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.
Monte Bello Closed Weekdays Throughout August
Heavy rains this past winter washed out a section of Montebello Road, which is the only public route to access our winery. Santa Clara County has announced the work to fix this section of the road will occur throughout August. Beginning the week of August 1st, the road will be closed entirely from 8:30am to 6pm, Monday through Friday, with possible Saturday work to be determined. As a result Monte Bello will be completely closed to visitation, Monday through Friday, during this time. We will announce any weekend closure of the business as soon as we receive confirmation from the county. Further information can be found by visiting the county website.
Weekdays: By Reservation Only
(please note closure information above)
Due to construction on Montebello Road, our Monte Bello tasting room will be closed on Saturday, August 12th and Saturday, August 19th.
Saturdays and Sundays: 11:00 am – 5:00 pm
Visiting Monte Bello on a weekend does not require a reservation for small groups of 8 or less. Our appointment-based Estate tastings are available seven days a week and do require a reservation.
