Closest to San Jose would be the wineries in Cupertino, Saratoga, and Los Gatos, followed by Gilroy, Santa Cruz, and Livermore. A full tour of the closest local wineries is typically 5.5 hrs – this allows enough time to visit 3 wineries, enjoy a winery activity such as a behind-the-scenes tour, and have a picnic lunch (restaurant meals may also be incorporated into your tour, but add some time as compared to a picnic at the winery).
A full tour to Napa requires 9 to 10 hours, which is 4 hours in round-trip travel time, plus 5 or 6 hours to be in Napa.
