  • Pierce Ranch Vineyards
    Pierce Ranch Vineyards is a boutique winery located in a highland valley at the southern border of Monterey County, but its wines have the robust characteristics of those from the Iberian Peninsula. That's because the family that operates the vineyard specializes in Spanish and Portuguese varietals. They use careful growing methods and fermentation techniques to craft a wide range of limited-run wines. Each and every one of their yearly production of 2,000 cases is grown on the estate. While lesser-known varieties such as touriga, tempranillo, and albariño are emphasized, more familiar grapes such as cabernet sauvignon and zinfandel are represented as well. Previous vintages have included their 2010 albariño that was awarded Best in Show at the Central Coast Wine Competition and a 2007 petite sirah that was declared Best in California at the California State Fair Wine Competition. Flowers and ornamental vines surround the winery's tasting room, which occupies a cozy bungalow near the coast of Monterey Bay. Servers jot the day's wine offerings on a chalkboard and fill glasses behind a wooden bar. In addition to wine tastings, visitors can stop by for live music or open-house events.

  • Bargetto Winery
    1933 was a banner year for Phillip and John Bargetto. Prohibition finally ended, and the brothers were able to reopen their winery in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Originally from Piedmont, Italy, Phillip and John embraced their passion for growing northern-Italian varietals, twining their hillsides with vines of dolcetto, nebbiolo, and refosco grapes. Now run by the Bargetto family's third generation, the winery continues to cultivate these same grapes as well as two of Santa Cruz's more well-known varietals, chardonnay and pinot noir. Its most heralded wines hail from the 40 acres of trellised vines at Regan Estate Vineyards, which produces balanced yet concentrated fruit thanks to its sunny hilltop location, loamy soil, and cool breezes from thousands of naturally occurring ceiling fans. Controlled aging in new-French- or American-oak barrels imbues some of the winery's reds with lingering finishes and toasty sweetness, and stainless-steel barrels ensure that the whites retain their vibrant acidity. Although most of the wines display a more approachable style, the La Vita line embraces the family's Old-World routes, featuring complexly tannic and age-worthy blends of Phillip and John's favored dolcetto, nebbiolo, and refosco grapes.

  • A Taste of Monterey-Wine Market & Bistro
    You might notice some unexpected, though entirely welcome, dinner guests at A Taste of Monterey-Wine Market & Bistro. Whales, sea lions, otters, and other marine animals often pop up to say hello through the floor-to-ceiling windows that cover an entire wall of the dining room, which overlooks Monterey Bay. A grand sight, but what stands at the room's opposite end is perhaps even more impressive. Here, wine racks hold some of the best bottles from more than 95 local wineries. In short, the place is a far cry from its humble origins, as a sardine cannery built circa 1918, the year California legalized putting fish in small containers. Pick a favorite wine, opt for a flight to sample several varietals, or go a completely different route with house made prickly pear lemonade. Whatever your choice, the bistro's chefs are ready with promising food pairings, including more than 20 artisan cheeses from California. Other shareable plates arrive in the tasting room loaded with Monterey crab dip and flatbread pizzas in inventive flavors such as the Cubano: braised pork, shaved ham, Swiss cheese, zucchini pickles, and honey mustard.

  • De Tierra Vineyards
    The family behind De Tierra Vineyards wants to provide its visitors with a true taste of Monterey County. So grapes for their red, white, rosé, and dessert wines are sourced from four local vineyards, all certified to be environmentally sustainable. Each of those vineyards offers a distinct climate and soil that leads to distinct flavors. For example, the afternoon winds at the Sargenti Estate vineyard cause chardonnay grape plants to create thicker protective skins, which create stronger, more complex flavors. Likewise, the Arroyo Seco Canyon climate at the Mesa del Sol vineyard makes it ideal for growing sangiovese, syrah, and zinfandel grapes. For a taste of all these handcrafted wines and more, guests can visit De Tierra Vineyards' tasting room, an open, rustic space located in scenic Carmel-by-the-Sea.
