Browse by Winemaker - Karl D. Wente
Fifth generation winegrower Karl D. Wente represents a new breed of winemaker. Well versed in the chemistry and biology of winemaking and vineyard management, he maintains the traditional hands-on approach of previous generations of Wente family winemakers. "Successful winemaking remains a blend of insight and experience," says Karl. "Consequently, there's no substitute for time spent in the vineyards and winery." Karl grew up working at Wente Vineyards and he chose to gain experience at other wineries, starting with The Peter Michael Winery in Sonoma. That was followed by a stint at Brown Brothers winery in northern Victoria, Australia, where Karl gained southern hemisphere experience before returning home to Wente Vineyards in Summer 2002.
