An improvisational coastline... from Big Sur’s rugged shore and Carmel’s bleached sands, to Pebble Beach’s gentle tide pools, Monterey, California is world-famous for unparalleled scenic beauty, and our world-class wines rely on those very same picture-perfect elements.
Warm sun, cool fog, ancient soils... all essential components to the art of winemaking. From the steep slopes of Carmel Valley to the rolling hills of Salinas, Monterey stands alone in crafting wines of exceptional flavor, character and balance.
Average summer temperatures can reach into the 100’s with cool evenings dropping into the low 30’s and 40’s. This dramatic swing in temperature extends the ripening time and growing season, allowing the grapes a slow maturation process for eventual complexity in the fruit and the wine.
Our local winemakers’ hospitality is as famous as the vintages. The historical roots of Monterey Wine Country run deep!
