La Honda? No, we are not referring to the Spanish/Japanese car manufacturer. La Honda Winery derives its name from the mountain town of La Honda where the winery grows its world famous Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese, just east of the Red Barn on the north side of Highway 84, west of Skyline Road in Woodside. Come and experience this inviting winery for yourself where old world craftsmanship is carefully combined with modern winemaking. The result is a flawless, fully flavored wine. The mild climate of Redwood City, the Santa Cruz Mountains, Woodside, Portola Valley, Atherton, Los Altos Hills and Saratoga, where La Honda grapes are grown on private vineyards, provides ideal growing conditions for year-round delicious wine.

Every crop is harvested by hand with a method intended to respect nature and enrich the soil for future harvests. This is one of the main reasons La Honda harvests clean fresh and healthy grapes that result in wines which are full of flavor.
