The Pierce Ranch tasting room is located in a charming Victorian cottage on Wave Street (one block up the hill from Cannery Row) in Monterey, California. I have been a regular patron there for several years. Josh Pierce, the proprietor has created a friendly and warm environment for the enjoyment of his intelligently priced wines....many of which have "roots" (please... More

One of my favorites along our southern Cali wine tour! Stopped in on a quiet Wednesday afternoon and enjoyed so many great wines ~ I LOVE that they do unusual varietals like Touriga, Tinto Cão and Arinto. If you appreciate the road less traveled then they are a MUST TRY for you! The tasting room is small and cozy with... More

Good tasting wine. Got a bottle of the Red. Easy in and out. If your downtown you should stop in. You can buy wine by the glass. I think this place would be great latter in the day so you could talk to the locals.

We had heard about this tasting room from several people, so we knew we needed to stop. They were very helpful and accommodating. Great selection of different and not typical kinds of wines.

We stumbled upon Pierce Ranch when leaving the antique store it's located next to. Kay was a wonderful host who made us feel more like guests in her home than patrons in her workplace. She was absolutely wonderful! The wines were also quite good with some very different varieties than we have had in the past. In the hustle and... More

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.
