The Thomas Fogarty Winery is a perfect place to spend an afternoon wine-tasting, sightseeing, or hosting your wedding or special event. Our stunning mountaintop location, located between San Francisco and the Silicon Valley, offers stunning views along with award-winning wines that highlight the best of the Santa Cruz Mountains Appellation.

Since 1981, the Thomas Fogarty Winery has been making single vineyard Pinot Noirs, Chardonnays and Cabernets that have helped lead the revival of the SCM appellation.

2005 Santa Cruz Mountains Lexington Meritage
Grown at the Camel Hill Vineyard 800 feet above the Lexington Reservoir in Los Gatos, this blend of cabernet sauvignon and merlot has the forestry feel of the Santa Cruz Mountains. While oak plays a major role in the wines flavor and structure, the fruit remains primary, the focus on luscious black berry flavors. Its supple, harmonious and finely made, a delicious red to pour with braised pork shoulder.

2005 Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon
(Best Buy)
Naturally low yields in 2005 allowed this cabernet to reach a cool, refreshing ripeness. Its dark purp le fruit contains the firm, cherry-pit bitterness of grape tannins, making the wine a little hard and austere in its youth. At five years of age, this is still bright and lively, the only sign of evolution a hint of mushroom on the finish, predicting the complexities that will develop with age.
