“Wente's Italian Division”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

Tamas Estates is now owned by Wente and is a part of Wente's largest tasting room complex, in a separate building from Wente’s large Vineyards Estate Tasting Room, and adjacent to the winery. Tamas Estates features Italian varietals. Tamas Estates was originally a venture by Ivan Tamas Feuszy and Steve Mirassou called Ivan Tamas Wines. Ivan is no longer with us; Wente bought the brand, and Steve's son Steven operates Steven Kent Winery, close by.

Tamas Estates now makes several Italian varietals, all quite good and fairly priced. I prefer them to the basic Wente fare. The Tamas tasting room personnel are friendly and engaged with their guests. They sell a few wine-related doo-dads there, as well.

There is a huge parking lot, lawn/picnic areas, and table seating to enjoy your wine adjacent to the Wente Vineyards Estate Tasting Room if you prefer. This complex is definitely Wente’s most corporate tasting room experience. You can schedule private parties, weddings, etc. Family friendly, so it can get a bit frenetic. With the Wente Vineyards Estate Tasting Room right there, between the two and the outside areas, you can easily spend a very pleasant day.
