Passport Celebration Days to the Santa Cruz Mountains was introduced in 1993, by the Winegrowers of the Santa Cruz Mountains. 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. With the purchase of a Wineries of the Santa Cruz Mountains Passport wine enthusiasts can visit the participating wineries all year round.
In addition, 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 on Passport Celebration Days. On the third Saturday of January, April, July and November, our participating wineries welcome passport aficionados into their 50+ tasting rooms throughout the Santa Cruz Mountains, each offering a unique Passport Celebration Day winery experience. The possibilities are as varied as the wineries themselves and promise a fun, unforgettable day no matter if you go wine tasting on Passport Days or any other day or weekend throughout the year.
