WINERIES OF SANTA CLARA VALLEY SPRING PASSPORT MONTH The Wineries of Santa Clara Valley are changing things up. What used to be a Passport Weekend is now a Passport… for the whole month of March. Celebrations began with a kick-off event at Coyote Creek Golf Course on March 2nd. Twenty-four wineries and fourteen restaurants participated. The Passport entitled the bearer to four pours each at over thirty wineries during the month of March. The pass- ports were valid anytime the winery is open. The Passport offered a month-long opportunity to visit some old and new wineries, and sample some great local wines. Some wineries had additional festivities during the Passport — many wineries had some appetizers to go with the tasting and some had music. In addition, many local restaurants and businesses are offered Passport - related discounts. For information about the Fall Passport, visit santaclarawines.com.
