"Silicon Valley" - it's easy to forget this area's role as California's first premium wine production region - the Santa Clara Valley. Native Americans named it "the Valley of the Heart's Delight." French and Italian immigrants who settled here during the Gold Rush era recognized the rich soils and Mediteranean climate as the perfect New World home for their European grape varietals. And so it begins.
Take a step back in time to a more relaxed era. Visiting our historic wineries is to leave the Computer Age behind. The person pouring for you in our Tasting Rooms may very well be the winemaker! When you are on vacation or business, please be sure to visit our conveniently situated wineries throughout the Valley. Daily tasting is available at most of our wineries. Many offer tours, special festivals, concerts and dinners. Several are available for picture-perfect private parties, corporate events, and weddings.
