Where We Serve: San Jose

San Jose

With an average of 300 days of sunshine, it’s no wonder that San Jose has been named as the happiest, healthiest, and smartest city in America.  Where Silicon Valley meets Spanish history, San Jose is home to many technology museums, art galleries, and beautiful gardens.  Our love for organic food and the latest food trends provides our community with a multitude of culinary experiences, in addition to our wonderful community dinner nights.  The Santa Clara Valley is also California’s oldest wine growing region, long before Napa made it on the map. We are thankful to be able to share our wonderful city with the nearby communities of Sacramento and Oakland.
