Bargetto Winery is as much a part of Soquel as the natural landscapes. For 3 generations now, this winery has…More been family owned and operated. But there is more to enjoy from this winery than what the retailers sell in their stores. The winery itself is home to a very active tasting room. Just past an eclectic gift shop, Bargetto's wine bar plays host to a large following of local residents who have fallen head-over-heels for this award-winning local treasure.
When the indie film Sideways became a hit, so did the pinot noir varietal. And while Sonoma and Paso Robles dominate the marketplace with extraordinary history, people still tend to overlook the Goldilock's climate that makes Santa Cruz stand out: not too hot, not too cold, just right. When it's all said and done, only one wine wears the crown for California's best pinot noir, judged by the 2010 California State Fair Wine Competition: Bargetto's 2007 Reserve Pinot Noir.
And for those most cherished occasions, Bargetto's creekside courtyard and historic cellars are ideal for private events. Just imagine retreating into a pastoral paradise: the babbling creek's symphonic run over the rock-bed, sunlight piercing the seams between the branches, and the spacious patio to accommodate everyone.
