The Central Coast has emerged as an influential and varied wine source of the world. From small boutique tasting rooms to extensive tours everything is available for your pleasure.

Monterey Wine Country offers over 175 unique vineyards. Winegrowing mostly takes place in a 90-mile-long valley, with only eight primary soil types. The northernmost areas of Monterey, considered on the edge of being too cold to grow winegrapes, are greatly esteemed for their exceptional production of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Yet, the valley experiences a "thermal rainbow" spreading north-to-south, cold to warm, providing diverse ever-warming micro-climates supporting forty-two fine wine varietals.
