We visited with full intention of buying a few bottles. We walked in and there was no one there! Just a couple of dogs. We walked around and then out the door. Very strange and very disappointing.

Had a great time tasting excellent wines from the local area. Nick made our tasting wonderful. He was highly knowledgeable about the wines, the area and its history. The wines are a great representation of the region's Italian heritage. The garlic wines and cooking wines...More

The sign said "GARLIC WINE". This wine lover (and maker) and garlic freak could not resist stopping. Upon entry we waited an inordinate time for someone to enter the room and greet us. It turned out to be the owner who was less than friendly....More

Visited the Garlic Shoppe to pick up some fabulous pickled garlic and other garlicky items. They gave us a coupon to visit the winery with free tasting and $ off a bottle. We tried 3 wines and the champagne and purchased them all! They have...More

Only in Gilroy, home of the Garlic Festival, will you find a winery that serves Garlic Wine. I can't say that I loved it, but it was interesting. The staff were great and they have some other good wines. Still, you have to try the...More

I thought this place was a dump and horrible. We made a purchase at the Garlic Store and qualified for free tastings at Rappazini. Since we were use to pet friendly wine tastings we asked if we could bring in our small dog. The owner...More

Have been stopping at Rapazzini's for years, love their garlic cooking wines. Their red wines are high quality, love their Barbera. You'll find a wide selection of garlic products, moderately priced. Service is very friendly and helpful. For dog lovers, there's a big old poodle...More

We've tried red and green chile wine in New Mexico, and since we were going through Gilroy, it only made sense to try garlic wine...along with several other selections. The pink Muscat is as nice patio wine that will taste great on a hot afternoon...More

This has got to be the worst "winery" I've ever been to. The owner was completely unprofessional, and everything he said to us was rude. He even insulted us a few times, and made several snide remarks against people and wine tasters in general. He...More
