Santa Cruz Mountains Wine Passport

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 more than 40+ participating wineries throughout the Santa Cruz Mountains  all year long during normal winery tasting room hours  – as well as on Passport Celebration Days.
