About Tasting House:
After a life-changing visit to a small cheese shop in southern France, we decided to bring that experience home to Los Gatos. We opened Tasting House in January 2022 with the aim of making quality food and wine pairings part of daily life.
Since opening, we have been recognized as Best New Restaurant in Los Gatos and Best New Restaurant in Silicon Valley, and we were awarded the Best of Excellence Award by Wine Spectator in 2022 and 2023.
Tasting House is multi-faceted with three core businesses: Our Tasting Bar (restaurant), Champagne Bar, and our e-commerce site featuring artisan cheeses, quality wine, and bean-to-bar chocolates.
