Free wine tastings here on a Saturday afternoon; what more can you ask for? And great customer service. They give you crackers and chocolate to clear your taste buds as your tasting all of their great wines. We walked away with two bottles of wine and joining their wine club. Great find!

Upon entering we could immediately feel warmth and aroma of a lovely place. Looking around to all the varieties and bottles of wine could almost be overwhelming to a newcomer until the friendly face of Arlene came up and greeted us. After selecting our choices for the tasting the excitement grew. the first bottles of white were poured and the... More

We come here every time we are in town or even close to here and make it a special stop. The wines are superb and the friendliness and knowledge of the staff makes it so enjoyable. This time we were so fortunate to have Arlene who not only knew the wines and gave us samples to compare. It was very... More

My daughter and I were looking for something to do and decided to check out J. Lohr. We were very impressed by the wine tasting. Our host Michael was so informative, attentive and helpful. We bought wine and joined their wine club. Can't wait to return next month to pickup my wine and taste some more!

I often go here with my parents, who live in the area. They make really nice red wines - whites are good, too, but not as consistently outstanding. Most of the best ones don't make it to the east coast where I live. Best to go to the source

Very friendly tasting room,where it's increasingly rare to find free tasting. Also, don't miss Wine and Cheese Fridays(in the evening).

This wine tasting is a find in Silicon Valley! The wine tasting is free with very experienced people serving the wine in a very nice setting that can be rented for meetings, offsites, or celebrations. It's very close to San Jose airport so great to do with clients/friends while shuttling too/from the airport. Definitely worth a stop while in Silicon... More
