Portola Vineyards

 We believe there's something special about drinking local wine. Since 2005, our family has been producing hand-crafted vintages that reflect the terroir of the Peninsula foothills, and sharing them with the local community.


Many are surprised to hear that the hills above Silicon Valley have a rich viticultural history. These foothills were once California's premier winegrowing region, and the small vineyards here today continue to produce phenomenal wines. We follow a minimalist philosophy in our winemaking, including the use of native yeast fermentations, to let the essence of our region shine through.


Please call us if you are interested in bringing your group of 5 to 50 people to the winery for a private summer-season wine tasting. We do require some advance notice, and we may not be available on the day you have in mind. We can give your group a tour of the vineyard and winery and discuss our organic farming and our winemaking methods. All tastings are $20 per person and include a tour with the winemaker.


But whether you visit us in person, or purchase our wine online, we hope you'll enjoy drinking a wine that speaks to the place you call home.
