135th Anniversary Celebratory Chardonnay Bottle Shot

In honor of our 135th anniversary, we are excited to announce the launch of a special, limited release 135th Anniversary Celebratory Chardonnay. This wine pays homage to the remarkable journey that started in 1883, and continues today. Sourced from our estate vineyards in The Livermore Valley as well as Arroyo Seco, Monterey, our Celebratory Chardonnay has a beautifully inviting bouquet, and notes of apple, tropical fruits and vanilla, with a long, rich finish.

In addition to the Wente Clone of Chardonnay (from which an estimated 80% of all California Chardonnays are derived), the Wente family also introduced the first varietally labeled Chardonnay with a 1936 vintage of Pinot Chardonnay. This retro style package is a tribute to that inaugural Chardonnay, which paved the way for America’s favorite wine varietal.
