The Vibe: 
Roche Winery is one of the first wineries you encounter on Highway 128. It resides near the semi-famous Infineon Raceway. The winery itself has barn-like feel to it and they truly embrace the idea of being a "ranch" winery, even offering horseback tours of the vineyards. Roche has a very laid back and relaxed feel to it.

Picnic tables exist and Roche would be ideal for small groups looking for a quiet picnic spot. Public tastings are offered.
