About Testarossa Winery

Step back into history at the 19th century Novitiate, home to the acclaimed Testarossa Winery, where state of the art winemaking and traditional tools combine into the state’s best California Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.

Read More

Testarossa Winery is located in the historic Novitiate in downtown Los Gatos and is one of the oldest continuously operating wineries in California. Rob and Diana Jensen started Testarossa in their garage in 1993 with just twenty-five cases of wine. Today, the winery works closely with top winegrowers in the Santa Lucia Highlands, Santa Rita Hills, Arroyo Grande Valley, Santa Maria Valley, Russian River Valley, Chalone and Santa Cruz Mountains appellations.

Testarossa offers multiple wine experiences in this beautiful historic setting from a tour and tasting for beginners to Testarossa University for those eager to increase their wine knowledge. Our Los Gatos location also offers specialty tastings including the Wine & Cheese Experience and Salon Tastings hosted by a Testarossa Wine Educator.

There are several ways to enjoy this exquisite property, including the popular Wine Bar 107, the Club Members Lounge, and the exclusive JRS Terrace for Platinum and Jensen Reserve Society members only. Reservations are no longer available. Please check in at the Welcome Centers on weekends.

Testarossa Winery has been consistently voted Best Local Winery by the San Jose Mercury News since 2011.

We are only closed three days a year: Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's. Tasting rooms in Los Gatos are open daily from 11am to 5pm; and in Carmel Valley from 12pm - 5pm on Sunday - Thursday and 11am - 6pm Friday and Saturday.

Salon Wine Tasting (Los Gatos) on 6/03/18 1:30 PM

I took my boss and his family here and had such a wonderful experience. Very happy that they had upgraded us from Salon Wine Tasting to Wine and Cheese tasting for free (Initially we had bought the wine & cheese but the code did not go through for some reason so I had to improvise.) So I was very happy to hear that they had upgraded us. Michael was a wonderful tour guide and a great host!

The winery is beautiful. It has a great history and lovely views. It's a nice place to have a glass of wine with a picnic basket of goodies.

Los Gatos Salon Experience on 5/06/18 1:30 PM

Experienced their Salon tasting in a private room, on the floor above the tasting room. Enjoyed walking through the active cellars and the host was quite knowledgeable about the wines we tasted. Definitely recommend the Salon tasting if you have a demanding palette for their select wines.

Los Gatos Wine and Cheese Experience on 5/05/18 2:00 PM

We had a small group tour with a cheese pairing at the end. Our guide was AMAZING and was super knowledgeable. I'm personally not a huge wine person and this was my first time at a winery. The grounds are beautiful and the history was so rich. I loved it. I would 100% come again and enjoy the appetizers.

The JRS Terrace at Testarossa is an extremely nice privilege for the JRS members. I like going up there to meet outer JRS members, some of whom have become good friends. One request: Bring back the bread and dips..

Los Gatos Wine and Cheese Experience on 4/14/18 2:00 PM

Testarossa Winery was a great experience. I went with a group of my friends for my birthday and everyone had a wonderful time. The history and technical tour of the winery was very interesting, we learned a lot. The actual wine tasting was lovely with a private table to enjoy our cheese and wine.
