Tasters sip samples from Santa Cruz Mountain Vineyard’s sister label, Quinta Cruz. These wines are created from grapes varieties that originated in Portugal and Spain and are now grown in California. During the event, winemaker and owner Jeff Emery educates his guests with information about each variety as it is poured. Participants can arrive anytime between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. to take part in the ongoing event.

Santa Cruz Mountain Vineyard

In 1975, Ken Burnap established Santa Cruz Mountain Vineyard with one goal in mind: to produce one of the best pinot noirs in California. Four years later he hired his protégé, Jeff Emery, who now runs the vineyard and ensures that it continues to produce award-winning pinots along with complex cabernet sauvignons petite sirahs. The staff makes the rounds of seven vineyards, where it cultivates traditional Californian grapes as well as varieties that originated in Spain and Portugal for its Quinta Cruz label.
