Great Venue for Concerts

Yes, a great venue for concerts, circus acts, or just lying around on the wide and spacious lawn. We were there for a wine tasting at about 11.30a on a Saturday in August. The wine tasting room easily would hold several hundred people and it seemed as if they were all there: loud and crowded. Someone said they'd get us... More

We just saw Lyle Lovett and ate at the Wente restaurant. The concert venue was fantastic. It is a little pricey, but it is well worth it. The sound was excellent, there is lots of wine available to purchase and they have a buffet to dine at....if you choose to eat outside. You can go inside to eat, but it... More

We stayed in Yosemite for a few days, and wanted to visit at least one winery before returning home. We asked our B&B host if we could only pick one where should we go, and this is the place he recommended; he was spot on. The staff were very friendly and interested in where we were from, what brought us... More

Such a beautiful location. My friends and I went there for a girls night out to celebrate our birthdays! We ate in the restaurant but you don't have to you can just go to wine taste too. The food is delicious but on the higher end of the price range. But for a special occasion it's fine.

I don't drink, but my wife and nieces all enjoy a glass of fine wine occasionally. One of my nieces had her wedding reception here. We went in for a tasting on a weekday when it wasn't too busy. They all had several samples. The older gentleman serving them took special interest in our group and gave us a private... More

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
