The Nth Degree wines are handcrafted, limited production wines. Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and Pinot Noir have been chosen by Fifth Generation Winemaker, Karl D. Wente to epitomize the heritage of these varietals in the Livermore Valley and Arroyo Seco appellations. The focus of this small lot program is to create wines that reflect the distinctive terroir of the Wente family’s Estate Vineyards, as well as to highlight the craftsmanship involved in hands-on winemaking. Each wine must show style and finesse of stellar degree to be bottled with the Nth Degree label. Only the best of the best, regardless of vintage or variety, achieve this distinction.
The Nth Degree vintages require careful treatment from vineyard to barrel because the lots are typically quite small and must be kept separate until blending, says Karl. We make every effort to express the distinctive vineyard and varietal characteristics of each wine. Exacting and unrelenting in his approach, Karl is taking his winemaking to The Nth Degree.
The Nth Degree wines are allocated and available for purchase for wine club members only (not sold to the public) and are also available in a very few specially selected restaurants and on and off-premise establishments in the US. Stop by our Tasting Room and taste wine made to “The Nth Degree”!
