Join us at Garrod Farms for an hour-long guided horseback trail ride thru our vineyards and into the beautiful Saratoga Foothills with views overlooking the Silicon Valley. Then mosey over to our tasting room for wine tasting and a mini brunch buffet. No previous riding experience required! This wonderful experience is offered on the last Sunday of every month. $90 per person, reservations required by noon the Friday before, and based on space available. Pre-payment is due at the time of the reservation. Call the Stables Office to book, at (408) 867-9527. Long pants and closed toed shoes required; no heels or sandals, etc., allowed. Helmets will be provided.
We’ll walk into one of organic vineyards to discuss the growing cycle then continue through the crush pad, tank farm, and barrel room as we discuss wine: grapes to glass. This is your chance to ask what's current in the process. Finish up in the tasting room to see what comes of it all! The tour is complimentary; $15 tasting fee for a flight of current releases.
It’s the seventh season of Music at the Vineyards!
Spend your Sunday afternoon sipping wine in the fresh air under beautiful, old trees, listening to music like it's a private little concert just for a select group - which is exactly what this IS! Bring some cheese and crackers, or a picnic, buy a bottle of wine, and enjoy the afternoon. The series continues through the fall. Please note ABC regulations do not allow outside alcoholic beverages, which means only Cooper-Garrod wines purchased on site may be consumed. Thank you for cooperation.
