The man explaining all the wines was really sweet. He owns the winery and spent a lot of time explaining the wines and answers questions for us. "There are no dumb questions." Great experience.

What You'll Get

While one may be tempted to improve a bottle of wine by placing it in a time machine, thereby expediting its aging process, it only creates a paradox when the wine accidentally drinks its own grandfather. Avoid the pitfalls of temporal logic with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get admission for two to an exclusive pinot noir tasting (a $50 value) at Santa Cruz Mountain Vineyard in Santa Cruz. Choose between the following dates:

• Saturday, July 23, between noon and 5 p.m.
• Sunday, July 24, between noon and 5 p.m.

For more than 35 years, the viticultural wizards at Santa Cruz Mountain Vineyard have tilled the range’s unique soil to create European-style wines worthy of decades in the cellar. In exclusive tastings for Groupon customers, the winery uncorks some of its favorite and rarest vintages from its own vault. While Santa Cruz's own 2001 Reserve Estate pinot noir represents one of this year's retail releases, three special wines from the winery's cellar anchor the tasting, including archived bottles from the vineyard’s 1985 and 1989 vintages and the 2004 Bella’s Reserve, born the same year as the winemaker’s daughter and designed to age well for two decades while living among the wolves.

In addition to the exclusive samples, customers receive access to Santa Cruz Mountain Vineyard's regular tasting bar, where oenophiles can sample any of the normal varieties and perform glass-harmonica concertos. Enjoy a 15% discount on any purchases made during the tasting.

About 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.
