Stunning Coastal Vistas, Soaring Redwoods, and the Best Wine & Beer in California
We find that most of our groups are either Wine fanatics or Beer fanatics but we are happy to do a combination tour too! Here are a couple combination brewery and winery tours our guides choose from:
We begin with a tasting flight at the local and delicious Shanty Shack. Next, we start driving up the coast to visit the historic Beauregard winery in the little known Bonny Doon Region. Finally, we visit the Swift St. Wineries and Santa Cruz Mountain Brewing. These are located in the Swift St. Courtyard along with Kelly’s Bakery and Cafe in case the group has worked up an appetite. This is a great tour for groups that want an equal amount of beer and wine tasting, as well as, a scenic drive up the Santa Cruz coast.
This tour includes Discretion Brewery, Soquel Vineyards, Beer Thirty, Hunter Hill Winery, and Bargetto Winery although not necessarily in that order. All of these locations are within 20 minutes of each other. You get the benefit of incredible views from Soquel Vineyards and a plethora of beers to try at Discretion and the immaculate Beer Thirty. This is a great tour for locals looking for a relaxed day of tasting some excellent Santa Cruz libations.
Santa Cruz Mountains Tour
We begin the Santa Cruz Mountains Tour with a beer tasting at Steel Bonnet Brewing before we venture into the hills. From here we will wind our way up to San Lorenzo Valley and visit Hallcrest Winery, famous for their organic wines and Pinot Noir. Finally, we will reach the Summit where we will taste both red and white wines at Byington or David Bruce. This tour is perfect for groups that want to see the redwoods and mountains while tasting at some “off the beaten path” locations.
