Holiday Events at Wente Vineyards

With fall in full swing and the holidays just around the corner, things are starting to feel downright festive here at Wente Vineyards. We hope that you make time to join us at the Wente Vineyards Tasting Lounge for a wine-tasting or culinary experience to unwind from all the hustle and bustle of the season. Or join us at one of the many events we have planned for the next two months.

The post-harvest season in Livermore Valley marks our favorite time of year – the hardest work is done, and we can (quite literally!) enjoy the fruits of our labor, celebrating around the table with friends and family. The vines are entering their winter slumber, their grapes now quietly doing their magic in the cellar, while The San Francisco Bay brings cooling winds that have us reaching for our most treasured bottles of red.

Located just east of San Francisco, we’re in the heart of one of the most accessible wine countries to visit – anywhere! So, whether you are entertaining out-of-town guests, tasting through your holiday wine menu, or just needing an escape from the endless seasonal to-do list, we hope to see you at Wente Vineyards Tasting Lounge this fall.

Below are four ways to savor the fall season with Wente Vineyards:


Wente Vineyards Winemaker’s Dinner November 12th

What better way to kick off the holiday season than with a perfectly paired wine dinner?

Join us for our Wente Vineyards Winemaker’s Dinner on Saturday, November 12th at 6 pm, where our talented winemaker, Alec Frasher, will showcase our wines alongside a thoughtfully paired, multi-course tasting menu.

Accompanied by live music, each decadent course has been imagined to highlight the complex flavors behind each wine note-for-note, making this the ultimate dinner for connoisseurs and enthusiasts alike. Price per person is $185, and club members will receive a 15% discount. We hope to see you there!

Reserve your spot here.


NEW Menus for Reserve and Classic Tasting Experience

With the change of seasons, we look forward to featuring the fall bounty. With beautiful pairings of wine and food, Chef Tony has created dishes perfect for the cooler weather. Our new menus will debut on November 11th. Reserve and Classic Tasting Experiences are available from Friday to Sunday and require advance reservations.

Book your tasting today on Cellar Pass.


Family Day – Holiday in the Vineyards

Finally…A winery event that’s fun for the whole family!

Join us on Saturday, December 3rd, and Sunday, December 4th, for Family Day: Holiday in the Vineyards. From 12 pm-4 pm, wine country visitors of all ages – even those under the age of 21 – are welcome to Wente Vineyards for a rare opportunity to explore our historic barrel room, transformed and reimagined as a holiday wonderland.

A special festive menu created by Chef Tony will be on offer, alongside food trucks, live music, a holiday market featuring local vendors for holiday gifting, and a rare appearance from Santa himself. Entrance to the event is complimentary, with food and wine for purchase.

If you’ve ever experienced the inventive food pairings offered at our Wente Vineyards Tasting Lounge, you won’t miss this special dinner event.

We can’t think of a more perfect insider’s experience to share just ahead of the holidays. Price per person is $150, and club members will receive a 15% discount. So join us for an unforgettable evening of farm-fresh wine country cuisine paired perfectly with our most memorable wines.
