Tamás Estates next to Wente in Livermore CAThough Tamás Estate wines are now owned and crafted by the Wente family, the Spanish flavored, Tuscan-themed tasting room sits in a separate building across from the Wente tasting room.
This separation distinguishes Tamás as a wine crafted in the style of its original winemakers—Iván Tamás Fuezy and Steve Mirassou.
The two men came to Livermore to refine their winemaking skills under Wente tutelage as well as use Wente’s infrastructure for administration and production. Carolyn Wente recalls that Fuezy and Mirassou were crafting beautiful, fresh, fruit-forward wines, exceptional everyday table wines.
