We went to David Bruce winery and had a delightful tasting. They serve 5 wines complementary (2 white, 3 reds this time). We very much enjoyed their zinfandel and thus purchased a bottle. Staff was very pleasant and also knowledgeable. We also liked finding out that one of the winery's Chardonnays was featured in the 1976 wine tasting competition that... More

We loved the Pino at David Bruce! So much so we shipped a case home. The wines are good and are available on the Internet at discount prices. The winery is beautiful, the staff are knowledgeable and very friendly. It was a real treat to taste here, one of our favorite tasting rooms.

Our visit to David Bruce was so enjoyable! We had not intended on spending long in the area that day, but we pulled into David Bruce on our way home. We ended up with a 6 pack of Pinot Noir as well as a 6 pack of Chardonnay, both of which we thought were excellent and not overly expensive. David... More

I would agree wtih travelinggal2012. I wish they had tasting areas outside and/or the tasting room was a bit more fun. David Bruce is tucked in the Santa Cruz Mountains, and has great Pinot Noirs. The staff is friendly and oftentimes you'll see David Bruce himself in the tasting room.

Went to David Bruce Winery after visiting Byington and thought the building and landscaping were great. The tasting room is boring and cold, wish it had outside views and/or some rugs to give it a warmer feeling. Making up for the surroundings were the pouring staff. They were engaging and knowledgable and gave us pours from bottles not on our... More

First visit to David Bruce - friendly staff and the Chard. & Pinot Noirs were excellent. They were having great deals on cases of wine.

David Bruce Winery is located at the top of the Santa Cruz Mountains, where you can enjoy spectacular views even if you're not a wine drinker. The property and facilities are quite special and I'm sure they host plenty of beautiful weddings there. You can taste wine, too, of course.
