Few things can match tasting wine at the Bargetto Tasting Room whilst enjoying splendid views of the Pacific Ocean. Established in 1933, the Bargetto is famed for its dessert wines under the Chaucer's brand name. The winery also stacks the famous red and white wines along with the sparsely available sparkling ones. With the vineyards situated just a stone's throw away in the Santa Cruz mountains, the wines produced are completely unadulterated. Wine apparel and gift baskets are available at this outlet as well.
Here is an intelligent solution to the dilemma of how to wine-taste while navigating curvy mountain road: just make one stop. Make it in downtown Monterey, where there is nary a deer in sight. Spend the whole day here where you can sample from dozens of vintages collected from nearly 40 local wineries. Taste the riches of Carmel Valley, Monterey and Arroyo Seco. Buy a few bottles or a few cases, as you like. When it is time to get some solid food in your overtaxed stomach, simply walk on over to one of the many restaurants on Cannery Row. See website for online shopping, wine club details, event calendar and more.
