If you can't make it out to the Salinas Valley, check out this tasting room in Monterey. They have all the wines that are available and will spend time with you enriching your knowledge about the local wine scene.

We hit Ventana on a tour but I would have loved more time to stay and stroll around. The tour guide there was very funny and knowledgeable. He never once made us feel like we didn't know what we were doing (and maybe we didn't). He was interesting to listen to, and I kind of wished he had been on the rest of the tour with us. Great place!

We've been here many times and it's never disappointed. Friendly, knowlegeable staff. Winery is in an historical setting next to Tarpy's Restaurant. There is a nice outdoor area set in the oak trees as well as a room which you can rent for a special event.

We have visited both the Ventana tasting rooms, one in Salinas and the other in Monterey, adjacent to Tarpy's. They are both very different in terms of feel, but either one is very unique and fun. In Monterey we sat out on a lovely stone patio, and were brought a cheese and fruit platter and sampled numerous Ventana wines. The wines that come from Ventana are wonderful, and can be an exceptionally good buy. On our last trip we had them ship us a case of their Pastiche Chardonnay, and some Reisling, which worked out to be about $60 a case plus shipping. It should definitely be a stop on any wine tasting trip. They make so many difeerent reds and whites, and they all taste delicious!
