September is California Wine Month and Santa Cruz County is the perfect destination to raise a glass! The Santa Cruz Mountains are known for their exceptional wines. The small production vineyards, the passionate, and often present, vintners, and the area's varying climate give the region a truly unique tasting experience. But with over 70 wineries and tasting rooms, it may be hard to know where to begin.

It's quite a magical place and anyone who's been there knows just what I'm talking about.
