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

Unexpected location for a winery, close to downtown San Jose. Very good wine. Relaxing wine tasting experience without fighting the crowds and more pricey wine country.

After we dropped our kid off at Santa Clara University we had some time on a Saturday afternoon and decided to stop in here as only 2 miles from campus. Rebecca who helped us was terrific and introduced us to some varietals and blends that we had never tried before. The tasting was complimentary and there wasn't any pressure to... More

While in San Jose for a long week-end we enjoyed the free wine tasting at J Lohr. Our server was very knowledgable about the wines, the area and even recommended a great restaurant for dinner.

Had an amazing experience here. Great atmosphere. Staff was wonderful. I was visiting on business had the weekend off. Decided to stay in the local area. It was great! Loved that I can find their wines back East as well. Will definitely visit again when I am in the area!

While traveling to San Jose, I had an unexpected afternoon off. I looked on TripAdvisor for 'things to do in San Jose' and J. Lohr came up. I went in on a Monday afternoon and Louie was the first to greet me. He asked me my likes and provided some great red wines right up my alley. He was extremely... More

While spending some time visiting a friend in San Jose, this made for a very pleasant afternoon trip. The staff was extremely helpful, nice, and welcoming. Pretty good wine, and not too busy!

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
