From Petite Sirahs to Sauvignon Blancs, Monterey's wine country boasts bold and delicate flavors
Ideally located just south of the San Francisco Bay Area, Monterey
is home to one of California’s premier wine country
areas. With plenty of warm sunshine, crisp ocean breezes and rich soil, Monterey consistently produces some of the best wine grapes in the United States and features more than 80 wineries, distilleries and vineyards.
Whether you want to experience a leisurely wine tasting excursion or participate in an aficionado course that highlights the latest barrel-making techniques, Monterey’s wine country
includes both massive grape plantations and smaller family-run wineries that produce specialty vinos where you can enjoy samplings at in-house tasting bars.
Many of Monterey’s wineries offer guided tours that walk you through the process of winemaking and cover a wide range of topics from soil conditions to cultivating, barreling, distilling, tasting classes and many annual events, including wine festivals and competitions are held throughout the year.
