San Martin Vineyards
San Martin Vineyards was a Santa Clara county wine producer run by the Filice family. The Filice company bought the San Martin Vineyards in 1932. The company was in existence through most of the 20th century, finally disappearing after damage from a 1984 earthquake disrupted their winery.
The company had a warehouse in the former Virden Packing and Sainte Claire Brewery at the corner of Auzerais St. and Lincoln Ave. That building appeared in a 1950's lawsuit when a freight door fell on an employee of a tenant of the building
