Why We Like This Place

Set high up in the Saratoga foothills, this historic winery has wonderful sweeping views of the entire Silicon Valley. Amazingly, it only takes 15 minutes to drive here from the valley, and once you arrive, you’ll be delighted with everything you see on the mountaintop.

The two main buildings on the property, the Historic Winery Building and the Chateau, were constructed in 1905 by French winemaker Paul Masson. Both are fashioned of stone masonry, and represent fine examples of French country architecture. Masson lived in the Chateau, where he often entertained guests like John Steinbeck, Charlie Chaplin and Ansel Adams, who took many of the black & white photos on display. Host your own event here, and you’ll understand why this place has always attracted such prestigious visitors.

If you’re planning a large indoor event, like a fundraising gala, wedding reception or casino night, reserve the ivy-covered Winery Building. Its stone walls and fragrant oak casks give the space a delicious, Old World ambiance. Outdoor ceremonies, champagne receptions and wine tastings are held in the Vista Point area, a tranquil slate patio bordered by trees and lush landscaping.

Expecting a crowd? The perfect spot is the Chateau Deck, an expansive terrace at the edge of the crest. Flanked by oak trees, it provides a view of the valley that will take your breath away. If you need a theater setting for your event, the Amphitheater is seasonally available. It has a stage with a striking backdrop: the stone portal of a San Jose cathedral that crumbled in the 1906 quake.

This venue is so versatile you’re bound to find an area that fits your needs. In addition, corporations looking for team building programs will appreciate the innovative packages available, including gourmet cooking, historical tours and wine classes.

The Mountain Winery has expanded its scope since its early days as a family winery, but still offers the same beauty and serenity that enchanted Paul Masson when he first came here over a century ago.
