Great place to taste a lot of local wineries and get a sense if you like it. The view is great and the setting is casual for the novice. I wouldn't buy here, just that but a good break from the day.

Visiting a Taste of Monterey is truly a joy...something that I look forward to every time I visit the Monterey Penninsula. The best thing about the place is the friendly and knowledgeable staff. One steps up to the wine bar and is served one of several local vineyards offerings (they have over 20 wineries to pour from) ...as you gaze out the window...the beautiful Monterey Bay unfolds before you. One of the very special benefits of purchasing wine there is that you can bring the wine to any of abot 20 restaurants in the Monterey Bay area...and without a corkage fee...at one restaurant alone on their list...the corkage fee is $25.00. Do not miss up on this great opportunity to have a great afternoon while in Monterey.

The most amazing thing about the Taste of Monterey is the panoramic view from the windows. You can buy a glass of wine and just sit, chat, and enjoy the view. Unfortunately, when I've winetasted there, I'm not that impressed with the Tasting menue, which is such a bummer because Monterey County boasts some spectacular wine from the entire county. The gift shop area does have some great finds.

This is a great place to go to taste many of the wines from the area. You can then use the information that you get from here to pick out vineyards to visit.
