The Annual Silicon Valley Wine Auction offered a collage of wines from the region.
Winemakers from Corralitos to the Peninsula gathered to pour their wines.
All the wines were made with grapes sourced from the Santa Cruz Mountain AVA.
Enjoy the tour!
Thank you, Santa Cruz Mountains Wine Growers Assoc., for the invitation to cover the 2019 SVWA!
I volunteered for the Santa Cruz Mountain Winegrowers Association (Link) for almost four years.
During that time, I cut my teeth on SCM varietals.
These local wines became the foundation for my wine palate.
Without meaning to, I often compare and contrast the wines from other regions to my local wines.
Some SCM wines are smooth, some silky, others light, others hearty.
Producing wines that are tannic, to raw, to elegant in palate, the region is a wine playground
within reach of the beach and the nation's tech capital.
A toast to your collage of wines!
