As a Passport holder, you have the opportunity to meet the talented winemakers and staff of the Santa Clara Valley’s family owned wineries, and learn how they produce some of the world’s finest wines. You can expect up to 4, one ounce pours at each winery you visit during the weekend. Participating wineries may have food and entertainment, pour special select or library wines, offer barrel samples and many will offer attractive discounts on Passport Weekend. Local businesses also offer special discounts to Passport holders. See back pages for some of these specials.
During your journey, you will take your souvenir glass to each winery to receive your wine tasting. The winery will use a unique stamp on their designated page in your Passport to commemorate your valued participation, much like an entry visa. Make notes on the wines and wineries you most enjoyed, and return in the future when you may have more time to enjoy yourself and learn.
