I returned to Clos LaChance with a friend to join a lovely birthday celebration. I generally agree with other reviewers: absolutely beautiful location but nothing special about their wines.

We did enjoy our picnic for 12 on their grounds. I always feel so relaxed in such beautiful surroundings. Excellent spot for a GNO get-together.

The Time for Wine events are extremely popular and free. We saw the Chris Gardner Band the evening we were there...seems to be a fairly well-known country-rock artist. There must have been a line of cars on the side of the road for about one mile from the winery parking lot (also full). We could have kissed the shuttle driver's feet for providing that shuttle service and saving us from a very long walk.

Note that their policy as of this writing is no beverage carry-ins(including any Clos LaChance wine you may have previously purchased).

We went here after shipping at the outlets in Gilroy. We found it online and thought we'd give it a shot. So glad we did. The staff was super friendly when we did our tasting and was very personable. The wine was excellent but the view is what stole the show. It's on gorgeous grounds that have spectacular views. We are already planning our next trip soon!

This place is a bit of a drive up a lane and then a private drive.....but once inside it is warm and inviting. The gentleman behind the bar was friendly and easy to strike up a conversation. He explained the 2 offerings of tastings available and we decided to spend the extra for the better wines, and I think it was the better choice. The wines very good. They have a very comfortable setting in the vineyard.

Beautiful winery close to San Jose. Rivals Napa Valley wineries. Super spot for a wedding, very romantic spot. Wine tasting was good. Only $5 for 5 wines. Good selection for tasting. Spent about two hours here just sitting, sipping, talking and enjoying the wonderful scenery. Want to come back here when in the area again. Thanks to our son who brought us here.
