Summer/Fall Public Tour Series

Looking for a fun thing to do in the San Francisco Bay Area? Check out our Summertime wine tours that are open to the public - we sell the seats individually, so you don't need your own group (but feel free to bring one!). And if you like the tour but can't make the date, we are happy to re-create any of our public tours into a private tour just for you and your friends!

Gilroy & Morgan Hill Wine Tour
(11:30 am to 4:30 pm)

Satori Cellars, Clos La Chance, and Castillo's Hillside Shire

Have you ever had pink Chardonnay, or walked a secret passageway? Had lunch with a view, and a serenade, too? Join us on October 18th and you'll experience these things and more as we tour 3 of our favorite Gilroy/Morgan Hill area wineries!

Castillo's family property

This tour begins with a visit to tiny Satori Cellars where the tasting begins with Chardonnay of the Pink-Ray (true un-oaked Chard with a touch of blush from the estate Petite Syrah), and ends with one of their award-winning reds (we'll try 4 wines here altogether). Satori is a family-run winery, owned by husband and wife team Sandy and Tom Moller - Tom's the winemaker, Sandy's the Everything Else, and much of what they produce is grown on their surrounding property.

Next, we head over to Clos LaChance for the upgraded wine tasting and time for a delicious boxed lunch picnic on the patio - with great views of rolling hills and the Cordevalle golf resort. Following lunch, we'll take a tour behind the scenes where we'll see the production area, portable bottling line, gigantic barrel room, and then we'll walk the secret passageway back to the Tasting Room where the winery offers our guests a 20% discount on wine purchases.

Finally, we pop over to Castillo's Hillside Shire Winery - and yes, you guessed it - this is where you just may be serenaded, by one of the singing Castillos - they pretty much all sing, and one also plays guitar, so it's a fun way to end the tour - tasting wine inside an authentically created Hobbit Shire, alongside the family mansion on the hill, overlooking the lake with swans and geese while sipping away...

We hope you'll join us!
