January 16, 2016: SCMWA Passport Day

Four times a year the winegrowing community of the Santa Cruz Mountains comes together to celebrate the generations of farmers, vintners and families that are the roots of the Santa Cruz Mountains wine region. Over the last 20 years the event has become a beloved tradition among wine lovers who enjoy wines produced by our legendary, artisan winemakers all within the idyllic Santa Cruz Mountains. The third Saturday of January, April, July and November, passport guests are welcomed into 50+ wineries throughout the Santa Cruz Mountains, each offering a unique pairing of artisan handcrafted wines, gourmet food and entertainment. Meet the winemakers, grapegrowers and sample exclusive vintages from wineries generally not open to the public. Delight in discovering each winery’s unique Passport “theme,” a tradition of the event. The possibilities are as varied as the wineries themselves and promise a fun, unforgettable weekend.

Left Bend Winery will be pouring it’s wines at our new tasting room in Los Gatos. Passports will be available for purchase from the winery or from SCMWA. Passports are $55. Tastings without a Passport are $10. Tasting fee waived with any purchase of Left Bend wine.

Address: 346 N. Santa Cruz Ave., Los Gatos, CA 95030

Hours: noon to 5pm

Cheers.
