Join Santa Lucia Highlands wineries pouring some of the world’s best Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sparklers and Syrah – all from the Santa Lucia Highlands at the 15th Santa Lucia Highlands Wine Artisans Sun, Wind & Wine Festival. For many of our artisan vintners, this is their one public tasting of the year. The jewel of Monterey County just south of the beautiful Monterey Peninsula and famous destinations like Pebble Beach and Carmel-by-the-Sea, our cool, coastal wine growing region features small producers focused on single-vineyard designated wines and a handful of charming tasting rooms with stunning views of the Salinas Valley. Meet the winemakers and taste 90+ point limited-release gems from the likes of Caraccioli Cellars, Mer Soleil, Morgan, Siduri, Hahn, Belle Glos, McIntyre, Puma Road, Pessagno, ROAR, Talbott Vineyards, Pisoni, Wrath and many more. The setting is dramatic: Mer Soleil Winery, a venue not normally open to the public. Enjoy delicious gourmet bites from the region’s best chefs and restaurants . Experience our Bubbles Bar and Reserve a VIP Table with extras. Enjoy live music, and even purchase wines to take home with you.
