Our historic tasting room, the Fruit House, is open daily (weekdays, 12-5; weekends, 11-5) - closed Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's Day. Click for directions.
We have three tasting panels: one complimentary (two wines) and two Proprietor's Flights (four or five additonal wines - $5 in our glass, $10 in your 16 oz. souvenir glass).
Bring a picnic to enjoy with some of our wines or plan on lunch or dinner in one of Saratoga's great restaurants.
Try our wines, then we'll direct you to other known, and not-so-well-known, wineries in the Santa Cruz Mountains - each with different wines to try and stories to tell!
We are happy to welcome your group for a one hour, regular or after-hours wine tasting of our Proprietor's Flight in the 16 oz. souvenir glass - $20/person, 10 person minimum. Click on Private Tastings to learn more. Click here if you are considering a tour with the tasting.
In addition to daily wine tasting, we offer several different tours:
First Saturday of the month, 11 am, we offer an in-depth, winemaker-guided tour of our vineyards and winery followed by a tasting of our wines. The tour is free, but please limit your group to 8. If you have more, please request a special group tour. 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.
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 8 or more people for $20 a person. 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 two or three days. So you can lear about the process, we 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 choice (if any) for a tour time. This is up close observation, but you're not actually working the bottling line.
