Passport Celebration Days!

Passport Days to the Santa Cruz Mountains was introduced in 1993, by the Winegrowers of 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. Please use the Passport booklet with map as a rough guide to over 50 wineries of the Santa Cruz Mountains American Viticulture Area (AVA).

On the third Saturday of January, April, July and November, Passport aficionados are welcomed into 50+ participating 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 day. Enjoy!

About Passport Days:

Passport Days is your opportunity to meet the legendary winemakers of the Santa Cruz Mountains. Use the map in the Passport as a rough guide only.
