Wow Wow Wow.
I don't have enough room, for all the wonderful things I could say about
The newest winery to open in Santa Clara county, with the best views and hospitality, imaginable! When you are surrounded by 21 acres of gorgeous grape vines and panoramic views, you don't want to be stuck indoors. So they have built a beautiful open air Ramada, complete with a long bar and delightfully large, outdoor heaters.
With numerous award winning releases, you can't go wrong in picking any. Whether you choose to buy a few bottles to take home or stay awhile and sip under the oak tree, your experience will keep you coming back.
Plus they have a wine club (join here) and don't let your glass go empty.
Church Creek Cellars prides themselves and their work, on the individual attention given to each plant. They believe that when you grow, nurture and hand pick a plant for production, you have the ability to select at the peak of ripeness for the overall style of wine they are trying to achieve.
They believe in the "vine-to-bottle" approach, something we in California know very well.. as "farm-to-table" has become increasingly popular in the last few years. The idea behind it, in it's most honest form, is that all parties involved in the process complete production in the most raw and natural way possible. No middlemen, no marketers, no distributors. You will meet the wine making team, and they are happy to walk you through their journey with each and every plant.

Cooper has been working around the clock. Start ups often require you to wear multiple hats and multitask quite a bit.
Here he is shown as lead sommelier, earlier he was working as the official greeter and toast maker, and before that he was regulating the crowds as head of security.
So how do I know so much about this fabulous new winery??!
I actually had the honor of babysitting this (not so little) nugget of cuteness when she was a year old through age 12. Here she is working with her Dad (above) and standing taller than me (below)
Now, that's a reality check, let me go have a cry.
