Welcome to the new blog site for the Friends of the Winemakers.

Friends of the Winemakers is a non-profit corporation whose purpose is to preserve the history of winemaking and the enjoyment of wine in the Santa Clara Valley and the Santa Cruz Mountains; to share the knowledge with others; and to stimulate interests about vineyards, varieties of wine, and the process of wine production.

Each month we schedule a wine oriented activity. Some of these involve visits to local wineries and tastings in support of the Santa Clara Valley and Santa Cruz Mountains wine industry. We help non-profit organizations with volunteer assistance by pouring wine at their events. More ambitious projects to further knowledge and history of local wines will be undertaken as resources permit.

On this site you will find information about our organization and links to our member wineries.
