Working with the Santa Cruz Mountains Winegrowers, Everyvine will produce a map of the Santa Cruz Mountains AVA.
Get your Vineyard & Winery on the map
If you represent a vineyard or winery in the Santa Cruz Mountains area you can enter your information to be included on the upcoming map. The process is painless and totally free.
When can I get it?
Everyvine will be collecting data for the map for the next few months. The Santa Cruz Mountains Winegrowers has decided to wait to see how many vineyards in the area participate before announcing the official date of publication. So, if your excited to see the map, let everyone in Santa Cruz Mountains know so we can get the map out as soon as possible.
While we are collecting data, vineyards and wineries in the Santa Cruz Mountains AVA should log on to Everyvine and add their information to be included on the map. Once the data collection ends the map will be drafted and will be published after about a month.
About the Region
The Santa Cruz Mountains are called “America’s Premier Mountain Appellation” because it was the first winegrowing region in the nation to be defined by a mountain range. The peak of Mount Madonna forms the southern boundary, and the sparkling waters of Half Moon Bay define the northern boundary. The minimum vineyard elevation is 400 feet on the ocean side and rises from 400 feet on the eastern San Francisco Bay side to 800 feet at the southeast boundary. Vineyards are planted as high as 3,200 feet. The appellation exceeds 400,000 acres although vineyard plantings are around 1,500 acres.
