Carmel Wine Tasting Rooms

Downtown Carmel-by-the-Sea has become a bona fide wine tasting destination, with enough tasting rooms to keep visitors busy for a weekend and even more about to open. Start your wine tasting exploration with these top picks and keep your eyes peeled for even more new tasting rooms on the way!

Tasting Rooms

Caraccioli Cellars offers sparkling and still wines in an elegant tasting room that is open well into the evening. Enjoy small plates or cheese as you sample the wines on offer. Just down the street from Caraccioli Cellars is Scheid Vineyards Wine Lounge situated on San Carlos and 7th in Carmel. Be sure to try their award-winning Pinot Noirs. Next head over to Trio Carmel where you can sample olive oils from around the world, balsamic and flavored vinegars, and exceptional small-vineyard Monterey Country wines. Finally, stop by Manzoni Cellars located in the Paseo Courtyard for their award-winning Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Syrah and Port wines.
