Carmel Valley/Monterey Wineries

No trip to Carmel is complete without a visit to at least one of these small wineries.

Galante Vineyards:

A winery located deep in the Carmel Valley, it is very difficult for visitors to reach. A charming tasting room (located on Dolores between Ocean & Seventh Avenue) is less than one block from The Adobe Inn and open daily from 11 am - 6 pm. This is a perfect little stroll to taste several varietals. The emphasis is on Cabernet Sauvignon, with a small production, to insure quality. Production includes three labels of Cabernet Sauvignon, each very distinctive. The Sauvignon Blanc is also outstanding.

Chateau Julien Wine Estate:

This is the only winery on Carmel Valley Road that offers a combined winery and tasting room. Located six miles off of Highway 1, it offers beautiful grounds, a wonderful picnic area and an elegant winery. This is a Sangiovese vineyard, the same grape used in the making of Chianti. Tours are available but reservations are strongly suggested.

Joullian Vineyards:

Located just off Carmel Valley Road, turn right on Village Road and look for the tasting room. Chardonnay (three unique/very tasty) is over half of their production. They also offer Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot, Zinfandel and Cabernet.

Heller Estate:

Located on Carmel Valley Road at Carmel Valley Village, this is a 100 percent organic winery. The tasting room is quaint, and the gardens offer some very unusual sculptures that are worth viewing.

Robert Talbott Vineyards:

Located on Carmel Valley Road at Pilot Road, is Robert Talbott Vineyards. They specialize in only two varietals, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, resulting in very fine high quality wines. A small picnic area is available - perfect for a lunch and a glass of wine.
