Woodside Vineyards has been credited with being one of the first wineries to pioneer the "boutique winery" movement in California and is the oldest winery in San Mateo County. Wonder collection of vintage cars on display. Woodside Vineyards is open Sat. & Sunday.
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.
Dominick and Gloria Chirichillo’s choice of name for their winery is a reflection of their commitment to their Italian heritage and the tradition of family winemaking. In 1955 in New York, Dominick who is called Domenico in Italian was introduced to these traditions by his Nonno (grandfather), Domenico Giovinazzo. In the basement of their home was a wine press that Nonno showed Dominick; passing down from one generation to another the love of handcrafting wine. Affordable, delicious Santa Cruz Mountain wines, great tasting room, wonderful owners/winemakers. It has been inspiring in seeing Domenico Wines expand and grow. Kudos, and wishing the team the very best on their latest wines and their new tasting room location in San Carlos. Domenico Wines was included in a brief video presentation of wineries that are part of the 3rd Annual Mid Peninsula Summer Wine Trail. You can get a peek HERE We are looking forward to getting an interview (video) with Dominick Chirichillo in the near future.~

Fellom Ranch was founded in 1928 by Senator Roy Fellom. The land was already planted with vines, but prohibition was in effect at the time. According to reports the vines were tended by local families who harvested the grapes for their own use as payment. The 12 acre vineyard was eventually largely replanted and in 1987 the winery became bonded to sell wines.
The Winery is located in the beautiful Morgan Hill valley with gorgeous views of the foothills. Built in 1913, the winery is one of the oldest wineries in Santa Clara County. The Tasting Room is elegant for you to relax, with Italian-Mediterranean architecture, terra cotta walls, a redwood wine bar and more.
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.~

This winery is fun! They're only open the third weekend of the month. Tucked away down Redwood Retreat Road about 3.5 miles from Watsonville Road, the drive to get here is truly spectacular.
They are only open the third weekend of each month and passport weekends. They ask that you sign in and they then give you name tags with your first name on it. The staff was friendly and the owners Therese and Dan were walking around greeting people.
Dan and Therese Martin clearly have a passion for making great wine. They have scores of awards for their wine but that's not what they lead with. Their tasting room is welcoming and intimate. The vibe is comfortable and engaging.
Martin Ranch produces a variety of wines from Chardonnay to Cab Franc, Sauvignon Blanc to Sangiovese.
Wine should reflect its’ origin. Wine should display the uniqueness of its’ soil and climate. Wine should tell a story, or at least create one, to be told over and over again to smiling faces and half empty glasses. Wine is joy, and Stroth-Hall Cellars takes pleasure to bring joy to your world and your glass.
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.
