This Saturday marks the return of the Santa Cruz Mountain Winegrowers Association Passport Days. The annual celebrations originally started in 1993 (meaning the event is in its 25th year!) by winegrowers of the Santa Cruz Mountains.
During this beloved weekend those with a passport in hand will have access to unique events at more than 50 Santa Cruz Mountain area wineries. What!??! That's right - participating locations will host tastings, live music, food samples and more. Locations that are normally closed to the public are open and others are open to passport holders only offering a truly VIP experience. Passport Days are held four times per year and occur in January, April, July and November.
Passports are $65 and are good two years from the date of puchase. Each winery visited provides a unique passport stamp to commemorate your visit. Each passport is good for one visit to each participating winery. For a full list of the wineries participating in Passport Days please see this link.
Didn't grab your passport yet? No worries, you can buy one this Saturday at a participating winery location. Cheers!
