The Monterey location is closed for good and that is really sad. We loved that place and it wasn't too bad of a drive from the Bay area. Any reason is good to go visit Monterey but Ventana's tasting room was a high-lite for us....More

The Ventana wines are great! We were introduced to the medal winner Chardonnay on a fishing trip 2 years ago. We certainly do appreciate the quality and the price if these fine local wines.

We spent a very delightful hour here. Ashley was our 'guide' was VERY knowledgeable about the wines, vineyards and the wine process. We learned a lot and enjoyed her "presentation". The wines were very good. We are glad we decided to stop here!

Richard did a great job going over wine tasting etiquette and learning about the central coast wine specialties. Ventana wine is great and was a highlight of our wine tour. We are going back to buy more to take home from the trip. Highly recommended!
