Great Pinots - very full without being overly fruity. Friendly and wine-knowledgeable staff. Reasonable tasting fee. At the east end of Carmel Village located approximately 12 miles / 15 minutes east of the intersection of Hwy 1 and Carmel Valley Road.

How can you not visit a winery with the name Boekenoogen! The white wine has a distinctive flavor, refreshing and unique. The staff is friendly. Try the Syrah, it is quite nice too. Very down-to-earth staff that treated us really nice. Mrs. Boekenoogen, thank you for a lovely experience.

We enjoyed tasting a variety of whites and reds at the tasting room of this family owned winery. The vineyards are in the Santa Lucia Highlands and the tasting room in the Carmel Valley. Very nice Viognier, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Syrah. Being able to discuss how the fields are irrigated and managed and how the varieties were selected at... More

We did a tasting here one Sunday with a group of friends. We were able to sit on the patio and enjoy our tasting. We packed a picnic and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The wine was superb as was the service. The man who poured our tasting was very informative about the wines. This has been one of our favorite... More

Carmel Valley is predominantly Burgundian so when I saw the Viognier on the tasting list, I was excited to try. Wanting to skip the Chardonnays, I asked to taste the Viognier, but the pourer recommended tasting it last because it is their "biggest" wine (?) I could maybe understand how a Viognier could stand up to a light Pinot Noir,... More

Found this tasting room to be great! Amazing wines... Only comment to staff like your wines... "breath a little!". So much knowledge there and stories were interesting. I will go back! Carmel Valley sooo much better than NAPA!

Come for the wine. The winery is actually in Santa Lucia Highlands on the Salinas side of the coastal range, with the tasting room in Carmel Valley Village (near Bernardus). The vineyards are on what was originally a family cattle ranch, started in the mid-1800s. The cattle ranch moved to Carmel Valley, to make room for the vines on one... More

My wife and I love to visit wineries and find wineries that are small producers but make a great product. While having dinner at the Pacific's Edge restaurant, I asked the wine sommelier what recommendations he had for wine tastings. He asked if we had heard of Boekenoogen wines - we had not but were up for visiting the tasting... More
