Santa Clara Valley has a very long history of grape growing and winemaking that dates to the days of the Spanish Missions. Santa Clara Wine Country has many things going for it, including a favorable climate, good soil and proximity to the population centers of the Bay Area. Most of Santa Clara Valley Wine Country has long since lost its agricultural heritage, and has undergone commercial and residential development. A handful of Santa Clara Valley Wineries and vineyards are continuing this proud winemaking heritage.
The Southern end of the Santa Clara Valley is dotted with small independently owned family vineyards. Many of these vineyards are farmed and managed by the Medeiros Family. From the Coyote Valley on down through Morgan Hill, San Martin, and Gilroy, The Medeiros Family farms these vineyards to produce quality fruit for their premium wine portfolio. The varietals currently under our wing include: Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Chardonnay, Malbec, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Petite Sirah, and old vine Zinfandel.
2005 through 2012 was spent successfully building the wine portfolio and reputation of a successful local winery. Tammie and I broke away in July of 2012 to forge our own path in the wine industry, creating our own label, Medeiros Family Wines, and adopting the compass logo as a symbol to guide us on that journey. Quality vineyards, Quality wines, Quality service, integrity, not just our passion, it’s what we do.
Medeiros Family Wines utilize sustainable vineyard practices to help preserve our agriculture heritage. Both traditional and modern wine making techniques are employed in vineyard and canopy management, fermentations, and cellaring to offer wines of varietal quality and character.
