August 2017

  • August 19, Eco-Tour, 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. - Celebrate the start of summer by learning a little more about the land surrounding where our grapes are grown!  Look more at the flora, fauna, and wildlife of our ecosystems here at the ranch, located in the foothills of the Santa Cruz Mountains.  Join our Eco-Tour with local expert Ramblin' Bill Bosworth for the approximately one-and-a-half hour walk along dirt trails up our hillsides overlooking Silicon Valley.  Not overly strenuous, you will want to wear decent walking shoes, perhaps bring a water bottle and hat, plus maybe a little sunscreen.  The tour is complimentary.  Consider bringing a picnic and doing a little wine tasting afterward!   Please email events@cgv.com to let us know you're coming, so we have an idea how many to expect.  
  • August 20,  Music at the Vineyards, Sundays, 1:00 - 4:00 p.m. - Bridgid Marie Trio: R&B, Pop, Soul and Smooth Jazz Spend your Sunday afternoon sipping wine in the fresh air under beautiful old trees, listening to music like it's a private little concert just for a select group - which is exactly what this IS!  Bring some cheese and crackers, or a picnic, buy a bottle of wine, and enjoy the afternoon.  The series continues through the fall. Please note our ABC regulations: No Outside Alcoholic Beverages - which means the only alcoholic beverages allowed are Cooper-Garrod wines - on the property!  Thank you for cooperation in advance!  For more information on our picnic area, please read our picnic area policy.
  • August 24, Bordeaux-style Tasting: Ours and Theirs   As you may know, two of our Test pilot Red Blends - the F-86 Sabre Jet and F6F Hellcat are inspired by the wines of Bordeaux.  The Sabre Jet, our blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot, is a nod to the Cabernet Sauvignon-dominated wines of Bordeaux's Left Bank, while the Hellcat, our blend of Cabernet Franc and Merlot, is a nod to the wines of Bordeaux's Right Bank. Join us Thursday, August 24 at 6:30 p.m. for a special seated tasting of our Sabre Jet and Hellcat plus their French counterparts.  Learn more about the Bordeaux region and how our wines differ from those produced there.  Cost is only $25 per person + tax; $20 per person + tax for Club members.  Price includes flight of wines and light snacks.  RSVP by August 18 is required.  Club Member Reservations:  please email club@cgv.com or call the Club Hotline (408) 867-8444.
