Join us for a tour and wine tasting at Testarossa Winery, located in the historic Novitiate Winery in downtown Los Gatos. The winery was built in 1888 by Jesuit fathers and Testarossa still uses the same three-floor, gravity-flow facility for its winemaking and cellaring, making it one of the oldest continuously operating wineries in California. Of course, we will have time to sample a few of Testarossa’s limited-production wines from some of the state’s best known vineyard estates. Read more »
