Join vintners of the Santa Cruz Mountains for the Wines of the Santa Cruz Mountains Grand Wine Tasting at The Mountain Winery in Saratoga on Sunday, March 24.

Dive deep into the Wines of the Santa Cruz Mountains and discover more than 40 wineries – all in one location – at the 2024 Grand Wine Tasting! Explore the stunning grounds and breathtaking views of The Mountain Winery while you sip award-winning wines, show off your skills in a lively lawn game and bid on more than 50 exciting silent auction items – including rare wine releases, magnums and VIP vineyard tours. As you taste your way through the Santa Cruz Mountains, grab a bite to eat at The Mountain Winery concessions bar or bring your own picnic to linger through the day. Meet the winemakers, compare sub-regional characteristics and find new favorites.

VIP ticket holders enjoy early entry, a sparkling wine and rosé bar, and wine country bites to nibble on. This exclusive entrance allows ticket holders primary access to their favorite brands.
