Hero Ranch Estate Winery

Hero Ranch Estate Winery is the product of a longstanding family tradition. For many generations our family has been creating Wines and olive oil, in a small village called, Malandreni, located in the Peloponnese region of Greece. When I found this estate property in 2014, it was so familiar to me. It was as if someone took a piece of our estate in Greece and dropped it right into the Silicon Valley. In 2014 we planted approximately 5 acres of three varietals: Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir & Cabernet Sauvignon. All of our farming is done in the organic traditions of my forefathers, and each year my father comes in from Greece in order to prune and maintain our vineyards. For over 37 years my father was a Chemist in the Silicon Valley before retiring back to his home town village in Greece. Even at the age of 87 years, he makes it his mission to prune and oversee every vine on our estate. Just like a fine wine, he has aged gracefully and seems to get better with each passing year.

Our winery is a private estate. All tastings, tours and pairing events must be booked in advance by appointment or reservation only. We proudly and exclusively serve our wines at our estate and our Hero Ranch Kitchen Restaurant, located in Saratoga, California. Our wines are also available for purchase through our online Marketplace portal found on our website. In addition we host a monthly Dine in the Vines event where we offer 50 guests the limited and exclusive opportunity to try some amazing wines paired with a variety of local cuisines. Each event is choregraphed precisely between food and wine.

I have been working with our winemaker Adam Comartin for the past 5 years to create wines that center around my pallet for food and dining. Adam takes great pride in creating wines that pair with our cuisine, and more importantly represent a long standing stylistic tradition. We have done a great deal to create well balanced wines that represent the new world climate and an old world tradition.


Estate Red Blend

Almaden Valley

Our first ever Estate Vintage. We produced only two barrels. We decided to do something unique and created a blended red wine consisting of Estate Cabernet & Pinot Noir. This type of blend is unique in the sense that not many wine makers have tried. The rich and deep Pinot Noir produced from our single block paired with the Cabernet Sauvignon has created and amazing well balanced red with a full bodied finish.

Pinot Noir

Santa Clara Valley

This wine was created from the smallest block on our estate. It has been named Antonia's Vineyard after my youngest daughter. The characteristics of this wine are truly amazing. A gorgeous fruit forward bouquet with hints of black currant and berries. Finishes with well balanced old world touch.

Redline Reserve Cabernet

Napa Valley

This wine was named after the Horse "Redline" that started it all for me here at Hero Ranch Estate. These Grapes are sourced from Pope Valley and Atlas Peak & aged in French Oak for over 4 years. The finish is amazing. One of our best reserve vintage cabernets to date.
