There’s more whales in the Monterey Bay this season than we can remember! Come out to Sand Rock Farm and take an ocean adventure with Sanctuary Cruises.
This weekend, November 15th, you will want to get a very special Passport. The Passport from the Santa Cruz Mountain Wine Association will grant you access to over 30 wineries in the hills and mountains surrounding Aptos and Santa Cruz .
A not to miss event. Some of the wineries are only open for Passport. All the wineries would like to share their wines with visitors. Each winery offers something unique. In one you might be given a vineyard tour. Another might show you the winemaking process. You usually are able to meet the winemaker and hear from him the attributes of his particular wines. Some of the wineries offer food and live music.
If you miss out this weekend, you can use the Passport any one of four weekends a year, the third Saturday of January, April, July and November. Wineries are usually open between 10 AM and 5 PM.
On your visit, a page of your Passport will be given a unique commemorative stamp by the winery. There is a prize for those Passport holders who have stamps from all the wineries.
Wineries open on non-Passport days will accept Passports and stamp your Passport. Passports are good for one free tasting winery visit on Passport days or throughout the year and is good for two years.
The Passport cost is $45 and can be purchased online or at any participating winery.
