Wente Family Estates in The Food, Drink & Travel Report

Wente Family Estates was named a Livermore Valley standout by "The Food Drink and Travel Report." Check out some of these highlights or you can read the full article here.

"The announcement from Wine Enthusiast Magazine that the 2011 American Winery of the Year award has gone to Wente Family Estates comes as no surprise. Wente, after all, has been a leader in so many aspects of California’s wine history that it’s hard to imagine it without the influence of this family-owned business."

"They recently, for example, partnered with The Food Network on the entwine line of wines--Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon. They’re priced at $12.99, and deliver on their promise of being both enjoyable on their own as well as with food."

"Wente’s wines are as delicious as ever, and at a range of price points."

"Wente’s “Morning Fog” Chardonnay 2009....For fans of the California style of Chardonnay, this one will definitely be a crowd-pleaser."

"The Wente Chardonnay “The Nth Degree” 2009. It boasts a very appealing nose, marked by lemon, lemon curd and oil, a hint of tarragon, and lightly-worn smoky aromas. This is an altogether balanced, gently mouth-watering, and nicely made example of what California Chardonnay can do without breaking the bank."
