Thomas Fogarty Winery




What began as a pastime is today the Thomas Fogarty Winery and Vineyard, one of the San Francisco Peninsula's most respected wineries located in the historic grape growing region of the Santa Cruz Mountains. The 325-acre estate situated on a mountaintop has sweeping views of the San Francisco Bay Area. Accommodating up to 216 guests, Thomas Fogarty Winery is an intimate, elegant, and relaxing setting for your special day. Surrounded by vineyards and a beautifully landscaped lawn, the rustic redwood reception facility flows down the mountainside on three separate levels, each exposed to stunning views. The 4,000 square foot Pavilion overlooks the pampered Chardonnay vineyard with vines that seem like they stretch for miles. The Hill House and its adjoining Terrace, handcrafted with Redwood panels, tiles, and hardwood floors is the perfect setting for an evening reception. The Terrace has glass panels lined on runners, allowing it to be closed off on cooler days without sacrificing the famous view. With a venue that provides such a unique and romantic setting, it is easy to understand why so many couples have chosen Thomas Fogarty Winery as the place to begin the rest of their lives together.
