Winery
Left Bend is a small local winery crafting distinctive wines from vineyards scattered throughout the Santa Cruz Mountains wine region. Visit us in downtown Los Gatos to taste our highly rated and award winning wines. Fiz Nat is our sparkling Rosé, done in an all natural fermentation Pet Nat style. Our 2016 Gali Vineyard Pinot Noir (93 Pts, Wine Enthusiast) bursts with Raspberry and spice and is typical of the Corralitos/Watsonville area. Our signature Mashup V5 (91 pts, Wine Enthusiast) is a Solera blend of Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon, containing 8 vintages, dating back to when we started the winery in 2010. And there are many more to explore! Our tasting fee is $15 and can be applied to bottle purchase. Cheers!

Fun place to grab a glass of wine and chat with a friend. Only drawback was the lack of heat. Next time, I’ll brings blanket. On a warm sunny day, this spot would be perfect. Just to be clear, there was no good option.

I went on Super Bowl afternoon when the whole place was empty, so it was quiet. The wines we tasted were really nice. Sufficient amount of attention paid to sanitation and COVID related hygiene.

We went to Left Bend winery yesterday afternoon. It was a great experience even with Covid! We were seated outside in the fresh air and the servers were very attentive and knowledgeable. We thoroughly enjoyed our wine and bought many bottles to take home!

The question about food is irrelevant because the tasting room is not offering food during the pandemic. Gary and team make excellent wine! The Chardonnay, Syrah are my favorites. I also tried the Morena...delicious.

Thanks

It was a crazy hot day but we really wanted to get out despite all the Covid blues. Left Bend happened to be open on Labor Day so we decided to try their wines. We were so pleasantly impressed with the service and the delicious wines! We appreciated the owner’s explanations of each wine and his gracious way of serving. They did a great job with Covid standards in such a way that was both safe and pleasant. We ended up buying several wines and plan to go back again soon.

Very nice place! A couple of the wines left me wanting, but overall an excellent experience, even in the pandemic! I liked that we felt properly socially distanced from other patrons.

Best wines for value in the valley. I am a member of only two wineries and this is one of them.

Better than you can expect under the pandemic situation. They follow all the directions, no human touch to the wine tasting. Perfect afternoon in Los Gatos, sipping wine and spending time with loved ones. The wine, of course, is as awesome as always.

Had amazing Left Bend wine in a safe outdoor setting! A big tent in front of Left Bend with safely spaced tables allowed me to enjoy fantastic wine without worry about COVID. the wine maker cafe to our table with a mask and we selected the wines we wanted and he brought them to us. Was great to get out of the house again! Will be back!
