“Nice environment good food.”
Reviewed April 10, 2014

Really good place. We had a wine tasting in the Barrel room, and then dinner at the restaurant. The food was really very good. Good service. A very enjoyable evening.

“The Best!”
Reviewed January 29, 2014 via mobile

Some venues are beautiful but the food lousy. Some have great food but terribly inattentive staff. So, when you find a single place with delicious food, wonderfully attentive and accommodating staff, reasonably priced and 2 fabulous venues, it's worthy of a loud shoutout and a high rating.

Such is Wente Vineyards in Livermore, CA, with its Restaurant at Wente Vineyards and Murrietta's Well, a separate but also beautiful venue.

Georgi and Kristan couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating. Planning an important event? - I attended a rehearsal dinner and wedding - these two are the best! I've been barraged by guests' e-mails, texts and postings raving about the weekend, particularly the rehearsal dinner at the Restaurant and the wedding reception at beautiful Murrietta's Well.

Looking for a great place for a great party, Wente's the place, Georgi and Kristan the people!

“A fine local winery, but more commercial than some”
Reviewed December 1, 2013

We've always enjoyed visiting the Wente location on Tesla Rd. (they have another location). Their wines are entertaining and staff appear knowledgeable. The Tesla Rd. location is closing the Thomas (Italian) tasting room, while retaining the french varietals tasting room. Though we've always enjoyed Thomas, we learned, on this visit, it's being converted into a tasting/pairing "school" for visitors such as you and I. Don't know what it will be like, but we're anxious to give it a try on our next visit to the Bay area. Incidentally we frequently stay our in Livermore and take BART to SF for various events of interest to us. It's quite convenient.

We went to Wente for a wedding and the food was fantastic. We had grilled chicken and a pork chop. Very delicious.

“Good wine , Beautiful setting”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

The tasting room near the restaurant is really fun, indoors or out. Bonus : the restaurant at the winery is great, really tasty food. Do not miss the pork chops! Also for a more casual meal a walk over to the golf course , sit outside at the grill for a really good meal also. Less pricey. The grounds are so beautiful, take a walk, relax, and enjoy good eats and wine. One stop does it all.
