We invite you to come and explore! The Santa Cruz Mountains wine region is nestled in one of the most unique natural environments in the world. With its mountainous terrain, marine and valley influences, varied micro-climates, and diverse soils the Santa Cruz Mountains offers our vintners the ideal place to grow high quality grapes and to produce some of the world’s most distinct and terroir driven wines.
The Santa Cruz Mountains Appellation encompasses more than 850 square miles beginning from San Francisco down the Peninsula to Silicon Valley and Gilroy over to Watsonville, Monterey Bay and back up to Santa Cruz and Half Moon Bay. Due to the size of the Santa Cruz Mountains wine region it is often useful for our visitors to plan their trip by winery hours of operation, sub-regions or by urban winery locations.

Quality is Timeless!
In making great wine there can be no compromises. For me this holds true in both ingredients and process. My approach has always been about staying in control at every step to produce a product that is exceptional at every sip. We only make wine from grapes we grow. This hand crafted approach is what elevates our wines into a very distinguished category. I invite you to come visit us for a tasting and to experience first hand our approach and passion for making great wine. Cheers!Matt Oetinger Winemaker
