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.

Wente has long been the big dog in the Livermore Valley and has built a nice facility that's worth a visit. Unfortunately, sometimes there is an inverse relationship between the grandeur of a facility and the quality/price/value of its wine. Prices were very high for average wine of which they seemed inordinately proud. If you're just looking for good wine... More

My boyfriend and I visited a friend in Livermore and this was the first stop after getting off the plane. Went to lunch at the restaurant at the vineyards golf course. We sat outside and ordered lunch. Food was great except that we found two bugs in two different cups. We asked for new water and continued with our lunch.... More

Wente is tucked away beside some hills and a golf course and offers excellent wine tasting. The tasting room was very busy and it appears to be a popular spot, not only for tourists in the area, but for locals also. The servers were knowledgeable about the white wines which I sampled and each one was delicious.

The tasting rooms are really nice and the restaurant is really good. I like the Wente Vineyards Estate Winery because the workers are really knowledgable and there is a small staff and they are not pushy!

This wonderful restaurant is tucked in the hills of the vineyard and golf course. Try the Wente Riva Ranch, it is a wonderful wine!
