The Restaurant

The Restaurant at Wente Vineyards embraces an estate-grown, sustainable, and family-owned business model.  Since 1986, it has delivered simply prepared dishes crafted to evoke creative flavors by using sustainably and organically grown local ingredients. The seasonal menu changes daily, utilizing produce from The Restaurant’s organic garden.  From the abundance of fresh produce provided by the Estate Garden to the unique Estate Beef program, Estate olive oil and Estate-grown wines, the menu will continue to balance flavors and complement the many components of Wente Family Estates.  Service is warm and inviting, and guests have a view of the vineyards through the French windows of the historic Cresta Blanca building.

Wente Vineyards Restaurant Accolades

“When the fourth generation of the Wente family turned to restauranting, some offered prayers for their deliverance, but some knew the family’s drive for perfection would win out ... and it has. The place is stunningly beautiful, comfortable, worth a special trip!"
