Wine Festival

Food & Wine Events

Nearly every event on Monterey County's jam-packed calendar features a collection of culinary creations and wine celebrations reflective of the destination's people, culture and agriculture. A handful of events, though, are dedicated primarily to gastronomical pleasures. 

For die-hard foodies, Pebble Beach Food and Wine in April matches 200 acclaimed wineries with 60 celebrity chefs for a weekend of wine and beverage tastings, cooking demonstrations and some of the most exclusive, unique dining opportunities available in the world. The Big Sur Food & Wine Festival is yet another opportunity to indulge in some of the finest wines and gourmet foods with the stunning Big Sur coastline as its backdrop. 

Rub elbows with Monterey County's skilled winemakers at the Winemakers' Celebration held in Carmel. Over 125 wines made from 42 different varietals will be available for sampling. Guests will also have the rare opportunity to ask questions and discuss the wines with the winemakers themselves.

Ever tried artichoke ice cream? Check it out at the Artichoke Festival. Culinary artichoke creations at the May festival include breads, soups, burritos and more. Also enjoy wine tasting, an agricultural art competition, a parade and live entertainment.
