Milpitas’ one and only winery, Big Dog Vineyards, opens its doors to the public for wine tasting and a live concert on Saturday, July 24, and a day of more wine tasting on Sunday, July 25.

The winery will be open for tasting both days from noon to 5pm. From 6 to 9pm on Saturday, the Colony Street Band will play covers from the ’70s to today.

Wine tasting is free, but $10 gets visitors a Riedel glass with Big Dog’s logo. The cost of the concert is $10 and includes parking. Space is limited.

Big Dog Vineyards specializes in cabernet franc and cabernet sauvignon, grape varieties that do well in the rocky hills and cool climate in the hills above Milpitas.
