The Monterey location is closed for good and that is really sad. We loved that place and it wasn't too bad of a drive from the Bay area. Any reason is good to go visit Monterey but Ventana's tasting room was a high-lite for us....More

We stopped here on our way out of Monterey. The grounds are lovely but we were hoping to be able to "stroll the winery" a little more. Both staff members were helping another group when we arrived, so we started the tasting by ourselves. I...More

The Ventana wines are great! We were introduced to the medal winner Chardonnay on a fishing trip 2 years ago. We certainly do appreciate the quality and the price if these fine local wines.

We spent a very delightful hour here. Ashley was our 'guide' was VERY knowledgeable about the wines, vineyards and the wine process. We learned a lot and enjoyed her "presentation". The wines were very good. We are glad we decided to stop here!

Richard did a great job going over wine tasting etiquette and learning about the central coast wine specialties. Ventana wine is great and was a highlight of our wine tour. We are going back to buy more to take home from the trip. Highly recommended!

This cozy tasting room, situated next to Tarpy's Roadhouse, offered a wine for every palate. They were closing out a Chardonnay vintage for $90 a case and it was flying out of the tasting room. The staff was well-informed and patient in explaining the vintages...More
