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 5pm (Summer hours), and during the week by appointment only. Please keep in mind that our last tasting of the afternoon will begin at 4:30pm to give you ample time to taste through your flight.

IMPORTANT: If you plan on visiting with family, children, or a group of 8 or more, we kindly ask that you call to check availability. Please note; we have limited accommodations for children and dogs.
