One of California’s oldest wineries
Welcome to Kirigin Cellars
We are little-known but have been an enduring part of California’s wine country since 1916. We are located fewer than 30 miles south of downtown San Jose.
Kirigin Valley is one of the most delightful morsels of Santa Clara County: 33 acres of rolling vineyards, nine acres of cricket lawns, over 1000 rose bushes and 100 redwood sequoias are surrounded by hills and rangeland. Our old buildings and wine-tasting areas, as well as our new Tuscan-style Club House building, exude old-world charm.
Since its inception, family-owned Kirigin Cellars has maintained its tradition of offering an unpretentious wine-tasting experience, and old-fashioned hospitality. We handcraft small batches of exquisite wines from grapes grown in our vineyards. We cultivate 11 different wine grapes—Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Malvasia Bianca, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Petite Sirah, Malbec, Tempranillo and Zinfandel—which we crush within hours of picking during each harvest.

Enjoy The View
Our winery has a long history and also has a bright future.
Kirigin was founded in 1916 by the Bonesio Family and was called Uvas Winery.
The current owner bought the property in 2000 from the Kirigin Family and has made vast improvements to bring the winery up to date.
The wine. The staff. The facilities. The property. Four things that make this property unique.
