Join us for another fantastic Winter

Wine Tour!

This tour visits 3 of the top wineries in the

Gilroy area. Enjoy a picnic lunch, a VIP winery tour, upgraded tastings,

and very special purchase discounts, plus your own expert tour guide will host the tour.

Our first stop is Clos LaChance Winery, a beautiful Tuscan-style winery with outdoor terraces and hillside views in San Martin, CA (near Morgan Hill). Take the Vineyard to Bottle Tour,

a fun & informative tour of the vineyard and winery, guided

by a trained Sommelier. You’ll enjoy VIP access of their state-of-the-art

time for a gourmet picnic - our California Picnic Buffet, served

in the Grand Salon. (indoors)

Second Stop: Kirigin Cellars

Kirigin will offer the group special discounts on wine purchases.

Third stop: Solis Vineyard
