In addition to our exceptional wines and service in our Tasting Room and at Wine Bar 107, Testarossa is proud to offer Silicon Valley’s ultimate winery tour – The Los Gatos Wine & Cheese Experience.                           

We invite you to take an expertly guided tour through the historic cellars of Testarossa. You’ll learn about the Testarossa winemaking process firsthand, focusing on the techniques that allow us to define the terroir of our small lot, single vineyard releases. You will learn about the Jensen Family history, of how two tech professionals followed their dreams, took their weekend hobby and transformed it into one of the most celebrated wineries in California. The Los Gatos Wine and Cheese Experience concludes with a private, salon-style tasting of five Testarossa wines paired with four selections of artisan cheeses.  You will learn the principles of food pairing and even try a few experiments.

The Los Gatos Wine and Cheese Experience is offered Wednesday through Friday at 1:00 pm, and Saturday and Sunday at 11:30 am or 2:00 pm. Reservations are required. No minors are allowed at this event. Due to our historic setting, this experience typically requires use of stairs to access certain areas of the winery. Please alert us of any guests with disabilities so that we can make the necessary accommodations by calling our concierge at (408) 354-6150 x31. This one-of-a-kind experience is $65 per person.
