Owner description: Soquel Vineyards was established in 1987 when twin brothers Peter and Paul Bargetto, and their childhood friend Jon Morgan decided to develop their own label and ended up producing some of the best wines in the Santa Cruz Mountains Appellation. The partners have been producing award winning wines since the very beginning, most recently scoring a Best of Class, Double Gold, and three additional Gold medals at the 2016 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition. Fruit is sourced from the appellation, as well as Napa Valley, Lodi, Paso Robles, etc. Varietals include Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Nebbiolo, Zinfandel, Chardonnay -- and signature blends including Trinity Rosso, Intreccio and beginning in 2016, Consonante! The Santa Cruz Mountains Appellation is one of the up-and-coming areas in California. Plan a visit soon!

Soquel Vineyards is on a beautiful location with a view of mountains and ocean. The owners are always warm and welcoming. They have a fun tasting on their patio many week-ends. They also fire up their outdoor pizza oven on many weekends and the pizzas are amazing! Last time I visited they made a Cesar Salad pizza! Who would have thought! Was delish! Love their wines also! We have been members of their wine club for many years and suggest you join too!

Soquel Vineyards sits in the Santa Cruz Mts off Highway 17. First off, the wines are excellent. We tasted the 2010 Meyley Chardonney. Dry at first with a gentle smooth touch of fruit. Not buttery at all. We bought a bottle to take home. Next was a special very dry Chardonnay close to a fine French Chablis called Olivia's after the young wine graduate who worked that day in the tasting room. She crafted the wine and is receiving very positive reviews for her work. It would go very well with mussels. We took home two bottles. The 2010 Pinot was very good and another bottle home. By then I was ready to take Sangiovese without even tasting it.
Olivia knows what she is doing! We had some good discussions about various European comparisons to Soquel wines.
Peter, One of the two owners and vintners helped her and us with the wine sales and took,us up to home garden area next to the shop. Beautifully landscaped with a great view, it was getting ready to receive a large group. Still they took time to show us the grounds and discuss the wines
This is an excellent winery that I can recommend without any reservation.
