In addition to daily wine tasting, we offer five different tours:
First Saturday of the month, 11 am, we offer an in-depth, winemaker-guided tour of our vineyards and winery that ends at the tasting room. Tour is free; wine tasting is $5. Reservations are required.
During the week, our winemaker, Bill, is happy to explain what (if anything) he is doing. If he is not working in the cellar (and our wine spends most of its time peacefully resting in our French oak barrels), you are welcome to walk around and see our facilities then join us for wine tasting. Here are some photos to familiarize you with our winery and vineyards.
Join our Docent, Ramblin' Bill, on a fun, casual and up-close hike through Cooper-Garrod Estate Vineyards and the adjoining Mid-Peninsula Open Space. This is a great opportunity to see spectacular scenery while learning about sustainable winegrowing practices. Bill’s tours wind through the estate’s distinct eco-systems, each one uniquely contributing to the process of sustainable winegrowing as well as preserving balance in the larger area. This moderate hike starts at 10 and lasts approximately two hours.
Bill has been fascinated with ecology for many years. He has a passion for hiking and has logged many miles on trails throughout the Bay Area and beyond.
Wear comfortable footwear and bring sunscreen and water, especially on hot days. You might consider leaving a cooler with picnic stuff in your car.
No charge, but please signup so we can plan accordingly.
Our in-depth, winemaker-guided tour is available by special arrangement for 10 or more people for $20 a person, which includes an 16 oz ounce souvenir tasting glass. Tours are subject to availability and reservations should be made at least 72 hours in advance.
Please use the comments section to convey any special information we need, e.g., description of your group, timing, etc., then return here to confirm after you hear back from us.
We use a mobile bottling line that will be here for one days. If you would like to learn about the process, we will conduct 15-20 minute tours at 11 and 2 each day and conclude in the tasting room.
No charge, but reservations are required as space is limited. Please advise your 1st and 2nd (if any) tour time. This is up close observation, but you're not actually working the bottling line.
