September 2015

  • September 5, Walk with the Winemaker, 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.  Come walk into our Chardonnay vineyard and we'll discuss the growing cycle.  Continue through the crush pad, tank farm, and barrel room. This is your chance to ask what's current in the process. Finish up in the tasting room to see what comes of it all!  The tour is complimentary; $10 tasting fee for a flight of current releases.  
  • September 6, Third Season of Music at the Vineyards, Sundays, 1:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. What a great way to 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.  The series continues through the fall. Please note that ABC regulations require No Outside Alcoholic Beverages in our picnic area, thank you.  For more information, please read our picnic area policy.
  • September 12, Wine Blending & Gourmet Pizza Party,  5:00 p.m. @ Justin’s in Downtown Santa Clara. Ready to experience what it takes to craft our Test Pilot blends PLUS enjoy a spirited wine-paired meal?  Then make your reservation now to join us Saturday, September 12, 5:00 p.m. at Justin’s in downtown Santa Clara. Innovative Executive Chef Justin Perez created a custom Cooper-Garrod paired meal featuring gourmet pizzas prepared in his state-of-the-art pizza oven.  In addition to the great meal, you get to find out about our Test Pilot F-7U Cutlass components, Cabernet Franc and Syrah.  Then, join a team and perform trials to arrive at the perfect blend – just like we do every vintage. Each team’s creation ultimately competes head-to-head in a blind taste challenge to see which one “reigns supreme”.  The price is only $95 + tax per person; Club members are $85 per person + tax. (Our Wine Blending event alone is normally $45!) Reservations can be made until September 7 online by clicking here or by calling 408-867-7116.  Hope you can make it!
