“great tasting room!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

a lovely tasting room in carmel! John was so helpful and knowledgeable! he even offered to give us a private tour of the winery the following day but we ended up not having time to make it out there. the wines were very good and we really enjoyed this venue! it's hard to see in carmel because it is tucked back in a corner a bit but it is worth finding!

“Yee Haw ..Great Wine and Service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

This is a very little gem in Carmel by the Sea. We were just walking down the street when we noticed the little tasting room. (It's a little hidden) We walked in the small tasting room and was immediately greeted by Janet. She was a wonderful host. It's 10 dollars a tasting per person. The going rate in area :( But, if you join their club its free. I'm a member of a 2 wine clubs, only because they don't sell to large retail store and are harder to get. ( I mean why join a club, when you can get it cheaper at Safeway..cmon). And you get to choose the wines you receive or pick up.(only 2 times a year)

The wines were very good, even the Sauvigon Blanc ( I don't usually drink white wine). My favorite is the Cab....I forget the name...I guess I had too many wines.....I drank some wine after I got home...Still tasted excellent!!

“Nice tasting room in downtown Carmel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

A nice, friendly tasting room in downtown Carmel. We visited on a Sunday afternoon. There were a couple of other small groups but it wasn't overly busy. The pourer was very friendly and knowledgeable. Galante Vineyards focus on red wines- we particularly liked the Kick A$% Cab (trip advisor will not allow me to post the actual name because it is considered a profanity...) and the Double M (a malbec & merlot blend). The tasting cost $10 for 5 wines and we also got a free taste of the sauvignon blanc which wasn't on the tasting list. We would definitely recommend if you are wine tasting in downtown Carmel.

“Red wines at a cost”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

We wondered in. Wine tasting is $10 for six pours. The have one white mostly reds. Run about $25 and higher a bottle. Staff was friendly and gave us an extra tasting of a wine not on the list. Tasting and bottles higher than we are used to but a nice experience.

“Wine from Carmel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

There is a tasting room for Galante Vineyards located in downtown Carmel, which we found in our search for a present for our daughter. We arrived after two sets of group tasters were leaving, so we got a lot of attention. I did not wnat to do any wine tasting, but still wanted to determine if the wine was any good. She was very helpful and provided tastes. They do not have a good white, but their reds are stand-out. The one we chose (a light read -- 1328 Rancho 2009) is definitely one for someone learning about the finer points of good wine (not cheap!).
