“Burrell School Winery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

There a thousands of wineries to visit in California and this is one of the best; definitely our favorite in the Santa Cruz Mountains. The wines are all solidly made, drink well with food and are an exceptional value. The wine club prices are a bargin. A visit to the tasting room is pure fun with a great staff. All of their wines have a school themed name like "Dean's List", "Detention", etc which is a little corny but part of the fun.

“+ outstanding white and red wines!!!, + nice staff, + charismatic vintner, + scenic outlook”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

This winery in the Santa Cruz Mountains is still a hidden gem and their wines barely make it out of the Bay Area since they are so popular in the vicinity.

After coming here for several wine tastings I had to sign-up for their wine club since all their wines are superb. Whether you like crisp or smooth whites or fruity or heavy reds Burrell has it all.

One of my personal favorites is the Old School wine that goes perfect with pasta dishes.

Besides the great wines the location is unique. Burrell is located within a historic school building on Summit Road (at HWY 17). From the patio you have a scenic view over the vineyard and Santa Cruz Mountains, a perfect location to enjoy a picnic.

The staff is fun to chat with and they really enjoy having you at the winery. Overall compared with other wineries in the area Burrell is one of the most joyful places to taste wines.

“We went on a week day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

The hostess was friendly. The wine was good enough to buy. Some of the wine was good enough to buy. I had a case sent to the house. It is ready to drink and Thanksgiving is just weeks away. The place is cute and there is a lovely view.

“Wines in the moutains”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2012

The wines are good, and it really is an old rural school house. Sit out on the deck, enjoy the view and sample some very nice wines.

“A nice small winery”

You meet the owners, try their wine and walk around - we found it on one of our Sunday drives.
