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. Lohr tasting room (just 2 miles from Convention Center). You will be able to taste up to 6 perfect wines for free and buy a few bottles... More

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

Because of meds I am on I cannot drink. (Insert frowney face here). But enough of the pity party because even though I couldn't drink (I did taste a smidge) J. Lohr Winery is an awesome place. 6 friends and I did a tasting party and several of the ladies purchased wine to take home. We did the wine and... More

We remembered j Lohr from 16 or more years ago. It was a friendly wine tasting bar with a helpful staff and good deals on wine. It has only changed from super to super great. We enjoyed the samples and descriptions of the locale of the the grapes etc. Well worth a visit with nearby restaurants for after samples!

Our first stop was a wine tasting at the J. Lohr tasting room. Great setting and great wines. I also learned that J. Lohr has a Wine Club that allows you to have wine shipped to you quarterly at a discounted rate. It is a great way to try out a variety of wines from them throughout the year. They... More

We are big J. Lohr wine fans so on our recent trip from Monterey to San Fran, we ducked into San Jose to stop by the J. Lohr tasting room. What a great surprise. The room is tastefully decorated and in the back area you can watch the bottling process in action. There are special events held in this room... More

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
