GILROY • MORGAN HILL • SAN MARTIN Founded:   2017    As a builder, I have found creating and constructing with my own hands so fulfilling. I get this from my Grandfather, who in Portugal, was a rancher and a winemaker. My love of creating along with my passion for my heritage has led me to winemaking as a homage to my Grandfather in his style—big, bold, flavorful.»                                    Most Celebrated Wine Most Celebrated Wine 72 6500 Brem Lane Gilroy • 408.744.6725  jwinstonwinery.com   Our most celebrated wine is our 2015 Reserve Meritage. Our Meritage is 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot. It has been placed in multiple local restaurants. It is a well balanced big, bold, red. Future Plans  As one of the newest wineries in the area we plan to continue to grow on The Stomping Ground and producing the best wine possible. Our focus will stay on crafting big and bold red wines. Founded: 2008 “​We creatively blend to highlight pure varietal character and “palate expanding” flavor. Our goal is to create well-balanced wines that maintain bold flavors and seamless textures.” Jason Goelz, Owner/Winemaker Most Celebrated Wine Our Cabernet Sauvignon is a favorite among our visitors in the tasting room as well as nationally. It is typically blended with five varietals giving the wine more depth, complexity, and balance. Future Plans  Our future plans include hosting fun events, in conjunction with the three other wineries located at The Stomping Ground. We look forward to Fall Passport Month when we will host live music every weekend.   AUGUST/SEPTEMBER 2018 gmhtoday.com
