Wente Vineyards is the country’s oldest, continuously operated family-owned winery, founded in 1883. Today, the winery maintains its leadership role in California winegrowing under ownership and management by the fourth and fifth generation of the Wente family. Blending traditional and innovative winemaking practices, the winery draws from nearly 3,000 acres of sustainably farmed estate vineyards to create an outstanding portfolio of fine wines. Located just East of San Francisco in the historic Livermore Valley, Wente Vineyards is recognized as one of California’s premier wine country destinations featuring wine tasting, dining, concert performances and championship golf.
A little Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah and Petit Verdot are added to the Wente Sandstone Merlot to give the soft basic character of the Merlot a little more texture and to give it more aromatic tension. It still remains a Merlot, with typical attributes such as gentle tannins and a round finish. The warm days serve the maturity of the grapes and the cool nights in the San Francisco Bay area conducive to flavors. An ideal climate for high-quality red wines.
