Home to many world- class wineries, the diversity of microclimates is ideal for many classic grape varieties, including chardonnay, cabernet sauvignon, zinfandel and pinot noir. One of the region’s most celebrated winemakers, Paul Mason, who recalled the fine wine regions of his native France, named this region the Chaine d’Or, the Chain of Gold. It is for good reason that winemakers, writers and connoisseurs continue to describe the wines of the Santa Cruz Mountains’ wineries as some of the finest in the world.
