Villa del Monte Winery is an award-winning, family-owned boutique winery in Los Gatos, CA. We are open for wine tasting, and we pour at wine tasting events throughout the local area. Located in the picturesque Santa Cruz Mountains, we specialize in Chardonnay, Cabernet, Malbec, Merlot, Pinot, Syrah, Syrah Rosé, and Zinfandel. We believe in producing extraordinary single-varietal, single-vineyard wines that reflect the terroir of the vineyards. Our small lots of wine allow us to meticulously control quality, nurturing our fine Villa del Monte wines to perfection at every step in the process.
Since our first vintage in 1999, Windy Oaks driving objective has been to produce world-class Pinot Noir that faithfully represents our unique vineyard terroir, with no compromises. Our winemaking begins in our vineyards, which we farm in a fully sustainable way, using many organic and biodynamic practices.
In the winery, our philosophy is to use a minimal intervention approach to fully preserve the grape quality achieved in our vineyards. Nothing is rushed—every effort is made to let the wine evolve naturally to its best expression. Hence, the winery is all-gravity, wines are aged on their lees in French oak for 17 to 27 months, and all wines are bottled without filtering or fining.
Woodside Vineyards is one of the oldest, small California wineries, boasting estate wines that are carefully nurtured from vineyard to bottle.
We cultivate vines in Woodside’s unique climate and soil. Our careful management of each stage of the process from growing to bottling produces the highest quality and vintage character year after year. All grapes are hand-picked and sorted. Small lot production assures minimal processing and gentle handling.
Our specialties are Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon wines, along with other special small lots including sparkling wine and port. The wines are styled to purposely complement casual food as well as fine meals.
Wrights Station features estate grown Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, poured in our elegant, but relaxed family-friendly tasting room, or enjoyed on our patio or deck overlooking the vineyard with stunning views of the redwoods and mountains beyond.
