Jason-Stephens Winery to Relocate


Winery’s Popular Visitor Center Moving August 1 To “The Stomping Ground” Development in Gilroy.  

Jason-Stephens WineryGilroy, CA:   Local vintners Jason and Janu Goelz of Silicon Valley’s Jason-Stephens Winery announced today that they will be relocating their popular tasting room and production facility – from its current site on Watsonville Road to their new “The Stomping Ground” development, off Highway 101 in Gilroy.  August 1st is the target date to open the doors on the new JS visitor center.  “We still have a lot of work to do,” comments owner Jason Goelz. “But the construction phase is almost finished and then it’s just a matter of moving wine and equipment. We should be ready to go on the first of August.”

Jason and Janu, in partnership with Tim Slater (Sarah’s Vineyard) purchased a vacant, large industrial property three months ago, close to the Gilroy Premium Outlets and Gilroy Crossing Shopping Center.  They named the sprawling, seven-acre site “The Stomping Ground” and are transforming it into a wine production, cellaring, storage, and hospitality facility; Jason–Stephens Winery will be the first of several planned tasting rooms to open there.

Janu Goelz says “We’ve outgrown our current tasting room and cellar on Watsonville Road.  We’re very excited to introduce our loyal fans and club members to our new Jason–Stephens home at The Stomping Ground. The huge potential of the space there will allow us to offer a wider range of visitor options, as well as a more quality-driven cellar and winemaking operations.“

The Stomping Ground and the new Jason-Stephens Winery tasting room are located at 6500 Brem Lane in Gilroy, California.
