Our Garden

The Garden at Wente Vineyards is a ½ acre organic production garden providing fresh produce and herbs to The Restaurant at Wente Vineyards, reflecting the combined efforts of Executive Chef Mike Ward and Master Gardener Diane Dovholuk. Their efforts represent the unbroken link between planting, gardening, harvesting, cooking and eating that illustrates The Restaurant’s ingredient-driven wine country cuisine. Continuing to grow fresh seasonal vegetables in the healthiest way possible, Diane is committed to sustainability by growing everything pesticide-free and using an extensive composting program from the home property’s 18-hole championship golf course and kitchen.
