Saratoga and Cupertino wineries are within a half-hour's drive of downtown San Jose, and offer a chance to get out into the country without a long drive. Winery experiences here range from VIP Vineyard tours, to sit-down tastings with a Sommelier, to picnics with a view. Saratoga is also home to some nice restaurants, in case you want to stop for dinner at the end of your wine tour.
