Passport Day at La Honda Winery

Winery Open Day & Vintage Release Party

Saturday, January 19th, 12 – 4pm
A wet winter is a perfect time to nestle up with dear friends
and heartwarming wine. That sounds delightful, though maybe a little ‘Hallmark Channel’.
How about some kick ass whacks of big and bold berrytastic bursts of mouthwatering marvelousness? Too Hollywood blockbuster?
How about a sensual swathe of saucily sexy scrumptiousness? Maybe that’s the wrong channel too….
No matter, leave the remote alone and join us for fun and fine wine at the 2019 premiere where 2014 Lonehawk will be making its delicious debut.

Four times a year, on the third Saturday of January, April, July and November, 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. The possibilities are as varied as the wineries themselves and promise a fun, unforgettable experience.

With your SCM Wine Passport (available in physical form or on the SCM mobile App) you can visit participating wineries 365 days per year during winery hours of operation as well as on Passport Celebration Days. Passport holders are welcomed into more than 40+ participating wineries throughout the Santa Cruz Mountains, to redeem a tasting flight.
