“+ outstanding white and red wines!!!, + nice staff, + charismatic vintner, + scenic outlook”

Burrell School Vineyards & Winery
Ranked #12 of 29 things to do in Los Gatos
Attraction details
Reviewed 15 November 2012

This winery in the Santa Cruz Mountains is still a hidden gem and their wines barely make it out of the Bay Area since they are so popular in the vicinity.

After coming here for several wine tastings I had to sign-up for their wine club since all their wines are superb. Whether you like crisp or smooth whites or fruity or heavy reds Burrell has it all.

One of my personal favorites is the Old School wine that goes perfect with pasta dishes.

Besides the great wines the location is unique. Burrell is located within a historic school building on Summit Road (at HWY 17). From the patio you have a scenic view over the vineyard and Santa Cruz Mountains, a perfect location to enjoy a picnic.

The staff is fun to chat with and they really enjoy having you at the winery. Overall compared with other wineries in the area Burrell is one of the most joyful places to taste wines.

The hostess was friendly. The wine was good enough to buy. Some of the wine was good enough to buy. I had a case sent to the house. It is ready to drink and Thanksgiving is just weeks away. The place is cute and there is a lovely view.

The wines are good, and it really is an old rural school house. Sit out on the deck, enjoy the view and sample some very nice wines.

You meet the owners, try their wine and walk around - we found it on one of our Sunday drives.

Nice usage of an old schoolhouse, very friendly staff. Wine was good, and certainly worth a stop when doing a winery tour along Summit Road, however, not our first or second choice.
