MJA is one of several wineries with tasting rooms at the Swift Street Courtyard. It's not a large room. Though, there is a small outdoor deck that features an acoustic guitarist. The wines are okay. Many of the grapes are sourced from Napa so that's...More

A great place to do wine tasting while in Santa Cruz, CA. They have great red wines (yes they are pricey) and white wines too. Nice area to taste inside and can accommodate large parties. Knowledgeable/friendly wine hosts. Worth a stop while in Santa Cruz...More

This place reminded me of a car rental office that decided to throw in wine tasting. Gaudy decorations. Inconvenient areas to wine taste. Ambivalent staff. Ok wine. Would not go back.

Just a nice place to sip some excellent wines. The staff is super friendly, wine is delicious, atmosphere elevated, chocolates and coffee divine, what more could you ask for. Oh yes, plenty of eateries close by. Go and you'll be glad you did.
