About the Winery

Our wines | Our vineyards | Our team

coterie — noun.
A small group with shared interests or tastes.

Since 2007, Coterie has produced wines from tiny parcels within acclaimed vineyards that express the distinction of their place. We make every wine berry to bottle by hand with exceptional care in the vineyard and non-interventional practices at the winery. Our winery is nestled in a cozy neighborhood near downtown San Jose, a short walk from the SAP Center and The Historic Alameda. We're part of a movement of wineries locating back into urban areas to make fine wines within the communities in which we live.
