The 2007 Concerts at Wente Vineyards

For more than 20 years, The Concerts at Wente Vineyards has showcased world-renowned entertainers in the winery’s scenic amphitheater. Fine wine and food, complemented by gracious, personal service, are the hallmarks of the Wente Vineyards concert experience. Each summer, concerts are held at the beautiful Wente Vineyards Restaurant and Event Center, located in a picturesque valley a few miles south of the town of Livermore.
