About usKirigin Cellars is one of California’s oldest wineries. We are little-known but have been an enduring part of California’s wine country since 1916. We are located fewer than 30 miles south of downtown San Jose.
Kirigin Valley is one of the most delightful morsels of Santa Clara County: 33 acres of rolling vineyards, nine acres of cricket lawns, over 1000 rose bushes and 100 redwood sequoias are surrounded by hills and rangeland. Our old buildings and wine-tasting areas, as well as our new Tuscan-style Club House building, exude old-world charm.
Since its inception, family-owned Kirigin Cellars has maintained its tradition of offering an unpretentious wine-tasting experience, and old-fashioned hospitality. We handcraft small batches of exquisite wines from grapes grown in our vineyards. We cultivate 11 different wine grapes—Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Malvasia Bianca, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Petite Sirah, Malbec, Tempranillo and Zinfandel—which we crush within hours of picking during each harvest.
Our spectacular, historic winery opens its creaky doors daily at 10:00 a.m., and we remain open until 5:00 p.m. for visitors to enjoy complimentary wine tasting. Our beautiful property is also available for picnics and tours.
