Testarossa was originally built by Jesuits in 1888. Eventually, it was sold to a red head, and thus it's name. Our sommelier was attentive, friendly and knowledgeable. The Testarossa grounds are a beautiful place to relax, and there is even live music some evenings.

There is handicap parking at the top of the road and it is flat into the tasting area, so a wheelchair or walker could easily get into the tasting room.

They have meat and cheese platters with some salad. Not an extensive menu but things to pair with wine. Lots of restaurants down the hill in Los Gatos. Search winebar107 menu to see the offerings.
