Fortino Winery & Event Center

South Bay



Nestled in the Gilroy hills, Fortino Winery & Event Center was established in 1970 when the Fortino family purchased the vineyard. The quaint winery offers two distinct, spectacular event spaces.
True to the name, the Redwood Terrace is a large cement patio edged by an open grass area and rimmed by larger-than-life redwoods that sit on a sloping, vine-covered hillside. The Barrel Room can also be transformed into a romantic, intimate indoor venue. Formerly a home to aging red wines in American and French Oak barrels, the room, with a Tuscan ambiance, is now open for romantic events. Studded with powerful, large redwood doors and an amazing vaulted ceiling, the space is ready to be transformed.
