Hecker Pass/Gilroy food and wine?

Carb Lover | Jan 5, 200506:12 PM

Recently drove from Santa Cruz through Hecker Pass to land in Gilroy (I confess: went to the outlets). Love that drive, although it can be treacherous in winter, but the trees were covered in a velvety green moss and ferns dotted the shaded, woodsy hillsides. Reminds me to be thankful for rain...

Noticed a few wineries along the way. A couple had signs for tasting hours. Anyone know more about these places? The next Napa/Sonoma? Worth a stop?

One of my favorite things about driving through Gilroy is the inescapable garlic aroma that fills the air. Love the stuff. What are some good general restaurants in the area? Even better if they feature their prized garlic. THANKS!
