About Us

What started out as a mission for the best selection of Santa Cruz Mountains wine has grown into much more!

Fresh · Local · Delicious

If you are looking for a taste of local, you've found it.

Wine Bar meets Restaurant

Our passion for wine pairs well with our award-winning cuisine.

The initial concept for Vinocruz was to source the BEST wine from the Santa Cruz Mountains AVA.

Before you could find a regional wine at your local grocery store, you needed to go to the winery to taste and select local wine.  This was the idea that launched Vinocruz: a taste of the Santa Cruz Mountains in one location.

Fast forward several years and Vinocruz has morphed into a fantastic restaurant, expanded our wine profile to include 50+ wines by the glass, and incorporated local beer and cider on tap.

We look forward to providing you an excellent experience.

Free WiFi for everyone

Enjoy a glass of your favorite and still be productive!
