I enjoy going wine tasting around the bay area, but there is one winery that is in town and not too far from downtown San Jose. J. Lohr Winery is convenient and you get the same experience as you do in many fine wineries without having to drive to Livermore or Gilroy or Santa Cruz mountains. I am a member... More

Although I have lived in San Jose for many years and certainly have drank J. Lohr wines, I have never visited their tasting room. I went with friends to a wine dinner recently - what a wonderful event! This event was a Tapas and wine tasting. I figured it would be generous bites - it was so much more! As... More

The tasting room is very close to my home and is located centrally in San Jose. The staff there is very knowledgeable about the wine and always seem to remember their wine members. I have take many friends there from out of town who wish to wine taste during a business trip with limited time. It's Napa in San Jose!... More

Fun time - felt a little like a neighborhood bar - many locals there. Enjoyed every wine I tasted and that you got to choose six to try from a list of 15 or more. I would go back - had wine shipped home!

Went here for a wine and chocolate tasting with some friends, and really enjoyed ourselves. The host were informative without being condescending, and they really helped us see the effects of the wine on the taste of the chocolate and vice versa. The wines and chocolates were very good, and all the guests were friendly. Overall, a great time!

J Lohr wines may not be among the utmost celebrated vinos in the USA (marketing strategy?) - but they are always good, deserving of respect... And many of them are indeed outstanding. And - best of all - always affordable! This is family-run operation, opened not that long ago (1974), not a big winery nor boutique either. But its tasting... More

I was in Santa Clara for some business meetings. I knew I wouldn't have time to make it up to wine country, but was delighted to find this tasting room not far away in San Jose. Two colleagues and I arrived a little after 4:00 on a Wednesday evening. There were others there, but still room at the tasting bar.... More

Second visit to the J. Lohr winery in Paso Robles. The staff is always friendly and knowledgeable and the tasting is free in a beautiful area, what more could you ask for? Definitely stop in this winery if you're in the area. We even joined their wine club during out last visit.

I love how easily I can go to a winery 10 minutes from home. It is almost in downtown San Jose off the Alameda. They have a very friendly wine room staff. Great wine to taste and a wonderful wine club. Don't miss it.

We were meeting people and had a little time and needed something close to the Airport which we just flew into. Found J. Lorh Winery on line listed close. It is around businesses and does not look like your typical wine tasting. No grapes or long winding drive more industrial which it is. They produce the wine here only. However... More
