Came here for a wine tasting and I have to say that this place was awesome! It took a good 20 minutes with traffic to get up the mountain. The views from the vineyard are absolutely breathtaking. They have a great selection of Wines. Be sure not to miss Jesse, aka "the mayor." He was very friendly and entertaining. Don't... More

the venue is beautiful. Beware when purchasing tickets. Only purchasing from AXS. I thought I was purchasing from the winery website and after purchasing my tickets, they came from sales@selectaticket and ended up being twice as much as the original face value of the ticket and they also do not send you the seats you picked out. There was a... More

I quit my job recently and my husband wanted to make me feel better so he planned a night out at the Mountain Winery with a comedian he had heard on the radio (KPIG 5 o'clock funnies). He bought tickets for the show online, and couldn't keep it a surprise: He showed me the restaurant choices so we picked the... More

This is an extremely unique & intimate venue, one that I am glad I've had the opportunity to experience. The theater is carved into the side of a mountain at just over 1300 ft. The architecture is beautiful and elegant. It doesn't appear to have a bad seat in the house, though we sat right up front, so I'm not... More

Love, love, love this venue for a concert! Big enough to attract big name performers, but small enough to have every seat = good seat! Dining options run the gamut from white tablecloth gourmet prix fixe to grab-a-sandwich. Fabulous views and good wine!

Super expensive in my opinion but worth it. Great sound quality and visability. Avoid traffic and take the shuttle, available in Saratoga or Los Gatos

This place was seriously up a windy mountain road! I thought my gps had taken me the wrong way...but no. The venue is beautiful, the stone amphiteater looks like a great place to see a concert! I was there for some wine tasting, and the only bar open was the upper tasting area(outdoors). There was a small wedding on the... More

First off the venue is expensive. It is also small with great sight lines. We were there to see Toto with Michael McDonald. I had not been here since the renovations. Great job. We spent the night in Saratoga and took advantage of a shuttle service that stopped at our hotel (The Saratoga Oaks). See separate review. The shuttle was... More

Nice place indeed but the way it is managed for the live music concerts is something else that potential visitors should be aware of. A few months ago I have purchased a ticket for Andrew Bird concert on the 2nd of August (actually a great concert), the total ticket price is 73USD, not cheap and you think that this is... More

I love going to concerts at this location. I just saw the Goo Goo Dolls and soon will be going to see Matisyahu. The small venue is wonderful for actually being able to see the performers. The outside eating and wines before hand just improve the whole experience (although a bit pricey). If you are in the South Bay Area... More
