey but good Whites not worth it. Great locale with friendly reminder staff. Not cheap though.

As part of our business meeting, we held an event at the winery. The tour and tastings were enjoyable. The dinner was well spaced out and executed. A scallop appetizer was a nice light beginning to the meal. The salad was fresh and plentiful. And the pasta entree was done perfectly. Dessert might have been our least favorite. There was... More

For the ones that honor family traditions and legacy, this is an extraordinary place to tour. The history behind this vineyard could be as long as the history of Livermore. If not, they still step in and expedite other neighboring wineries for the bottling and sale of their wines. TRULY FAMILY in many senses of the word. The info was... More

Beautiful area with lots of wineries. The Nth degree collection is delicious, pricey, but very good. Try the Brut Champagne, has a nice amount of bubbles to finish off your tasting. The caterers that Wente uses is very inventive and has great food. While my preference are the reds, I also enjoy their whites as well Family seems to favor... More

The wine was good, but we came to the Livermore area for the more casual wineries (the area recommended as more casual than Napa), so this was not what we were looking for. You are not permitted to bring picnic food - just not what we wanted.

Wente is a beautiful winery, as are so many of the wineries in Livermore. There are actually 2 sites that you can taste Wente wines at. There is the newer tasting room that is more spacious, and there is the smaller, old tasting room by the golf course/restaurant. We went to the smaller one. The inside tasting room is tight,...

Beautiful grounds and excellent food and catering service. The service was held in an old building, kind of like an old church, but dinner was served out in an amphitheater like enclosed lawn. Not an opulent setting but very laid back and classy.

This winery is very pretty. It has a tasting room, but several patio areas as well. There are special things to do here such as wine maker for a day. There is also a summer music concert list. Great place to enjoy a relaxing summer afternoon.
