#957 Wente Bros. Winery
Here the first Wente vineyard of 47 acres was established by C.H. Wente in 1883. In 1935 his sons, Ernest and Herman, introduced California's first varietal wine label, sauvignon blanc. The efforts of the Wente family have helped establish the Livermore Valley as one of the premiere wine-growing areas of California. In their centennial year, Wente Bros. is the oldest continually operating, family-owned winery in California.
