We took a little side trip to do something while on business nearby and found the J Lohr Winery Tasting Room. It is only a tasting room and does not have lunch or tours as is not the actual winery. (They do bottling there, however) The tastings are free and the staff was fantastic! We loved the experience and has... More

We're a club member; joined in Paso Robles, but pick up our wines in SJ. Parking is always easy, the tasting room isn't swamped, the pourers are friendly, and the selection of wines to taste is very good. If you're around downtown SJ, don't pass this up. I first went to J. Lohr in 1976 and wow has it expanded.

J. Lohr's tasting room is located in the Alameda/midtown area of San José, west of downtown and close to a more residential area. I live nearby, so I am a bit biased, but I do love this local tasting room. (To get there on public transportation from downtown, take the #22 bus straight down the Alameda and get off close...

We showed up as a party of 6 late on a Saturday morning to check out the tasting room. I think it would have been better to have had a reservation but they were very accommodating and set us up in a private room. We could choose 6 wines to taste from a list of about 20. The pours were... More

J Lohr offers a wine and food pairing for a set price on certain evenings. We went with a group of 10 friends and had a great time. There were 24 guests there in total. There were 5 courses, each introduced by the chef and sommelier and lots of explanation of how the pairings worked. The chef also went around... More

When you arrive at J. Lohr you are given a list of several white and red wines and asked to check off up to six wines that you would like to taste. They also have a small selection of reserve wines and these tastings are $5. The staff are friendly and helpful and there is a nice covered patio outside... More

When you are on conference in the San Jose Convention Center, it is difficult to find time for visit wineries around, but it is always possible to find one hour to visit J.

I am a member of J.Lohr Winery and have taken many of my friends to wine taste at their San Jose Location. It is a free wine tasting and the wines are very reasonably priced...compared to Napa Wineries. The wine is great and it's close to other places to visit around town. You don't have to drive 50 miles for... More

I had a few hours to kill before my flight from San Jose left, so I stopped in here to check it out. Tastings are free, so you just go up to the bar and they will give you tastes of up to six different wines. The staff was very friendly and interesting, and was a great place to stop... More
