Our experience there was just perfect, and we would go back anytime. Despite it being very warm (107 degrees) and during times of COVID-19, Fortino staff made us very comfortable and safe. Gino, Kraig, and the other staff were fantastic in supporting that effort. The food was fresh, delicious, and very reasonably priced. The wine flights were awesome as well. I highly recommend a visit!
Love Fortino!! Excellent
We were a group of 5 and couldn’t have been more pleased spending a Sunday afternoon at Fortino Winery. The wine is exceptional and the Fruity Wine Floats were a special treat! The antipasto platter was a hit with our group and the pizza’s were very tasty. Had a great time!
Fantastic experience in the most unusual of times. We felt well-protected (and we did what we could to protect others by wearing our masks) in this absolutely crazy time
Need more food options but overall had a great experience
Beautiful grounds, amazing selection of wines, yummy food choices and great service! Premises are clean and the friendly staff adhered to safety measures perfectly! Loved our experience! Can’t wait to go back!
The scenery was beautiful and the service and food were great. The menu selections were delicious and the portions were substantial. Unfortunately the table closest to us (on the middle of the cement) kept yelling back and forth to a table about 20-30 feet away from them (on the grass). Fortunately it didn’t last for long. :) The only piece I would have liked to see added would have been some soft music. It was a lovely day and we will be doing it again! Thank you!
Thank you for all wearing masks while working all day. The main suggestion I have is for the friendly servers to take a few steps back if we start conversing. I try to put on my mask also when talking to the servers. i don't want things to close down again, and Fortino is a prime example of a safe place to go these day. I've been to 2 other winerys that serve food, and you are the best. One winery has good safety practices, and the other had people walking right by you without masks and the owners didn't do much about it. We won't go back to that one again! Thank you, you are helping us through this tough time.
I loved sitting outside, eating delicious food, served by friendly staff and sipping on Fortino wines! A perfect Sunday afternoon!
Wonderful way to spend a Sunday afternoon. The food,wine, and service were all excellent.
Atmosphere was great. Food was very delicious. Staff is extremely pleasant and the wine is always perfect!!!
This was our first winery experience for my husband & I since the pandemic began. It was so wonderful to sit at a table on the grass in the shade and enjoy some wine, along with Fortino’s delicious antipasto and flatbread. The staff members who checked us in and served us were very hospitable and happy to help us. The tables were set at very safely distances and all staff wore their masks. We felt comfortable and had no concerns about possibly contracting the virus there.
Best winery in Gilroy!!! Food is amazing!!
The social distancing parameters in place provide for a very safe outdoor experience. Food was limited but what we ordered was more than enough variety. The tomatoes in caprese salad were exceptional considering the early season for tomato harvest. Only downside was so bloody hot even at the nice shaded corner. Winery couldn't control that but if they were at capacity, I would pity the poor people sitting under the netting when temps are high and sun is hot...unless umbrellas are provided in addition. Overall a fantastic visit.
It was so nice to get out! It was safe, comfortable despite the heat, and the wine & food was delicious! We will be coming back for sure!
Great place! Would stop by again.
A wonderful afternoon with great wine and amazing food.
Great atmosphere and the prices are very reasonable. The food is tasty and pepper steak sandwiches were wonderful as was the service. Went back the next day for lunch and had an amazing chicken caesar salad. Their almond champagne is the very best.
Love this place! I want to go back next week! Jill and Brea are the best!! Member for 18yrs.
Great with social distancing and such a beautiful setting!
It was a perfect experience. Great Food. Great Wine. Great Customer Service.
Wonderful experience! Staff were very friendly, environment enjoyable and food was perfect!
The staff was very respectful of social distancing, the food and wine were great it was so nice to be able to be outside enjoying time with friends.
Great time !
Had a great time on the patio. Service was great, fast and food was delicious
Awesome time !
Had a very nice time.
The food, wine and staff was great! Beautiful evening out.
It was great to be back at the winery and enjoy the scenery and wine. Fantastic experience.
Very attentive service, they are so happy to be back!!
We had a very relaxing time, the atmosphere, the food and wine were excellent. The staff and the Fortino family were so welcoming. Thank you for having such a safe and healthy enviroment.
It was a very nice experience from check-in, to food and service. May I recommend more choices for food i.e., tri-tip sandwich or chicken salad. It was a beautiful day to listen to music and enjoy a glass of wine. Overall, a great experience.
such a pleasant afternoon. I am high risk and the way it was set up made for a perfect way to be able to get out and enjoy life and the wonderful setting
Had a wonderful outdoor dining experience. I would have rated all 10s but we were told you were all out of Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc which is our favorite to drink on a hot day. We will definitely go back.
There were a couple of customers who were walking around without masks. I find it disturbing and disrespectful when patrons do not follow safety protocol that are very clearly posted. Otherwise, great experience!!
Our server was very friendly, excellent. Our table was in a beautiful, shady area of the grass, safely far away from other diners. The food and wine were pretty good, but the chicken in the salad was dry. Overall, it was an enjoyable, positive experience.
More food choices. But overall is a good experience for our first visit.
Being so far from anyone is not as much fun. (Staff were all awesome) pasta was wonderful! Let’s do it agsin!
