“Great time”
Reviewed 17 April 2012

We were at the Lexus tent event. It would have received 5 stars if not such a long like to get in. Once in, we were able to enjoy many options...too many wines actually for one visit but it was very nice anyway. The drive there was gorgeous too!

“fabulous views, wines, atmosphere.”
Reviewed 11 April 2012

Stopped in on a whim with our 2 kids. We sampled some lovely wines and chatted with others at the bar while the kids watched otters and seals in the bay. Surely one of the best views for wine tasting in the world. Left with 3 bottles of new wines we loved.

“Great views and good wine”
Reviewed 5 April 2012

Got here before it was too crowded, which is recommended. We opted to sit by the windows and go back and forth to the bar for our tasting, which made it even nicer. It's a bit pricey since most area tasting rooms of a single vineyard offer free sampling, but you do get a rebate of your $8 minimum tasting fee if you purchase $30 or more in the gift shop (including wine). And it is lovely to taste the wine while looking out over Monterey Bay.

“Sipping wine by the sea”
Reviewed 29 March 2012

This tasting room for several Monterey County wines is in a beautiful location, overlooking Monterey Bay. It's a great opportunity to sample some of the really great wines that come out of this region. You can sit at a windowside table and watch the otters playing outside. They also sell wine related gifts. This place can get crowded so earlier is usually better.

“nice views,great variety”
Reviewed 29 March 2012

features a great view and samples many of the area's wines. If you do not have the time to visit the individual tasting rooms around the countryside. Get over to Ventana if you can.
