The Santa Clara Valley Wineries are a hidden treasure of 33 fine wine growers of various wines, champagnes, and dessert wines without the crowded tourists of the Napa Valley. Many hostess chefs, with small bistros and events such as wine, dine and dance or just sit and enjoy the quiet vineyard outdoors with family and friends.

The event will start with a drive trail tour through downtown Morgan Hill to allow members the opportunity to feel the small town appeal of outdoor causal dining and shopping boutiques. The drive trail tour will proceed south to start the relaxing country road drive throughout Morgan Hill, San Martin and Gilroy seeing many of the Santa Clara Wineries.
