I didn't know this famous film score writer also produced wines from his own Winery until I just came across his tasting room in Carmel CA. For a film buff and wine lover like me this was a perfect combination. You can try Alan Silvestri's wines whilst his music is playing in the background and a slideshow of the movie... More

One of the people at the Cypress Inn said this was her favorite winery. After tasting the chardonnay we could understand why. It was a fun experience chatting with the two people working the bar. We enjoyed it so much that we went back two days later for another tasting. They also supplied dog treats for our four legged friend.... More

Several of our favorite wines come from Silvestri Vineyards, so we did not miss the opportunity to viist their tasting room to sample new vintages and to introduce them to our daughter and her husband. The hostess was friendly and knowledgeable about the wines and the wine makers. The tasting room is very nice and accommodating to people with dogs.... More

This was my first time visiting Carmel and my first wine tasting experience. Both can be described as delightful. The woman pouring greeted us kindly and got right down to business with generous pours and a detailed description of each wine. I loved the Estate Pinot Noir. The space was comfortable and my fellow tasters were friendly and talkative. If... More

Our inn gave us a coupon for a free wine tasting so we dropped in. They were busy, but squeezed us in. I am not a wine drinker, but their wines were good, and the service was friendly, we went back the next day to purchase some wine and they gave us another wine tasting and mentioned they remembered us...

Love Silvestri wines, thats probably why I chose this place to be our first and only (currently) wine club membership. Always good and attentive service by the employees and always great wines-just picked up my latest wine club shipment and can't wait to try them!

Best tasting room in Carmel. The wines are great and at a really good price point. This is my favorite tasting room, and has some seriously delicious wines. Be sure to listen to the music that they play there, it's by the composer who owns the vineyard.

We stopped in at Silvestri Vineyards to taste their wines. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed many of their wines especially one of the pinots and the syrah! Decided to join their wine club, so we will be back!

Tasted the wines yesterday and they were big and lush and but a little lacking in character. Our host was great and kept us moving even though we weren't at the bar.

A very enjoyable tasting experience in a dog friendly tasting room. Very nice wines. There were 4 other parties tasting at the same time but it did not seem crowded.
