What began as a pastime for a Stanford cardiovascular surgeon (who invented the first balloon catheter to be used therapeutically for heart patients), is today the Thomas Fogarty Winery and Vineyard, one of the San Francisco Peninsula’s most respected wineries.
Twenty five acres of Burgundian-style varietals are planted on the 325 acre estate, focusing on Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Few wine regions on earth can match the climates, soils and vertigo-inducing views of the Santa Cruz Mountains appellation. Situated at 2000 feet above sea level, the Fogarty winery offers a rare joining of great vineyard sites and sweeping panoramas of the San Francisco Bay area.
The winery is not too far from The Cottage. Stop in for a tasting, pick up a bottle and head back to The Cottage to sip in the backyard garden while listening to water flow.
Thomas Fogarty Winery – 19501 Skyline Blvd. Woodside. Tasting Room: Mon noon to 4 pm, Wed-Sun 11 am to 5 pm www.fogartywinery.com/
