PREMIER CRUZ – A Mountain Cabernet Experience

November 1 @ 6:00 pm - November 30 @ 10:00 pm

This event is not to be missed! Join us for an exclusive evening of Cabernet tasting with twenty of our most distinguished Cabernet producers from the Santa Cruz Mountains at the historic Mountain Winery in Saratoga, CA .  Cabernet lovers will sip, sample and enjoy an array of new releases and hard to find library wines.  Also be prepared to bid on exclusive auction lot library wines, magnums, private winemaker tours and new releases at our silent auction. 

 Guest will also be able to dine on a wonderful menu prepared by Mountain Winery Executive Chef, David Sidoti. Sample menu includes Caprese salad, pasta, roasted salmon, beef tenderloin and mini desserts.   

Vintners in the Santa Cruz Mountains have been producing exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon’s since as early as the mid 1800’s. The Cabernets produced from the Santa Cruz Mountains have a distinct character and style that is original to this Mountainous region. In 1976 the Judgment of Paris wine tasting event helped to catapult Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignons onto the international stage when Monte Bello also known as Ridge Vineyards beat out classified Bordeaux estates like Château Mouton Rothschild, Château Montrose, Château Haut-Brion and Château Léoville-Las Cases in a blind tasting conducted by French wine experts.

A sample of participating wineries include: Ridge Vineyards, Kathryn Kennedy, House Family Winery, Fernwood Cellars, Beauregard Vineyards, Black Ridge Vineyards, Clos Tita Winery, Cooper-Garrod Estate Vineyards, Mount Eden Vineyards, Silver Mountain Vineyards, The Mountain Winery, Thomas Fogarty Winery and Burrell School Vineyards.
