Exploring the Santa Cruz Mountains: Sommelier Journal Terroir Experience, Day 1

Sommelier Journal hosts an annual Terroir Experience tour of a wine region. Currently a few of us are deep in the Santa Cruz Mountains on their 2013 trip. Following are photos of Day 1, touring the Santa Cruz Mountain AVA. The appellation is defined by its presence above the fog line (all above 800 ft), and its mountain topography.

We toured Monday in full fog, it lifting a couple times for partial view.
