Kirigin Cellars is one of California’s oldest wineries. They are little-known but have been an enduring part of California’s wine country since 1916. They are located fewer than 30 miles south of downtown San Jose.
Kirigin Valley is one of the most delightful morsels of Santa Clara County: 33 acres of rolling vineyards, nine acres of cricket lawns, over 1000 rose bushes and 100 redwood sequoias are surrounded by hills and rangeland. Their old buildings and wine-tasting areas, as well as their new Tuscan-style Club House building, exude old-world charm.
Since its inception, family-owned Kirigin Cellars has maintained its tradition of offering an unpretentious wine-tasting experience, and old-fashioned hospitality. They handcraft small batches of exquisite wines from grapes grown in their vineyards. They cultivate 11 different wine grapes—Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Malvasia Bianca, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Petite Sirah, Malbec, Tempranillo and Zinfandel—which they crush within hours of picking during each harvest.
