Owners Jim and Judy Schultze launched this winery in 1996 and have been producers of consistently outstanding Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The wines have brought them many accolades from the wine press. I am a wine writer and have visited many times to walk the vineyard with Jim and taste his special wines. I consider Jim, the winemaker, to be one of the most accomplished vintners in the Santa Cruz Mountains.

More recently, Jim's son, Spencer, has become the assistant winemaker. The Schultze's other son, James, works in the winery tasting room and manages the winery's two other tasting rooms in Carmel Valley and Carmel.

Like many Santa Cruz Mountain wineries, Windy Oaks Estate is hidden among towering forests and one must traverse a narrow two lane road to reach the winery. However, the winery and vineyard are open only on weekends so traffic is not a concern. The winery is a 30 minute drive south of Santa Cruz.

When you arrive, you will find an unpretentious winery and comfortable tasting room. Walk the 30-acre vineyard to the top of the hill and take in a panoramic view of Monterey Bay in the distance. The presence of this large body of water creates the perfect microclimate at Windy Oaks for farming Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

Start with the dry Provence-style Rose made with Grenache, move to one of the three Chardonnays, and finish up with a tasting of the many Pinot Noir offerings. The Pinot Noir style is refined, elegant and engaging. Sampler Tasting is $15 and Pinot Noir Tasting is $20. A small price to pay for wine of this high quality. Consider buying a bottle or two and have a picnic at the top of the vineyard.

Windy Oaks Wine Group members enjoy many benefits including discounts on wines (see website).

We live in Aptos so it was a lovely 30-minute drive out to the winery. Their Sampler Tasting was $15pp and the Pinot tasting was $20 pp so we decided to just buy a bottle of their Chardonnay ($28) to enjoy with our picnic lunch. It was very good. They have a number of tables on their patio with a friendly server.

This place took a while to find but it sure was worth the trip, I only tasted the Pinot Noir tasting menu and that's what I needed! The wine it's young but tasty, I got me couple of bottles for later consumption, but over all the wine is great! Next time I will go in with more time. If you are in town you should visit this winery! Plus the owner was there and made it better!

If you would like to see a down to earth winery with great pinot - this is it. Not commercialized like many others in Ca. A real family operation. Jim & Judy make everyone feel welcome. If your local also visit the Corralitas meat and grocery store. Great sausage and marinated strip steaks.

On a friend's recommendation, I went to Windy Oaks January 2013, as part of SCMWA's Passport Day. I took the way in from San Jose via Gilroy & Watsonville. Getting there via Santa Cruz would have been easier.When I arrived, I was told they left the Passport program, but they would honor my passort anyway.

Family operation at the top fo the mountain. The rutted dirt driveway to the tasting room from the county road might be difficult in wet weather without 4WD. Open Saturdays only, noon to 5:00.

The trip was well worth it. Tasting room abuts the estate vineyard, and there's a short trail to the top from where you can have a picnic and see the Monterey Bay on a good afternoon. Family and one family friend working the teasting room. Not a bad wine was poured--all excellent examples of the best of Santa Cruz Mountain pinot noir. I left with a varied selection.

May be a challenge to your GPS, but well worth the trip.

The Windy Oaks winery is located several miles up a winding country road. Make the effort to call and visit. They feature Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Behind the tasting room there is a walk through the vineyard to the top of a hill with a wonderful view of the Salinas valley and Monterrey Bay Area. The wines are very good. The winery is open to the public on Wine Passport Days and Corralitos Wine Trail Days.
