No food served so stars are for the wine which are very drinkable. Honest varietals and blends crafted to drink now. I joined the Sippers Club and look forward to quarterly visits to share time with these dedicated people.
Friendly staff, beautiful view and good wine.
The food rating is for the wine - Burrell School Vineyards doesn't serve food.
It was lovely to go out after such a long shelter-in-place. The tasting room/deck was spacious and all staff was careful with COVID protocols. It made enjoying their wonderful wines very easy!
I look forward to returning.
Steve was great, as always!
The owner is a personal friend and ex coworker of my husband. We have been coming here for years!
Absolutely love this place! The views and the amazing team working there, now that’s a pairing!
The outdoor tasting areas were raucous on a Saturday afternoon with multiple large parties that were so loud, we requested to move to the back porch twice to get away from them. Seating was pretty close (though likely just 6 feet apart), and patrons seemed to be in and out of their seats a bit. Not the most relaxing spot to enjoy your wine though the views were gorgeous in all directions and the wine was delicious as well. Tasting service at our table was erratic and sometimes slow, likely because the tasting room was busy.
Love this winery! I make sure to come here when I’m on summit road.
Great service, great wine, of course, and a beautiful setting. We bought five cases at a great price. Thanks Dave and staff!
Nice views, great service! $15 tasting, great value.
Amazing wine and incredible views! Friendly staff.
Beautiful views, great wines & service, and wonderful prices. Plus, bring your own snacks. This is a gem! Don't miss it!
This is by far our favorite local vineyard. Great wine, beautiful view, amazing people. We are partial to their Pinot and Cab Franc. They seat outside with heaters close by. It's pretty COVID safe and a lovely way to get out of the house and enjoy really, really good local wine.
Favorite winery with good prices and amazing wine
Friendly hosts, amazing wine and beautiful scenery.
One of my most favorite wineries!
We were warmly received. They served the wines to be tasted in a COVID safe manner and the wines were quite good. We received our shipment and got on our way. No food, of course.
It was great
Great service and great wine. Can't beat the views!
Lovely day wine tasting. Beautiful view and no other table near our family. Perfect.
Wine is good, service is excellent, setting/ambiance beautiful. We were there at sunset and the setting sun on the fall colored rolling vineyards and hills was absolutely awesome while sipping on wine.
Beautiful view and generous pours at Burrell School Vineyards!
Great views and amazing wine!! A must visit for sure!
Always spectacular people, wine and location.. we love our visits to Burrell School!
The food rating applies to the wine. It was a beautiful day and great service. Great value.
This is one of my favorite places to enjoy. I went at 4pm on Sunday and it couldn’t have been more fun and a beautiful time of day to stare out at the mountains. Great people and great wine.
Birthday- great personnel made the visit. Love the ambiance and the wine!
there's no food -- but it wouldn't let me review without ranking the food... love Burrell School!!
Great place to chill and enjoy soome wine with a spectacular view of the vinyard, mountains and when it's clear a view of the Monterey Bay.
Lovely wine tasting experience!
Burrell is one of several wineries on Summit Road in Los Gatos Hills. We went for a paid tasting Sat afternoon.
Access is a bit rough, as you drive up a gravel road to a small parking lot that is tough to navigate given the incline. As we walked up the winery, we saw a lot of equipment and wine barrels lying around -- some might consider this atmospheric, but it also gave a run-down look which didn't feel great.
As we walked up the stairs, a man came out and asked us gruffly if we had a reservation. We did and he pointed to where we were already going. Not a smile or a greeting. Very unprofessional. There is a patio with some tables to sit and look over the vineyard (and another seating area in a rose garden out back). They sat us in a corner near the entrance, which did not feel great. When we asked to be moved, they were unfriendly once again, saying the other table couldn't accommodate us, when it clearly could.
It was a hot day, and there was no shade to go around. The view was not bad, but they could have done more to make the patio more comfortable and viewing-friendly. Nonetheless, once the tasting started, we got more friendly hosts. They served us well, though without much context / discussion and often they would forget where we were in the tasting. Wines themselves were quite forgettable.
After the tasting, we walked around a bit, but there is not much to see, nor have they made any effort to make this visitor friendly. Out front, there is a sign about the historic school building, but no way to look inside to get more context.
All in all, it was an underwhelming experience. Place felt run down, people felt unfriendly, wines were ordinary. Only saving grace was that tasting was only $15/person, cheap enough for 5 tastings.
Won't be back here. Wrights Station and Loma Prieta are finer options in the same neighborhood.
Burrell school vineyards is beautiful peaceful and delicious
Such an amazing setting for the winery tasting room. The views will blow you away. The service is amazing as well.
Beautiful view, NO "food" service.. just wine tasting.
Loved everything at Burrell School. Lots of fun and even educational. Watched a wine punch down going on. Also enjoyed the school history.
Burrell is one of my favorite wine tasting places to go! The best is go up to summit market and get a Sandwich then sit and enjoy amazing red wine. The staff is always amazing and they have great prices. The school is open to look at. They have a new garden as well. Kid friendly also which is nice for us working ppl who can’t get away!
Beautiful scenery with good wines . Nice and friendly staff .Our first time here .
My GF and I decided to enjoy our Sunday during this Pandemic by taking an outing to a few wineries in the Santa Cruz Mountains. This was our second and final stop and also our first official visit to Burrell School. The reservation on Open Table was en easy process and an overall 5 Star experience. Our host/server wore a mask and was very polite. He went over out list with ease and strong knowledge on the wines. Also telling us about the history behind the school house on the property. I would definitely recommend this conveniently placed winery to all my friends and family. You can bet we will be back for more wining!
Excellent place for a mid-afternoon wine tasting stop on the weekend.
Burrell school on a summer afternoon is a great place for wine tasting and relaxation but remember to bring your own cheese and salami.
I only rated food low so I could move on. They did not serve food. But everything else was great! Friendly, welcoming, good wine and terrific view on a beautiful day. We couldn't have asked for more
