Nice selection of Wines - Huge selection of oil/vinegars is dead on. We had a very enjoyable tasting and purchased a few oils (a Dark Chocolate and a Garlic infused). What is great about this place is that each urn of flavored oils has a spigot and supply of small tasting cups so you can try each. On a street... More

This was a great place to wine taste. They have 3 different wineries to try from and you can pick the 5 bottles you want to taste. Out of about 20 or so options. The wine was good and the lady, Ann, who served us was awesome. Very knowledgeable about the local grapes and answered a bunch of our questions!... More

We stopped in for wine tasting and ended up tasting the olive oil and wine. An enjoyable experience. The wines were from local wineries, a nice variety of selections. The staff was very helpful discussing the wine and the olive oil.

My husband and I had a wonderful time at Trio. We sampled a selection of wine and took home a bottle of Syrah. The wines we tasted were from 3 vineyards - all were great - the whites were crisp and tart, the Reds were robust. Delicious! Then we sampled the olive oils and vinegars. They have quite the selection.... More

Ok, so here is the bottom line. This is a very cute shop and an interesting concept. Offers a broad selection of very good olive oils and balsamic vinegars. But the reason we went was to taste wine. Trio Carmel is the tasting outlet for three wine producers: at this time they were Ian Brand, Mesa Del Sol Vineyards and... More

We found this place through Carmel Food Tour and absolutely fell in love with the Olive Oil & Balsamic. Everyone was so knowledgeable and helpful. They pour your bottles of olive oil & balsamic right when you order it and you can sample all of the different flavors. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone that loves olive oil...

Out of our countless wine tasting room visits in Carmel, this was our most memorable. It was part art gallery, part balsamic vinegar and olive oil tasting and part wine tasting room. It made for a very interesting visit. The owner was behind the counter and provided in-depth knowledge of the wines. All were very good, particularly their pinot.
