The Magic of Mount Eden Vineyards – Jeffrey Patterson, Ep. 56

Getting to Mount Eden Vineyards in California’s Santa Cruz Mountains is an adventure! The drive is up a twisty mountain road with lots of hairpin turns and steep drop offs. A good portion of the road – at the topmost part – is unpaved. But then you arrive at the peak, 2000 feet above Silicon Valley, and the breathtaking views, not to mention the wines, are totally worth the journey.

The Marys sit down with winemaker Jeffrey Patterson, one of the best known vintners in the Santa Cruz Mountains AVA, and all of California. He’s been crafting world class Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon from this historic vineyard for more than 40 years. Join us and discover the magic of Mount Eden.
