Come join us for lunch and wine tasting this weekend in Milpitas! Yes, Milpitas. Big Dog Vineyards is an awesome estate up in the Milpitas hills that has an extraordinary view of the Bay Area, including the San Francisco Skyline, San Jose, and the bay.

The house specialties are red wines, but their Chardonnay and Port is amazing too. The place is dog-friendly, so feel free to bring the pup along!
