As we're sure you already know, the tasting room in Carmel-by-the-Sea was able to open for sit-down tastings last week. We are operating on slightly reduced hours now so please check online or email/call ahead to let us know you're coming if possible.
However, what we really wanted to announce is the best way to socially distance, get outdoors AND taste wine all in one go. Call it "tail gate tastings", "rent-a-row" or whatever you'd like; but, in the coming weeks we are going to be available for Justin and/or Kori to host you in one of our Santa Lucia Highlands vineyards. The exciting part is that you'll also get to learn about our larger ranches which not only contain our vineyards but also lemon and avocado orchards. Guests will also get some homemade SLH guacamole* using those same avos and lemons - buy enough wine & we may send you home with some stuff to make your own!
This is something that we plan to be able to offer through the summer & up until harvest time. After that point as weather becomes more unpredictable we still are looking for ways to let you experience more of the Santa Lucia Highlands beyond the fantastic wines. Please contact us in advance firstname.lastname@example.org with your prefered date(s) & time(s) and we will send you a link in order to pay the tasting fees in advance to secure your reservation. Right now some available dates (but not entirely limited to) include: June 21st-24th, June 26th-28th, July 2nd & 3rd. We are not available July 5-12th but after that through the end of July and August most weekends should be available.
