Congratulations to the Went family and their generational impact on the production of excellent Chardonnay in California!

However, I don't think your facts are true in the title statement, "...nearly 80% of California Chardonnay grapes come from Wente vineyards." I think the correct statement is: "... nearly 80% o California Chardonnay grapes are grown on rootstock clonal selection recognized as "the Wente clone."

Thanks!
