It’s an exciting time of year that we select a local artist to be featured on our Artist Series wine collection. Following our recent partners, @artbyjoeltesch and @lisaelley, we are seeking someone that can parlay their art to our wine, making it the perfect pairing for our four wines: GSM, Serenity, Sonata and Duetti.

Thank you to all who were able to tune in to our LIVE TOAST today ✨ In honor of America’s favorite varietal, Chardonnay. Cheers! If you missed it and would like to view, check out our story or our Facebook page. #NationalChardonnayDay #2019
It’s #NationalChardonnayDay TODAY! We’re so proud to be California’s First Family of Chardonnay, honored for our devotion to propagating this delicious varietal forward by integrating cuttings from France and the Gier vineyard in Pleasanton. Did you know that today, over 75% or all California Chardonnay stems from that Wente clone developed in 1912?
Now that’s what we call a line up. Who’s ready for #nationalchardonnayday tomorrow? Which wine will you be raising a glass with? 📸 @dezel_q
Time to get your favorite wine set aside and ready to be chilled, #NationalChardonnayDay is this Thursday, 5/23! Celebrate Chardonnay with us and tune in for a LIVE toast with 5th generation winegrowers, Jordan and Niki HERE at 3pm PST/6pm EST Thursday. See you there!
Recently awarded 91 points by @james.suckling our 2017 Morning Fog Chardonnay is the perfect representation of a Livermore Valley Chardonnay, bright and crisp, beautifully balanced with oak. Enjoy! #awardwinning #livermorevalley #chardonnay #estategrown #familyowned #certifiedsustainable
The most whimsical aisle 🌹We are here to book the most memorable day for you. #wenteweddings
A look inside Diane’s greenhouse. Did you know? Everything that goes into the garden, starts here. #organic #sustainablefarming #farmtotable
Yesterday our employees enjoyed a “Plant the Seed: Garden Experience” hosted by Diane & Jillian in our 1/2 acre organic garden! We learned about edible flowers, planted our own seeds to take home and enjoyed some delicious chocolate cupcakes topped with edible flowers by our pastry team! #MakeTime #TheGarden #PlantTheSeed
Boots in the vineyard during golden hour ✨there’s nothing like it. #LivermoreValley 📸 @niki_wente
We’ve been fostering the growth of Chardonnay in the Livermore Valley since 1912. 2nd generation Ernest Wente brought over cuttings from France and propagated those vines to cultivate what is now known as the ‘Wente clone’. Today we offer a variety of Chardonnay’s. What’s your favorite?
We are so excited to share our partnership for the 2017 Artist Series collection 🍷🎨 @lisaelley is an award-winning, local Bay Area Artist and we are honored to feature her palette knife work on our upcoming labels! Starting with GSM, Lisa features the rolling hills of the Livermore Valley, vines, bright sunflowers and California wildflowers. Lisa will be joining us for our Club release parties, be sure to say hello! Swipe right to see a close-up of the full piece.
Swipe ➡️ to preview our latest Chardonnay release! 2018 Eric’s Chardonnay, named after 4th generation winegrower and father to Karl & Christine, this 100% stainless steel fermented Chardonnay is the purest expression of our Livermore Valley Chardonnay. Lean minerality and a lingering acidity makes it an excellent seafood pairing or even a bright citrus salad. Perfect for Spring. Cheers!
Cheers to #InternationalWomensDay 🥂We are highlighting a few of our fabulous female leaders across our organization today: Carolyn Wente serves as our current CEO and is a 4th Generation Winegrower. Her nieces, Christine, Jordan and Niki Wente are all 5th Generation Winegrowers and serve in leadership roles across Wente Foundation for Arts Education, Procurement Operations and Viticulture, respectively. Finally, Amy Hoopes serves as our current President of Wente Family Estates. We are so proud to represent female leadership in the wine and spirits industry!
It’s National Day of Unplugging📱It’s so easy to get lost on any social media device or computer each day. Today, acknowledge that and #maketime to put your device down (we will too!) and enjoy what’s in front of you. Here are some of our very own Viticulturists spending time with their dogs on our company walk. #nationaldayofunplugging
We are extremely proud of our female leaders across management, tasting rooms, hospitality, winemaking and more. We will be raising a glass to all women on Friday, March 8 in honor of #InternationalWomensDay 🍷In the mean time, Carolyn, Jordan and Niki Wente all wish you a wonderful weekend ahead. Cheers!
Today we had our first #MakeTime mixer, which was focused around wellness and taking a break during the lunch hour. We had employees from across our organization take a break and walk two miles around our local Sycamore Grove park in Livermore. The weather was crisp and the rain broke just in time for us! What will you #maketime for this week?
It might be a holiday for most, but The Garden must be tended to 24-7 by our Master Gardener, Diane. Come by and take a peek at the 1/2 acre organic garden by requesting a tour by your friendly ambassador. Who knows, you might get to meet Diane yourself!
We’re spotlighting love today ♥️ Last month, 5th generation winegrower Jordan Wente and her husband Julian celebrated their 10 year wedding anniversary amongst close family and friends in Livermore. Who are you sharing the love with today?
Our Artist Series Duetto is the final release of the fantastic 2016 vintage. Crafted by local artist @artbyjoeltesch this 4-piece series was his interpretation of ‘vine to glass’. Click our link in bio to learn more about Joel and to view the entire series, available now!
What an incredible wine release weekend. We always enjoy sharing our latest wines with Club Members 💕 What did you think of your February shipment?
Puppies & Rosé 💕 Can you think of a more perfect pair?
#ThrowBack to Chef’s Apple Cake dessert served at the Vineyard Table. Have you experienced yet? What was your favorite pairing?
Did you know... we also have nth Degree Merlot? Our 2016 vintage is sourced from our Sachau and Home vineyards here in the Livermore Valley. Since they both continue to perform well each year, these grapes make it into our very special nth Degree wine crafted by Karl. Cheers!
Rain, rain, go away. We want to drink more rosé by the Wente caves today🍷
It’s always an honor to host you. Come escape to our Tasting Rooms and try our latest releases while making time for friends and family.
Coming Soon: Niki’s Rosé will join our Small Lot collection February 2nd. Named after fifth-generation Winegrower and Viticulturist, Niki Wente, this Rosé of Pinot Noir is a beautiful expression of our Arroyo Seco estate vineyards and Niki’s passion for the varietal. We cannot wait to share this vibrant wine with you!
We’re extremely excited to share a sneak peak of Niki’s Rosé, releasing February. This Small Lot Rosé of Pinot Noir is named after 5th generation Winegrower and Viticulturist, Niki Wente because of her passion for the varietal and 8 clonal selections we farm in Arroyo Seco, Monterey. Stay tuned for the rosé reveal, coming soon!
Always a treat to see your barrels off to their second home.
As 2018 comes to a close, I wanted to take a moment to reflect back and be thankful for one of the biggest and best vintages we’ve ever had! I am incredibly grateful the team remained safe all the way through the long season, as we were picking grapes until mid-November and fermenting into December. A big thank you to everyone who works each day on this amazing journey with us. And last, but most important, a thank you goes out to all of you. Thank you for enjoying our wine and being a part of our wine country experiences. For now though, I am very excited that our California mountain ranges already have a solid snowpack and I’m looking forward to telemark skiing in these early wintery months. Cheers to a New Year, Karl D. Wente, 5th Generation Winegrower
This month with funding provided by Wente Vineyards, the Wente Foundation for Arts Education is giving back a total of $15,000 to 30 schools across America to support classrooms and supply children with art supplies in 2019. This donation stems from our Make Time to Give Back holiday program, funding schools to allow children to continue to build their creativity 🎨 @wentefoundation
The holidays are a time to give, a time to laugh and a time to live. Celebrate with the ones you love most and remember all that you are thankful and grateful for. We’re thankful for those that celebrate with us, from our family to yours. Happy holidays 🥂
Who had a chance to enjoy our 135th Limited-Release Chardonnay this year? A nod to our 1936 label in honor of our 135th anniversary in 2018. We have much to be grateful for, especially as we share a taste of our estate with you. Cheers.
It might have been a rainy afternoon in our valley today, but we’re thankful that it brings bountiful vine canopies come spring.
