This little winery, a couple streets off of the main road, was a find! We had a groupon, but if you want to taste, it's only $5.00 and they refund the tasting price if you purchase a bottle. They pour five pours and each one is better then the next. The wines range in price from $17 to $22 a... More

I stopped by there this afternoon and met a very friendly server as well as one of the owners. Had a great conversation with both of them, and learned a lot about their very unusual types of wines for this region, almost all Spanish and Portuguese, including some rare ones. They opened several bottles beyond the ones on the standard... More

What a great find! From the charming, inviting exterior to the friendly staff and limited-edition wines, this should be on everyone's Monterey itinerary. Take the time to talk wine and learn why the owners chose the varieties they are growing. Stop in on a Friday night and enjoy live music to kick start the weekend's activities. Located near the tourist... More

The pourer was very generous and stayed open a little longer so we could enjoy our time tasting the wine. The wines were all very good and different than what we expected.

This tasting room was recommended by a waitress at a restaurant on Fisherman's Wharf, and we are glad we found it on the way back to our hotel (Best Western Victorian Inn). It is located in an early 1900's home in a secluded area of Wave Ave and only charged $5 for tastings of 5 outstanding wines. The fees were... More

Dangerously within walking distance of our place, this little tasting room has friendly service each time & GREAT wines in the Portuguese style. Nice local spot not to be missed with a good wine club.

Great place to meet friends after work. We love to sit on the patio. Sometimes we take a Gianni's pizza in, taste wine, and stay for hours. The staff is extremely friendly and accommodating. As a wine club member, our tastings are free. Love it! Also, locals park for free in the cannery row lot.all these freebies leave more money... More

Wine tasting at it's best. Not only is it my favorite tasting room, it's my favorite place to hang out, period. The room is a house built 'back in the day'. It is quaint and cozy, one block up from Cannery Row. Hardwood floors and small back garden area. The owner and other staff are friendly, down to earth and... More

We stumbled across Pierce while visiting Monterey for our anniversary. The ambience of their tasting room is lovely and inviting. I was really impressed with the different selection of wines - i.e. tempranillo, tourbillon - btw, I highly recommend both. The owner's son was behind the bar pouring drinks. He was incredibly nice and talked to us all about the... More
