We attended the Wine Tasting in Half Moon Bay and it was wonderful!!! Tried some really great wines and had a great time. The Oceano mall was a great location and I hope there are more events there. My only negative comment is that I would like to have enjoyed some cheeses, crackers and munchies with the wines. That said, we'll go back for the next one and are eagerly awaiting Passport on the 19th.

Nice venue. I appreciated the location and that it was not a street-fair type atmosphere. I would have liked to see more of the winegrowers there, and more food choices (maybe items that could be paired with the wine, such as cheese, etc.)

What You'll Get


Wine festivals introduce guests to delicious wines, provide exposure for wineries, and incur bottles for raucous recycling after-parties. Plan ahead with today’s Groupon to Half Moon Bay Food and Wine Fare, presented by the Santa Cruz Mountains Winegrowers Association in Half Moon Bay on November 5 from noon to 4 p.m. Choose between the following options:

  • For $9, you get a wine-tasting package for two (an $18 value), which includes the following:
  • Two wineglasses (a $10 value)
  • Eight tasting tickets (an $8 value)
  • For $16, you get a wine-tasting package for four (a $36 value), which includes the following:
  • Four wineglasses (a $20 value)
  • 16 tasting tickets (an $16 value)<p>

On November 5, more than 20 of the Santa Cruz Mountains wineries take to the Oceano Hotel & Spa’s Harbor Village Shops to dispense their wares for the Half Moon Bay Food and Wine Fare. Free admission welcomes all to the celebration, and wineries set up shop to pour mature grape juices and affix wine aficionados with temporary cork tattoos. With wineglasses, visitors turn into sip recipients, using their tasting tickets to secure single tastes of wines from vineyards such as Cinnabar Winery and Skov Winery (sips cost two to five tickets). Hunger incurred by vino sampling can find respite with local food vendors, and kid-friendly activities such as play-doh and introductory graffiti classes keep children entertained.

About Santa Cruz Mountains Winegrowers Association


At 2,600 feet up in the Santa Cruz Mountains, one might expect to find sprawling views of the ocean and surrounding forest and not flourishing vineyards. Yet there are more than 70 wineries dappling the hills at various altitudes, privy to the dewy, cooling breezes of the sea and the richness of the rocky soil which are represented by the Santa Cruz Mountains Winegrowers Association. The San Francisco Chronicle speaks to their scattered presence, deeming them "less a cohesive wine region than a patchwork of vineyards." Still, this characteristic isolation has resulted in "a perfect laboratory for winemaking not held hostage to fashion"—no one style dominates in this rustic setting.

Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays populate the western front, and the east yields Cabernets, Merlots, and Zinfandels. The majority of the vineyards are small and family owned—a fact reflected in their meticulously bottled libations and the matching sweaters of their holiday photos—but though they exist in chosen hermitage, many of them welcome visitors to their scenic sites. The SCMWA hosts events events such as Pinot Paradise - Picnic in the Park, where attendees can bring their own picnic and taste Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays from vintners of the Santa Cruz Mountains.
