Luckily, there’s plenty of notable wineries in the Brookdale area, all with their own unique offerings. Take a look below at four wineries definitely worth visiting while in the area.
For a magical atmosphere, visit Partage Winery.
A quick glance at the Partage Winery website is all you should need to understand why we call this place magical. This quaint, family owned and operated winery is shaped like a castle, tucked away in the towering Santa Cruz mountains. Book a signature tasting ($20), estate tour and tasting ($50) or private library tour and tasting ($100) to get a complete view of the property and taste of the wine. Partage Winery’s selections are rooted in both French and American origins.
For organic wine, visit Hallcrest Vineyards.
You’ll find Hallcrest Vineyards & Tasting Room also nestled in the Santa Cruz Mountains. What started as one of only three wineries in Santa Cruz in the 1880s, is now a popular retreat for winery enthusiasts and novices alike. The winery specializes in organically grown grapes and organically processed wine– a pioneer in the ecological movement. Bring your own picnic items, purchase some organic wine and breathe in the fresh mountain air surrounding Hallcrest.
For nice outdoor seating, visit Big Basin Vineyards
Situated next to Big Basin Redwoods State Park, Big Basin Vineyards is a historic vineyard site that uses modern, organic viticultural methods. Grab a glass of wine to enjoy inside the Saratoga Tasting Room, or take it outside to the patio overlooking the surrounding mountains. Guided and self-guided tours of the vineyards are also available.
For a creekside picnic date, visit Beauregard Vineyards.
At Beauregard Vineyards, expect to find expansive vineyards and a beautiful, historic wooden tasting room. The winery is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Enjoy wine in the tasting room or grab a seat at one of the property’s popular picnic tables located underneath the towering redwoods, next to a mountain creek.
