About

WELCOME TO THE WINEMAKERS STUDIO AT WENTE VINEYARDS

Since 1883, our family has been dedicated to the art of winemaking and to the philosophy that the quality of a wine originates in the vineyard.

 

Maintaining family tradition is essential to Wente Vineyards, but just as important are constant innovation and a drive to raise the bar higher at every opportunity.

 

The Winemakers Studio is a place where we invite you, our guests, to engage in hands-on, interactive, FUN, and educational winemaking and grape-growing activities.

 

The studio is seasonally inspired and will change as often as the vines growing in the vineyards. So, what you come see and experience one month will be completely different the next.

 

We look forward to enjoying everything wine with you.

 

Cheers!

— The Wente Family
