Welcome to the Santa Cruz Mountains!

Four times a year, the winegrowing community of the Santa Cruz Mountains comes together to celebrate the generations of farmers, vintners and families that are the roots of this unique Mountainous region.

On the third Saturday of January, April, July and November, Passport aficionados are welcomed into 50 wineries throughout the Santa Cruz Mountains, each offering a unique winery experience. The possibilities are as varied as the wineries themselves and promise a fun, unforgettable experience. Enjoy!
