Wine tasting in Monterey

Galante Vineyards

Galante Vineyards

Galante Vineyards was the first tasting room in Carmel. But then, Carmel only exists because the winery’s owner Jack Galante’s great grandfather, J.F. Devendorf, founded it. We recently visited the tasting room and discovered that there was more to like than just a long history!

Caraccioli Cellars is a great example of combining all the best elements of wine tasting into a whole that is greater than the sum of the parts!
