2009 BEST OF SILICON VALLEY Reader Survey Winner - First Place
Best Local Winery
J. Lohr wines are distributed far and wide, but it's still very much a local winery that dates back to 1974. In addition to a diverse lineup of easy-to-like wines, part of the winery's appeal is its inviting tasting room near downtown. Added bonus: No tasting fees except for special cuv_e wines.
2008 BEST OF SILICON VALLEY Reader Survey Winner - First Place
Best Local Winery
While it’s nice to taste wine up in the Santa Cruz Mountains, sometimes it’s even nicer to be able to do it right in downtown San Jose. J. Lohr’s tasting room is spacious and handsome, managing to be both rustic and refined at the same time—in short, the perfect place to try their award-winning wines.
