Gulp and Gallop: A Day at the Cooper-Garrod Winery and Garrod Farms

CGV

If Los Gatos folks need wines and equines, then the Cooper-Garrod Winery is a one-stop solution and a phenomenal way to spend an entire day.

The 128-acre estate vineyards sprawl and plunge down the hillsides, giving those who bring a picnic lunch an incredible view to enjoy along with the wine(s) purchased in the rustic tasting room. The winery produces viognier, chardonnay, cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc and syrah, and also makes blends under the Cooper-Garrod label and the all-new Test Pilot label. Tasting fees are $5 to $10 dollars.

Along with the spectacular wines are the horses. The stables located adjacent to and behind the tasting room feature horses of all shapes, sizes and abilities. Additionally, horses and ponies are available to ride on a number of different tour packages (including group rate specials) offered by Garrod Farms. And Buttercup, Simba and Pumpkin the ponies await any aspiring cowpokes younger than eight years of age for guided tours, too.

On the last Saturday of every month, the Wine Tasting Ride is offered ($80 per person) and enjoys an hour-long trail ride with a mini-buffet and wine tasting ready for those who are hungry and thirsty after moseying along the gorgeous trails surrounding the estate.
