Naumann is a small family estate located in the Santa Cruz Mountains with panoramic views overlooking Silicon Valley in the unincorporated part of Cupertino, California. Don Naumann’s wines come from grapes which are exclusively grown in the Santa Cruz Mountains. The grapes are hand cultivated, harvested and crafted in small lots in order to produce the highest quality wine. The Naumann Vineyards and the winery was founded in 2001 by winemaker and owner Don Naumann who purchased the property in 1987 and planted the vineyard in 1994. This prime location coupled with warm days and cool mountain nights produces the finest varieties of wines.

Varner Wine Twins Jim and Bob Varner quietly farm a 14-acre vineyard in Portola Valley which was planted in 1980. They helped out during the 1980s at Thomas Fogarty Winery where they learned the business. Since their first wine was released in 1996, Bob has handled the winemaking and Jim directs the sales and marketing. The winery is located on the estate vineyard property. Varner Wine is located at 648 Menlo Ave., Suite 5, Menlo Park. The wines are sold on the website in half and full case lots. Varner has become more well known for their Chardonnays which are superb.
While they are only open on Saturdays and passport weekends, you can taste their wines at Pinder, just a few store-fronts down, any weekend. If you are anywhere close-by, you're really missing out if you don't find a reason to stop by soon. This is such a delightful little Gem tucked away in the most unexpected of areas.
Every winemaker pours a little bit of their self into their handcrafted wines. From the soil, vineyard, grapes and the actual end product, the wine. Six generations our family has cared for and improved the estate and has heavily shaped what the Fernwood Cellars brand has become today.

Ridge wines begin with respect for the natural process that transforms fresh grapes into wine, and for the 19th century model of guiding that process. A great vineyard that produce high-quality grapes of distinct, individual character, this approach is not only environmentally and socially responsible, it’s also the best way to consistently make fine wine.
Old County Cellars is a great little urban winery own and operated by a group of friends that just happened to love wines and emersed themselves in winemaking back in 2010. One day enjoying their luscious Carmeros Pinot Noir they decided; "Let's do this" and Old County Cellars was born. After two years of leasing space from another local winery, Old County Cellars opened their own tasting room in San Carlos California. Fun people and fun wines. We look forward to doing a video review of a few of their wines in the future but you can get a little peek from this breif video of the visit we made during the 3rd Annual Mid Peninsula Wine Walk by just clicking HERE. Be sure to tell Dan, Jim, Jeff and Toni a big hello from California Corks when you stop by and enjoy a few of their great wines.~
