Passport Day July 20th from 11:00 to 5:00!
For the first time, we are inviting guests to the location of our new winery facility at 21435 Summit Road, Los Gatos, for the Santa Cruz Mountains Winegrowers Association’s Summer Passport event on July 20th. Our new winery location at Candice Wozniak’s Redwood Ridge Estate is typically not open to the public, so this is a rare opportunity to visit this beautiful property and taste wines from not just us, but also Redwood Ridge Estate and Andersen Vineyard, while roaming the shockingly-beautiful vineyard and listening to live music.
There will be locally-made arts-and-crafts on display, light snacks, and live music from the Mystic Truebudoors (yeah, that’s how they spell it). Oh, and there will be abalone on the BBQ for a little while — FREE! Yeah, you read that right. Free abalone.
We will be pouring a huge lineup of our upcoming releases, current releases, and maybe some goodies from the library or barrel samples. For sure we will have:
2012 Bald Mountain Vineyard Chardonnay
2011 Split Rail Vineyard Chardonnay
2012 TANK’D Chardonnay
2012 Rosé of Pinot Noir, Split Rail Vineyard
2011 Corralitos Duet Pinot Noir
2010 Syrah, Hidden Mesa Vineyard
The winery is in a rustic old barn near the top of Candice’s 3 acre Pinot Noir and Pinot Grigio vineyard. The event will take place entirely outside, on the veranda outside the barn overlooking the vineyard, so dress for warm weather. Wear shoes that are made for walkin’ so you can roam a bit in the vineyard. You might find yourself driving/parking on dirt/gravel, so be prepared for that. Stay tuned to this page or our Facebook page for details about parking, etc.
From Santa Cruz, head up Hwy 17 and exit at Summit Road. Turn left over the freeway overpass (heading west toward Boulder Creek). Follow Summit Road approx 2 miles, making sure to stay to the right when the road forks. Look for our sign at the vineyard driveway.
From San Jose, exit Hwy 17 at Summit Road and hang a hairpin right up the hill to head west on Summit. Same as above for the rest of the way.
