Family owned, not fancy, good wines. No multi-million wine tasting complex just a country winery in a historic site. The alternative to the snobby Napa Valley. Free tastings. (No huge building loans to pay off.) 50% discounts on cases. My go-to winery when in Gilroy....More

Nice old time winery with a nice new tasting room. Great stop after visiting several other great wineries in the area. We found that many of the wines were exceptional and reasonably priced.

I have been here for weddings and a volleyball club function. The place is beautiful and the owner loves to work with the local community. We have tasted the wines, & we really enjoyed them as well.

Try their vin de Moca - one of a kind wine that is sent around the world. Very pretty scenery with cricket games on weekends on the grounds. Worthwhile to drop by if you passing this winery.

Who knew you could taste really good wine in Gilroy? Made a stop along the way & found a few new favorites! Both the Pinot Grigio & Noire are very drinkable, fruity but not overly sweet! The Petite Sirah is deep, blackberry, heavier tannins, delicious....More
