The Carmel Wine Walk by-the-Sea™ is proud to announce Carmel Road Winery as the newest addition to the prestigious group of tasting rooms clustered in the 1 square mile of the downtown Carmel-by-the-Sea.
With the addition of Carmel Road Winery to the Wine Walk, that brings the tasting room count to a total of 15 on the Wine Walk. The tasting rooms include: Blair Estate, Caraccioli Cellars, Carmel Road Winery, Dawn’s Dream, De Tierra Vineyards, Figge Cellars, Galante Vineyards, Manzoni Cellars, Scheid Vineyards, Shale Canyon, Silvestri Vineyards, Smith Family Wines, Windy Oaks, Wrath Wines and Vino Napoli.
“We were excited to include Carmel Road Winery to the Wine Walk,” states Scott Caraccioli, VP of Caraccioli Cellars and chair of the Wine Walk group, “the Arroyo Seco appellation is well represented in their wines and the Wine Walk is a great way for them to showcase the best of what Monterey Wine has to offer.”
The Carmel Wine Walk by-the-Sea™ is a self paced, self guided tour to the tasting rooms which are all within in the Carmel-by-the-Sea business district. Tasters can visit each room to sample local estate-grown wines from the first tasting room (Galante) to the newest (Carmel Road Winery).
The Carmel Wine Walk by-the-Sea™ also offers the Wine Tasting Passport for $65 which provides tasters with a Wine Walk flight at their choice of any 9 of the 15 tasting rooms. The Wine Walk Passport allows guests the ability to choose and taste the distinct flavors of any nine of the fifteen tasting room all in one day ―or to spread the tastings over a weekend, several weeks, or even months. The Wine Tasting Passport is available for purchase at the Carmel Chamber of Commerce Visitors Center on San Carlos between 5th & 6th in Carmel-by-the-Sea or online at http://www.carmelwinewalk.org.
Each tasting room on the Wine Walk is pleased to offer restaurant recommendations or to call for reservations. As an added bonus, corkage will be waived for bottles purchased at a Carmel Wine Walk by-the-Sea™ tasting room at participating restaurants for one bottle per visit, per party with official Wine Walk label.
