We were meeting people and had a little time and needed something close to the Airport which we just flew into. Found J. Lorh Winery on line listed close. It is around businesses and does not look like your typical wine tasting. No grapes or long winding drive more industrial which it is. They produce the wine here only. However the people we met and the wines we tasted were very good. We were not expecting a lot but learned J. Lorh has many more wines available which are not for sale outside CA and some only from the winery. The tasting was free for the first 5. My wife drank 5 whites which I tried and I drank the reds which she tired. We bought a few estate wines and very glad we stopped. You could hear the bottles rattling in the back and working people would come in which just added to the fun.

We were invited by friends to keep Saturday afternoon open for wine tasting at Lohr's before dinner. It was a real treat. There were four places at the end of the bar and a charming guy
to pour and discuss wines. A real pleasure and informative to boot.

Free tastings, fabulous wine, great hosts. What a hidden gem in San Jose! We were waiting for the perfect bottle of wine to bring home from our Napa/Sonoma trip and we were shocked to have found it here.

We're in San Jose for a few days and I found this winery on TripAdvisor. We walked from the St Claire about 1.8 miles each way. Friendly and knowledge staff and they offered several wines that are not available anywhere else. Must do!!!!

I arrived @ 4:00.m. on a Saturday to find the place packed. The friendly tasting room lead associate said it's slow from opening time to 4:00 on weekends, after which time it is always jammed. They had five people pouring. The bulk of those attending were wine club members.

Tasting FREE of a half dozen respectable wines at fair prices. I chose all reds. Staff friendly and efficient. Some of the usual souveniers for sale.

They also have winemaker dinners, cheese and wine pairings, chocolate and wine pairings. Worthwhile to get on their email list for notice of their numerous events.
