Christopher Ranch celebrates 60th with elegant California hillside soiree

pere

GILROY, CA — Garlic wasn't the only aroma in the air as Christopher Ranch recently celebrated 60 years as one of the nation's top providers of "the stinking rose" — the smell of success hung sweet as well (along with a whole lot of barbecue).

From mayors to garlic festival queens, Gilroy turned out to celebrate at the ritzy Rosewood CordeValle, tucked away in the San Martin, CA, hills near the garlic capital.

Fun fact: Christopher Ranch didn't even start out in the garlic business — the family originally grew prunes. Wiser heads obviously prevailed and the rest is history.
