THE SILICON VALLEY WINE COMPANY
As the name suggests, The Silicon Valley Wine Company is located in the heart
of the high-tech world. But long before it became famous as Silicon Valley, the Santa
Clara Valley was one of California’s oldest, best known wine regions.
Owners Jason and Janu Goelz created the SVWC to marry that rich wine-growing
history to today’s forward-looking tech enterprises. The resulting fun, hip projects,
apps, and bottlings are redefining the area’s 160+ year old wine industry.
SILICON VALLEY WINE CO. PORTFOLIO & PROJECTS
Jason-Stephens is Silicon Valley’s winery. Under the J-S banner, Jason and Janu Goelz
craft traditional Bordeaux varietals as well as their “Tech Series” releases: ONESandZEROS (a Syrah and Zinfandel blend) and Pixelated (a dry Rosé). Partnering with top vineyards, J & J creatively blend to highlight pure varietal character and “palate expanding” flavor. The winery’s popular tasting room is located just minutes south of San Jose’s tech centers in The Stomping Ground development.
The Stomping Ground
In 2016, Jason and Janu Goelz, in partnership with Tim Slater (Sarah’s Vineyard), purchased a vacant industrial property in Gilroy, on Brem Lane, just off Highway 101. They named the sprawling, seven acre site “The Stomping Ground” and immediately began transforming it into a wine production, cellaring, storage, and fulfillment facility; plans also call for hospitality operations with multiple tasting rooms, food vendors, and entertainment. TSG currently houses the Jason-Stephens Winery and tasting room, CWS Beverage, a transportation and warehousing company, and Phenix Wine Distributors, a wholesaler. TheStompingGround.com
