I have bought 5-10 wine testing tickets so far but this is the best one. They gave you quality food and quality wines (and beers). Unlike others, they just dumbed to your glass cheap wine that you don't want to drink more after the 3rd booth even they're free.

Super fun time at Monterey Wine Festival. Good variety of wines and wine merchants, and there were other beer and spirits available. Enjoyed the food but wished there were a few more restaurants offering food choices.

Enjoyed the wine festival. Lots of different wine options, although I wish there was a broader-variety of foods rather than just clam chowder.

Sunday was lively, but there were only 3 food booths. I wss the designated driver, so I was a little disappointed.

The food on sunday is really not my favorite. And the wine is not really from monterey county. More lodi, sonoma, and other areas. Great wine dont get me wrong but its not monterey county wine. I really really liked the bar tender lessons and how you get to try fun drinks and learn how to make them. Also you can taste spirits and other liquors! Super fun but could use some upgrades!

Location, location, location perfect, wines delicious (Lodi, CA was a stand out), beer yummy and the moonshines intoxicating. Danced a little, laughed a lot and will be coming back next year.

From Our Editors

The cinematic views of the Bay meet the region's finest foods and spirits once again as The Monterey Wine Festival enters its 42nd year. Each day of the festival treats the senses to a distinct variety of savory pairings and entertainment. Here's a handy guide for getting the most out of the weekend.

  • Saturday, June 9: It's chowder day at the festival, with West Coast chefs stirring up perfectly simmered bowls of creative clam and seafood stews. These chowders, many of them award-winning, come specially paired with whites and reds. And if chowder's not your thing, there's plenty of other food options as well. On the spirits side, a cocktail camp—offered both Saturday and Sunday—teaches aspiring mixologists to prepare cocktails like a pro.
  • Sunday, June 10: Local chefs and traveling restauranteurs have been crowned the Kings of Calamari and Masters of Mussels, and fest-goers can pair the signature dishes with complementary wines. In addition to the succulent seafood, Sunday treats palates to tastes of international cheeses, charcuterie, and more. And Sunday also features live music to soundtrack every sip.
