Tastings at the Winery

Wine tastings are regularly offered on the 3rd Saturday & Sunday every month from 12 – 4pm. We are occasionally open on additional weekends for special events, wine releases and wine club pick-ups.

Visit us and taste our wines with husband and wife winemaking team John and Katharine, who are always eager to share their story and wines in a relaxed atmosphere in the winery among the barrels. Our winery is located 3 miles north of downtown Santa Cruz and features beautiful bay and mountain views.

Named as one of the "8 Best Santa Cruz Wineries for Visitors" - by the California Winery Advisor
