Woodside Vineyards is the oldest operating winery in San Mateo County, making wines reflecting the Santa Cruz Mountains terroir. Our grapes are grown in Woodside, Portola Valley and Los Altos Hills and include some vines over a century old. All grapes are hand-picked and sorted into small lot production requiring minimal processing and gentle handling to ensure the highest quality of wine. 

Our premium Cabernet wines come from the legendary La Questa vines first planted by E.H. Rixford in 1884. When other California wine producers were selling their wines in bulk, Rixford cultivated his La Questa vines that were hand-carried from France to produce wine in the tradition of the famed Château Margaux winery. In 1915, his wine won a Gold Medal at the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in San Francisco. The richness of Rixford's tradition is still evident in the premium estate grapes hand-crafted in the wine we produce today.

We are now open for tastings from 12:00-4:00 every Saturday and Sunday at our new San Carlos location. We will also have Special Event Weekends.
