Monterey County was voted as one of the top five worldwide wine destinations by the Wine Enthusiast! With over 13 wine tasting rooms located in Carmel-by-the-Sea, one can stay in a Carmel inn and walk to intimate venues that feature local wines from one of California's premier wine-producing regions. These tasting rooms are representative of the wine which is being discovered by wine connoisseurs coming to California expressly to taste our local wines.

Massa Estate

Massa Estate wines are produced from 100% certified organically grown grapes and are bottled at its Carmel Valley, California winery. Organic growing practices, in addition to dry farming, have created a natural environment for the production of premium and award winning wines that have received worldwide recognition.

Cowgirl Winery

The Cowgirl Winery Tasting Room is housed in a vintage redwood barn nestled in sunny Carmel Valley. Our super friendly, slightly sassy, country chic Cowgirls are always eager to welcome guests into the Cowgirl lifestyle and make your visit memorable. Inside the Barn, you'll find a cozy reclaimed wood bar offering a spectrum of local wines including several chilled varietals and Bordeaux style reds. The Barn also houses a seemingly never ending boutique of locally handmade jewelry, Cowgirl hats, books, housewares and more. This is a great place to find unique gifts for your loved ones or even spoil yourself.

Our gracious outdoor space offers a beautiful rustic farm-like atmosphere, where you can try your luck feeding our tenacious free range chickens! Just don't chase the hens, else our rooster might have to teach you some manners. More active visitors can enjoy a glass of wine and practice roping our “barnyard” Bull, compete with your friends in corn hole, or show off your bocce ball skills with a bottle of wine down at the Bocce ball courts located below our vines of Pinot Noir grapes!

Wrath Wines

Ocean Ave, Carmel, CA 93923
(831) 620-1909

The wrath of Juno sent Aeneas wandering the Mediterranean in Vergil's Aeneid . For the ancient Romans, ira or wrath, was a tool of a god, an unstoppable anger driven by forces greater than man. One can argue that we see such fury in both the might of nature and the passion of art. Wrath appears in the edgy power of Robert Plant's voice and the raw wail of Eric Clapton's guitar. It is frozen into Jackson Pollock's violent splatters of paint. Wrath is in the wall of maritime fog that rolls into the Salinas Valley and the relentless afternoon winds that scream through our grape trellises.

Wrath wines represent a nexus of nature and an unbridled passion for winemaking. Welcome to Wrath.

Galante Vineyards

Dolores St, Carmel, CA 93923
(831) 624-3800

At Galante Vineyards our philosophy is simple: grow the finest grapes possible and let the fruit express itself in the wine. Since all of our grapes are estate grown, each bottle of wine we produce embodies the characteristics of our unique region, exhibiting the natural flavors that are born from the land.

The Galante Family has a long history in the Monterey area. Owner Jack Galante's great grandfather, J.F. Devendorf, was the founder of the town of Carmel. He later built the Pine Inn and the prestigious Highlands Inn.

In 1969, Jack's parents purchased a 700-acre cattle ranch in rustic Carmel Valley. While still maintaining a working cattle ranch, the Galantes, in 1983, began growing premium grapes on their property, specializing in Cabernet Sauvignon. In 1994, Jack Galante decided to build a winery and use some of his grapes to produce ultra-premium estate bottled wines. Today Galante is recognized as one of the premier Cabernet Sauvignon producers in Monterey County and all of California.

We also participate in and hold many events throughout the year. Please refer to our calendar of events. For a one on one approach, tours and tasting, by appointment only, offer a personal look into our winemaking process. We can also arrange a private tasting/party for small groups or large corporations.

Silvestri Vineyards

7th between San Carlos and Dolores, 7th Ave, Carmel, CA 93921
(831) 625-0111

Silvestri Vineyards began in the Piedmont region of Italy as an immigrant's dream of a better life. The year was 1908 when a young girl from Castell'Alfero, and a young boy from Navarro prepared to leave home and travel to America. Joseph (Joe) Silvestri and Eugenia (Jenny) Martinetto would later meet and marry in New York's 'Little Italy' where they worked in the restaurant business. With the arrival of their children, they moved across the Hudson River to Teaneck, New Jersey, with the hope of building a life and a business of their own.

In 1950 a grandson would be added to their legacy and it was in this grandson that the Silvestri family would once again feel the wanderlust that had brought them to this land of dreams and opportunity. Finding his voice in music, Alan Silvestri traveled to Los Angeles in search of his dream through the pursuit of his art. Music was his vehicle for expression but food and wine, the staples of life at home, were never far from his heart. After meeting his wife Sandra in 1978, they would often travel back east where family events and occasions were always marked by wonderful food served with Jenny and Joe's homemade wine.
