Wine Tasting on Cannery Row
Guests and locals alike sip, sample and savor on Cannery Row. More than 41,000 acres of vineyards cover Monterey County's sun-soaked hillsides and fog-chilled valleys. Here, diverse topography and ocean-influenced microclimates combine for a growing season that stretches up to 60 days longer than in most grape growing regions. The result is a dynamic array of over 40 varietals of red and white wines vibrant in flavor and unique in character. Some 175 vintners and growers blend grapes from the county's nine American Viticultural Areas (AVAs), and many welcome guests for tastings and vineyard tours. Locally produced wines pair beautifully with the Monterey county cuisine featured at many dining establishments and regional wine lists are available at several Cannery Row restaurants.
