The initial inspiration for entwine came from viewers’ requesting their trusted food source, Food Network, to introduce them to the world of wine. Food Network partnered with Wente Vineyards because Wente not only makes great wine, they also have a deep connection to food, embodied in their vegetable garden and on-site restaurant. Wente Vineyards understood and valued what Food Network heard from viewers and wanted to collaborate to create a line of wines that would match viewers’ expectations.

Both Wente Vineyards and Food Network believe that wine can elevate the everyday to extraordinary, whether paired with a home-cooked meal, a favorite snack, or simply sipped on its own.  “The entire Wente family is excited to partner with the culinary trailblazers at Food Network to create wines designed to enhance your favorite foods, from casual to festive occasions,” says Carolyn Wente, CEO of Wente Vineyards. “Our goal with these tours is to introduce Food Network fans and consumers across America to entwine, the winemaking process and the delicious marriage of food and wine.”
