Plan Your Visit

We invite you to journey down Redwood Retreat Road, and explore our secluded 17 acres in the foothills. Nestled in the Santa Cruz Mountains, you’ll enjoy new discoveries with every visit to Martin Ranch Winery. Take in views of our estate vineyards, organic garden, barrel room, and member seating areas. Club members and their guests are encouraged to pack a picnic, savor our wine, and enjoy the bounty of our comfortable setting.

We're open for wine tasting the first and third Friday, Saturday, and Sunday of the month from 12pm to 4pm (new Winter hours), and during the week by appointment only. Please keep in mind that our last tasting of the afternoon will begin at 3pm to give you ample time to taste through your flight.

 

wine tasting

Our knowledgeable tasting associates will guide you through your tasting flight as you take in breathtaking panoramic views of our vineyards.

After completing your $15 tasting experience, take home a bottle of your favorite wine and receive $5 off. If you decide to join our Wine Club during the course of your visit, your tasting fee will be waived.

children

Wine Club members are welcome to bring their children as a benefit of their membership.

As a working winery, we must stress that your children are supervised at all times. To help keep mom, dad, and the kiddos all happy (& accounted for), we recently added a family seating area and tasting bar near our play area!

Please keep in mind that children will not be allowed in tasting areas. At this time, we do not have space to accommodate children on rainy days.

food

We've partnered with Chef Lou of Cellar Door Catering to provide you with a variety of small plates perfect for complementing your wine.

You're also welcome to pack a picnic, but please keep in mind that alcoholic beverages including previously purchased Martin Ranch Winery wines are prohibited.

Picnic areas are weather permitting.

If you have a party of 8 or more, please call ahead to give our office a heads up. We'll reserve you a table, which will help speed up the check in process. Give us a call at 408.842.9197

pets

We know your four legged friends are part of the family. Dogs of Wine Club members are welcome to tag along for the day, but will not be allowed in our tasting areas.

Please ensure that your pooch is dog-social and people-social, kept on leash at all times, and cleaned up after.

At this time, we do not have space to accommodate pets on rainy days. Pets are not permitted during events.

events

We're happy to offer a variety of private events for Wine Club Members and their guests including our annual Lobster Feed, Harvest Celebration, and Soulmate Dinner!

Wine Club members, if you are interested in hosting a private event at the winery, please contact Michele Swensen. As you know, our grounds are perfect for rehearsal dinners, birthday parties, anniversary celebrations, and bridal showers.
