$20 for a Wine-Tasting Package for Two ($40 Value)

  • Two wine glasses
  • 20 wine-tasting tickets<p>

On Sunday, April 21, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., the Santa Cruz Mountains Winegrowers Association in Winchester gathers more than 20 Santa Cruz Mountains wineries to tout their wares. Guests exchange three to five tasting tickets for each sample, depending on the vendor, and can purchase bottles of their favorite wines to take home. As they peruse their sipping options, they can also purchase food from the booths of Santana Row restaurants and groove to music.

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. 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. They host weddings, festivals, and open events such as Pathway to Pinot Paradise, a self-guided tour of the pinot noir hotspots.
