Monte Bello

Santa Cruz Mountains
Santa Clara County

Nestled high up in the northern reaches of the Santa Cruz Mountains, and surrounded by historic vineyards, our Monte Bello Estate offers guests an unparalleled opportunity to experience our exceptional single-vineyard wines.

Tasting & Sales

Santa Clara County, where our Monte Bello winery is located, is moving forward with the California Department of Public Health’s Regional Stay at Home Order issued on December 3rd 2020, which means that the Monte Bello tasting room will not be able to host wine tastings on property as of Monday, December 7th. This new shutdown will last until further notice from the county. The Monte Bello tasting room will continue to accept reservations for curbside pickups, 7 days a week.

Virtual Wine Tastings

Enjoy the wine country tasting experience from home while being guided by a knowledgeable host from the Ridge team. Our virtual wine tastings are a great way to connect with friends, family, or clients from afar. We offer a selection of pre-built Virtual Tasting Kits, each containing four of our single-vineyard wines, or the option to purchase a custom selection of wines for your virtual tasting experience.

High Atop a Mountain
We are located at 2,300 feet in the northern reaches of the Santa Cruz Mountains. The drive up Montebello Road is a very winding route that occasionally becomes a single lane. Additionally, Montebello road is a popular bicycle route. Please allow sufficient time to ensure you are able to make your drive carefully up the mountain. Carpooling is encouraged and large trucks and buses should contact us prior to your trip to confirm access is available.
