Rancho Don Bosco is an exclusive estate just minutes from downtown Santa Cruz and Scotts Valley. Upon entering the 95-acre property, you are welcomed by a pond and expansive views of the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir vineyard. Meander up the driveway and into the manicured gardens which are hosts to a variety of ornamental trees and ornate landscape. Custom stone and brick work are throughout the grounds. Stroll around the gardens, walk past the bocce ball and horseshoe courts and you arrive at the center piece of the property, a 4,000 square foot event center, affectionately named The Barn – perfect for your reception.
The Barn is complete with an expansive banquet room, dance floor, commercial kitchen, professional bar and large stone fireplace. Audio and video equipment are also available. Three oversized rustic doors open to the gardens, waterfall, pond and numerous sitting areas. A canary aviary, windmill, wine cellar and fire pit are other elements surrounding The Barn at Rancho Don Bosco.
