Are you looking for a Valentine’s Weekend outing with your sweetheart? Perhaps you want some adult time without traveling too far from home? If so, head to the Santa Cruz Mountains on February 15 or 16 for an afternoon of breathtaking views, sparkling conversation, and delicious locally-crafted wines.
The Summit Wineries, a wine trail of five wineries along Summit Road in the Santa Cruz Mountains, will hold special tastings on this weekend. The five wineries, located about 15 minutes south of downtown Los Gatos, are located within a few miles of each other and can easily be visited in one afternoon.
Coming from Highway 17, the participating wineries are: Villa del Monte, Regale, Burrell School, MJA, and Silver Mountain. Each winery offers a different tasting experience and scenic views across the Santa Cruz Mountains.
Each winery’s tasting fee/policy applies. Visit The Summit Wineries website for directions and more information about each winery. Also, be sure to print this article and bring it with you as the accompanying photo includes a two-for-one tasting coupon.
