Review of Ventana Vineyards

Ventana Vineyards
Ranked #43 of 105 things to do in Monterey

Reviewed 12 September 2013

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 and varieties, and greeted regulars and newcomers with enthusiasm. There's a shaded outdoor terrace for tasting -- white table cloths included! The Pinot Noir was the personal favorite. Definitely worth a stop. Tasting fee: $5.

Richard's educational tasting explanations were interesting and humorous. We quite enjoyed our time at Ventana!

Visited this little tasting room and really enjoyed it. Outstanding Chardonnay. My daughter-in-law and I purchased a couple of glasses of it after the tasting and sat outside and enjoyed the quiet patio. Ended up buying a bottle of their excellent Pinot Noir for my husband.

Stopped at Ventana as part of the Wine Trolley Tour. The key to this visit was a Ventana staff member named Richard who spent an hour with us on the patio. Richard led our 5 wine tasting while providing the answers to all the questions we had. He's entertaining, knowledgeable, friendly, and really a pleasant guy to be around.

Our wine tasting here ended up in us purchasing all of the wine for our daughter's wedding. There is a fantastic selection of wines to taste and they were offering an amazing sale on some excellent Chardonnay by the case and their Red Table Wine which was very good. The tasting fee is only $5 and there is a lovely patio area where you can relax with your tastings.

The staff is very friendly and helpful and will answer any questions you may have about the wines. Love this place! :)
