Different from the usual fancy tasting room, this is a much more fun and casual tasting experience. Their wines were excellent especially if you like big, full bodied reds. This is a must do if you are in the area.

Nice setup outside, including a pickup truck turned into a seating area. Tasted the red flight with Pino Noir, red blend, Cab and Malbec.

Yeah...the Monterey Aquarium is great, but we needed a glass of wine. Cowgirl Winery came to our rescue. We had a lovely afternoon sipping wine while our 3 year old watched the chickens and played lawn games. Thank you.
