LIVERMORE, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 14, 2015) - Wente Family Estates, the oldest continuously-operating family-owned winery in America, is making a significant investment in the future of Murrieta's Well, one of California's original historic estates. Beginning November 30, 2015, the Murrieta's Well tasting room in the Livermore Valley will temporarily close to undergo a renovation designed to enhance the property, guest, bridal and club member experience.

As part of the renovation, the tasting room will now feature a new club exclusive area, expanded tasting area, outdoor seating, full kitchen and improved ADA accessibility throughout the property.

"This renovation demonstrates our continued commitment to Murrieta's Well and to our guests who visit the property," says Robbie Meyer, Winemaker for Murrieta's Well.

We want to preserve the estate's beautiful charm and build on its rich history while making upgrades to provide enhanced experiences to our club members and guests."

Meyer focuses on small lot harvesting and blending to ensure the highest quality wine is made every vintage from the Murrieta's Well estate.

During the renovation, Murrieta's Well wines will continue to be available for purchase through the winery's website,, as well as our call center that will be available to process any orders.

About Murrieta's Well:
Murrieta's Well, one of California's original wine estates in the Livermore Valley, is a tribute to the early winemaking pioneers who brought fine wine to this region more than a century ago. The historic estate and the wine blends capture the winemaking spirit of early California. The estate and original gravity-flow winery have been a part of the Wente Family since the early 1930s when French native Louis Mel sold the estate to his friend and neighbor, Ernest Wente. In 1990, Ernest's grandson, Fourth Generation Winegrower Philip Wente, co-founded Murrieta's Well winery with winemaker Sergio Traverso as a way to pay homage to the property's rich history and heritage. Today, the celebrated estate is wholly owned and operated by Wente Family Estates and crafts wine blends that showcase the very best of the estate and harvest each and every vintage.
