- One of the world’s deepest marine canyons
- Only marine canyon that directly impacts a major wine growing region
- Deep, cold waters influence weather throughout Monterey County
From jellyfish and sea otters to oak trees and grapes, everything in Monterey County is directly influenced by the Bay and Canyon. The wines of the Blue Grand Canyon are no exception. Hidden beneath the surface of the Monterey Bay is an enormous submarine canyon that is sixty miles long and two miles deep. The largest and deepest on the West Coast, this canyon is also unique in its close proximity to the shoreline. Comparable in size and depth to its more visible counterpart in Arizona, this Monterey geologic wonder has been nicknamed the Blue Grand Canyon™.
