Equinox & Bartolo Winery
In 1989, Equinox sparkling wine was born with their first harvest made at Storrs winery in Santa Cruz only to lose half to the violent jolts of the Loma Prieta Earthquake. In 2005, the perfect winery location was found on the west side of Santa Cruz and with this came the ability to produce custom sparkling wine for other wineries who could not make their own and also expand into the production of still wines under the new Bartolo label. In 2006, Equinox opened their own on-site Santa Cruz facility to expand their own wine production with hands-on services to consult for and assist other wineries who wanted to produce sparkling wines under their own label. Located just outside of downtown Santa Cruz, 70 miles south of San Francisco, a block from Natural Bridges State Park, and ten minutes from the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, Equinox sparkles as one of Santa Cruz's premier wineries.
