Wente new vintages!

2021 Wente Chardonnay Morning Fog....$11.99
Following a good streak of acidity and notes of toasted coconut, banana, lychee, and honeysuckle, flavors of green apple and toasted cinnamon alight on the finish.
Rated 91/100 The Tasting Panel
There's a steely edge to the pear, apple and crisp pineapple aromas on the nose of this bottling. The palate sizzles with acidity and offers a touch of grip, with Key line pie flavors most prevalent.
Rated 90/100 The Wine Enthusiast

2021 Wente Chardonnay Riva Ranch Estate Grown....$17.99
Our Riva Ranch Vineyard Chardonnay is sourced exclusively from our Riva Ranch Vineyard in Arroyo Seco, Monterey. Arroyo Seco, where we have been growing grapes since the 1960s, is widely regarded as one of the best places in California to grow Chardonnay. The long, cool growing season with the deep gravelly soil ripens the Chardonnay perfectly which gives a natural balance of sugar and acidity.
Our 2021 Riva Ranch Chardonnay pairs well with soft cheeses and sourdough bread. Lobster tails with clarified butter, shrimp scampi, and pasta with lemon crème and capers.

2019 Wente Cabernet Sauvignon Southern Hills...$13.99
This energetic, juicy red offers supple tannins and superb acidity, bolstering its dynamic food-pairing abilities. Bright red fruit jumps out of the glass, backed by orange peel and spiced coffee.
Rated 91/100 The Tasting Panel
