Castillo’s Hillside Shire
– Next to the family mansion on the hill, sits an authentic re-creation of an English Shire-style house – the Tasting Room for Castillo’s Hillside Shire Winery! Enjoy the beautiful grounds, great wines, and the warm hospitality of the Castillo family!
Clos La Chance – located in San Martin, near Morgan Hill, the winery offers beautiful views, nice wines and a gorgeous Tuscan-style facility. We love their behind-the-scenes tours, and it’s a great place for a winery dinner/event!
Jason-Stephens – Now a Tasting Room next to the highway
Kirigin Cellars – Known for their unique dessert wine, Vino de Mocca, Kirigin also has lots of outdoor activity space (huge baseball field and a cricket field on-site), a new Event Center for weddings and corporate events, and a beautiful picnic arbor with views of rolling hills, grazing cows, and vineyards.
Lion Ranch Vineyards & Winery– A small-production winery in Gilroy, Lion Ranch makes a nice array of quality wines and specialize in Rhone varietals, such as Marsanne, Grenache, Syrah, and more! One nice thing here: plenty of white wine choices – they even make a Piquepoul! An outdoor, open-air (but covered) Tasting Bar with nearby bistro-style seating & umbrellas for picnics.
Sarah’s Vineyard – A charming and small place with nice outdoor space and good wines
