Central Coast Wine Country
Five miles inland from the Monterey Bay, Corralitos real estate in the sunny foothills of the Santa Cruz Mountains create an ideal locale for numerous farms and orchards including Live Earth Farm and Gizdich Ranch. The long consistent growing season makes Corralitos one of the best places to grow wine grapes on the Central Coast. Several vineyards flourish in the Corralitos area, including the Alfaro Family Vineyard-Winery and Nicholson Vineyards.
Just 15 short miles south of Santa Cruz, the community of Corralitos is popular for its wide open spaces, temperate climate and rustic feel. Many of the current homes are parcels of past orchards and offer generous lots filled with volunteer fruit trees, space for gardening and artist studios.
