Vino Tabi Description

Vino Tabi, which means “wine journey” in Japanese, is sure to provide you with many options for your own personal wine journey.  For those who are up for a relaxing day of wine tasting, the marble tasting bar with tall wood stools is welcoming and relaxing, and immediately puts you at ease. 


Wine maker and proprietor Katie Fox will tell you interesting stories about her travels to Japan and the evolution of her winery, while you enjoy the fruits of her labor.  If you would like your journey to include food, be sure to stop in on a Friday night when the winery is open late, a local musician performs acoustic delights, and a gourmet hot dog cart provides tasty bites to pair with the winery’s flagship Pinot Noir or any wine of your choice.


In addition to making their own wines, the winery also offers budding wine makers the opportunity to try their hand at making wine.  Vino Tabi has a Barrel Buddy program where you can own a barrel of wine, and create your own personal label, or share it in partnership with others.  Vino Tabi also offers educations events and seminars to help you on your way to becoming a wine aficionado.

Learn to make your own or just drink some great wine.

More than a tasting room for a winery. If you'd like to learn how to make wine and actually do it, this is a great place to start. Lots of great Santa Cruz varietals available here. They are well connected with the local growers and make lots of great wines and can find grapes for you to make your own.

Really enjoyed the Friday night I spent at Vino Tabi enjoying wine, a hot dog and live music! Definitely a fun choice for a Friday night.
