66  /  the tasting panel  /  august 2017 EVENT WRAP-UP Wente Vineyards hosted its first White Party on a bright and sunny Memorial Day weekend, timed for National Chardonnay Day (May 25). Tickets had sold out in advance, and were selling online for twice their face value. The party, held at the winery in Livermore, CA, is planned as an annual event. It might have been the arrival of summer, but just about everyone got into the spirit of the day and wore white. The crowd was in a happy and festive mood, no doubt aided by the chilled wines that were enjoyed all afternoon. Jordan Wente, Fifth Generation Winegrower at Wente Vineyards, enthused, "It was a beautiful afternoon in the Livermore Valley, and everyone dressed in white to celebrate one of our favorite white wine varietals: Chardonnay. The music and scenery created an enchanting atmosphere where great wine and food was enjoyed by all!"
