    Years ago we just knew Napa Valley as a wine region in California. Then we explored the vineyards "East of the Bay" (Wente, Fenestra, the California Rangers $150 Well, ... in Livermore), and meanwhile we moved towards Santa Cruz Mountains. We visited all wineries in Saratoga, but this time we decided (on foot!) to Testa Rossa in Los Gatos. It was quite a steep climb (next time maybe take the car), but it was worth it. We chose the "Appelation & Single Vineyard Tasting" (for $20 which one eventually dropped because we decided to become a member of the winery). That tasting consisted of 3 Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs, and 3 that are also the grapes in which Testa Rossa itself seems to specialize. It was a fun experience. The man behind the bar gave us a lot of useful information, and we also got to talking with other viewing recommended crushing us once come back one evening with music (during weekends) or on a special event.

    Testarossa was originally built by Jesuits in 1888. Eventually, it was sold to a red head, and thus it's name. Our sommelier was attentive, friendly and knowledgeable. The Testarossa grounds are a bea...  more »

    Beautiful winery on the hill overlooking Los Gatos. We visited on a Sunday and saw numerous people setting up picnics on the winery grounds. (Something we'll do next time we visit.) The staff was very...  more »

    I never would have seen Testarossa Winery, but luckily my Rotary club meets here which means I've had the pleasure of learning about Testarossa Winery and Dan's business philosophy. A great place, a great atmosphere, and a great time to be had! Give it a try and see what the buzz is about! Oh, and park next door at the public lot. 50 cents an hour. Hard to beat in Walnut Creek.

    What a nice place. Amazing rose wine and great selection of appetizers. The staff is incredibly friendly and attentive.

    We were married here in November 2009 and it was spectacular. The cave is the perfect size for around 75-100 guests, and it was absolutely stunning inside.

    Modest wine tasting prices, decent wines. If you are fond of California Pinot noir, you'll like the wines. This is also a beautiful event space for hosting a party, wedding, etc. Personally, though, I felt that the wine tasting staff were knowledgeable, but all 'business' (i.e., get you in, get you out), so it was hard to relax and chill. We only stayed about 10 minutes because of that. Next time I think I'd rather just go get a glass of wine, sit outside, and enjoy the view. It truly is beautiful and tucked away in the woods. Worth a visit even just for that.

    My wife, brother and I had a delightful time here on Friday. The wine tasting was fun and the food delicious. Just a relaxing and enjoyable time.
