Wine tasting has never been so convenient, or inexpensive! While most people know that California is a premier destination for those looking to sample some of world’s best vino, wine tours can often get a bit pricey. That is why Carmel-by-the-Sea’s new self-guided Wine Walk is a perfect option.
Encompassed within a few blocks of this coastal California village are 13 different wine tasting rooms. Begin at Southern Latitude Wines on Ocean Avenue to sample specialties from Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, and South America, then pass City Hall and turn onto 7th Avenue to La Bicyclette for some rustic European cuisine with your wine flights. Next door at Galante Vineyards you will have the chance to sample local estate-grown wines from the first tasting room in Carmel. As you continue on this self-guided stroll, you will not only be exposed to delicious vino, but also art and specialty foods, including cheese and olive oil tastings.
