Overview

Soquel Vineyards was established in 1987 when twin brothers Peter and Paul Bargetto, and their childhood friend Jon Morgan decided to develop their own label and ended up producing some of the best wines in the Santa Cruz Mountains Appellation. The partners have been producing award winning wines since the very beginning, most recently scoring a Best of Class, Double Gold, and three additional Gold medals at the 2016 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition. Fruit is sourced from the appellation, as well as Napa Valley, Lodi, Paso Robles, etc. Varietals include Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Nebbiolo, Zinfandel, Chardonnay -- and signature blends including Trinity Rosso, Intreccio and beginning in 2016, Consonante! The Santa Cruz Mountains Appellation is one of the up-and-coming areas in California. Plan a visit soon!
