Wente Vineyards is California’s oldest family owned and continuously operated winery. Founded in 1883, the winery is now managed by the fourth and fifth generations of the Wente family. I was privileged to have 3 family members on Cocktails for Everyone this year. Carolyn Wente, CEO and a fourth generation winegrower, was a guest on Episode 1 at the Nantucket Wine Festival. Christine Wente, Senior VP of Hospitality and Karl Wente, Winemaker – both fifth generation winegrowers – were my guests on Episode 10.

Day 2’s Holiday Gift Idea also comes from our first show….our very first guest on Cocktails for Everyone! was Denis Toner, Founder of the Nantucket Wine Festival. How about 2 tickets to the 2011 Grand Tasting or Harbor Gala in your stocking? Works for me!
Along with that, why not include a gift certificate to Nantucket’s American Seasons? Co-owners Michael La Scola (episode 1) and Orla Murphy LaScola (episode 3) run one of the best restaurants on the island, as well as have one of the best wine lists on the East Coast.
We will be broadcasting live from the beautiful White Elephant Resort on Nantucket with these wine & culinary luminaries:
- Dennis Toner, Founder & President of the Nantucket and Tanglewood Wine Festivals
- Dominique Demarville, Chef de Caves, Veuve Cliquot Ponsardin
- Michael LaScola, Chef & Co-Owner, American Seasons
- Carolyn Wente, CEO, Wente Vineyards
We will have so much to talk about with our guests – wine, champagne, food, the Wine Festival events….you can email or call in with questions for them as well.
