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.
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.
Open Daily (closed New Years Day, Easter, Thanksgiving, and Christmas Day)
Tastings: No appointment needed (but call with groups larger than six). No tasting fee except for Cuvee Series wines. Current release wines and, occasionally, mature vintage wines and pre-releases are poured.
