Thomas Fogarty Winery

California, the most populous state of the United States, located on the Pacific coast of North America is bordered by Oregon, Nevada, Arizona and Mexico. California is also the home of and wine producing regions such as Santa Barbara and Northern California's Wine Country.
Thomas Fogarty Winery and Vineyard, is one of the San Francisco Peninsula's most respected wineries. A Stanford Cardiovascular Surgeon and world-renowned inventor, Thomas Fogarty took up home winemaking in the early 1970's in a small cabin on the current winery site. He planted his first grapes in 1978, and in 1981 established a commercial winery in the historic grape growing region of the Santa Cruz Mountains. The long, cool growing season and excellent sun exposure provide an ideal climate for these grape varieties.
The winery products include wines like, Blanc de Blanc that is deliciously crisp and fruity, this sparkler is fantastic alongside hors d’oeuvres or fruit dessert. Monterey Gewurztraminer that has become one of the signature wines of Thomas Fogarty Winery. It is always delightfully dry on the palate, but full of tropical fruit, white flowers and spice.  Chardonnay wine has a deep straw light golden colored hue and fresh lemon and a hint of chalk on the nose. Some very light cream and toast flavors accompany the luxuriously textured finish. Sangiovese hails from two of the few vineyard blocks of the Italian grape varietal in the entire Santa Cruz Mountain sappellation. Barbera is a notoriously high acid grape, the warm sierra foothills have proven to be a stellar area for this northern Italian varietal.

The winery is a double gold winner and has received best cabernet of show in 2002 Napa Valley Cabernet, in 2003 it was a gold medal winner for Santa Cruz chardonnay and in 2004 for Monterey Gewurztraminer. In 2003 for fat buck ridge Syrah and 2003 Late Harvest Gewurztraminer Gold Medal Winner.

Thomas Fogarty Wineries are one of the best in the wine business and are aware that quality is not accidental but by high intention and perseverance and are devoted to follow it on any backgrounds. It is one of the famous wineries in California that has grown through years of excellence and quality of the wines offered.
