Santa Clara Valley wineries have a rich and interesting history, dating back to the 18th century. Native Americans named this region, “the Valley of the Heart’s Delight,” for the fertile lands found here. The Mediterranean-type climate and rich soils make it ideal for growing grapes, early settlers were quick to seize upon the opportunity of ideal grape cultivation. If you didn’t make it to one of the magnificent Santa Clara Valley Wine Trail wineries over the summer, the end of the season does not mean the end of trips for wine tastings around Morgan Hill! In fact, make an entire weekend out of it and enjoy the Fall Passport Tour October 13th, 14th and 15th.
The Wineries of Santa Clara Valley are hosting this 21 and older spectacular wine tasting tour. Purchase a Fall Passport ticket, and you will receive a booklet, and get a stamp to remember each winery you visit. You will also receive a souvenir glass to take to each winery participating during the Fall Passport weekend tour. Your glass will get you up to four, 1-ounce tastings at each location.
