Beautiful winery grounds and awesome views, just a short drive from downtown Saratoga. We had corporate party at the property and were really happy. The food was delicious, wine is very tasty and the views are just unforgettable.

Evidently under new ownership. I have been there several times. Nice views of the valley. Can be crowded at times. I like the Syrah and Cabernet.

Paul Masson purchased this beautiful location in 1901 to grow his sparkling wine and found out it could do much more like grow Bordeaux style wines. This is not the original building that collapsed in the great 1906 earthquake. It is rebuilt from sandstone blocks from a former winery in downtown Saratoga. It has been a major player in concert...

The view is mesmerizing. We enjoyed the wine tasting on the heated patio. Prices we're good and we bought bottles of Chardonnay. We'll definitely be back! There's a performance venue here and we'd like to attend an event sometime.

We were fortunate enough to get tickets to a summer concert here which was a great experience. Easy parking, a small venue so easy to get in and out of, amazing views over the valley. Food and drink prices are what you would expect for a concert venue but better quality. Would definitely like to go back for other concerts.

The Mountain Winery is set in the Santa Cruz Mountains. The scenery is gorgeous. We enjoy the wines, and membership benefits. During the late spring to early fall, they have a great concert series. I can't say enough about this place. They have good food and events as well.

Concerts at the Mountain Winery are special. The venue is gorgeous and you get a fantastic view of the silicon valley from it. Add a starry night and warm weather and you know what I am talking about! Make sure you experience your own picnic there as well as a special night at the restaurant. They are equally memorable.

It just felt a bit tired and they need to do more with the wine. I'm sure the concerts up here must be great but I wouldn't come back.
