The Spanish Portal at Mountain Winery

Drive up a narrow, winding road in the foothills of the Santa Cruz Mountains to enjoy wine tasting, expansive views of Silicon Valley, or the famous Concert Summer Series at the Mountain Winery. The Concert Summer Series is held in a modest-sized concert bowl. The concert seating area overlooks the Paul Masson wine cellar rebuilt in 1907 after the San Francisco earthquake left the original structure in ruins. The wine cellar features a 12th Century Spanish portal “acquired” from the rubble of the old St. Patrick’s Cathedral in San Jose. The grand portal provides a dramatic backdrop to the stage where well-known musicians perform.
