On June 15, it’s time for our Wine Club Annual San Jose Bus Trip. This year, our San Jose bus trip will explore the wineries of the Santa Cruz Mountain appellation!  We’ll head west over the Santa Cruz Mountains for our first stop at Alfaro Family Vineyards & Winery.  Owners Richard and Mary Kay will be our hosts for wine tasting at their glorious location in Corralitos.  Then, on to the picturesque town of Aromas for tasting with J.P. Pawloski at River Run Vintners where he crafts wines from vineyards throughout central California.  We’ll enjoy a wonderful lunch at the Aromas Grill, a new restaurant in the area, hosted by owners Sal and Michelle and prepared by Chef Marvin – with wines from River Run Vintners.  Our final stop will be at the unique artisan glass studio, Annieglass, where glass items have been designed and handcrafted since the 1980s – a California original!  And they have wine tasting!  So after a tour of the studio, we’ll sample several of their wine selections.  From Annieglass we’ll head back to the J. Lohr Winery for arrival between 5:30pm and 6:00pm after an incredible day!

To make or confirm your reservation, please call Michele at 408.918.2260, or email mmcgregor@jlohr.com.  Reservations must be made by June 1.
