About Quinta Cruz
Quinta Cruz is a sister brand to Santa Cruz Mountain Vineyard created to showcase only grape varieties originally from the Iberian Peninsula. It was the first brand in the United States dedicated solely to grape varieties that are originally from Portugal and Spain, but now grown in California.
Our wine making approach for over 40 years is to produce European-style, food-oriented wines known for their character, personality and ability to age gracefully for decades. Our philosophy is to make wines with moderate alcohol and oak so that the true characteristics of the grape varieties are expressed in the wine. The first duty of wine is to dance with food, so no over-ripe raisin bombs here!
