A family-run winery, Caraccioli Cellars takes pride in developing wines that deliver an expression true to vintage and estate. Since 2006, Caraccioli Cellars’ commitment began utilizing Santa Lucia Highlands grapes solely and has transitioned to a complete estate winery. Internationally renowned winemaker the late Michel Salgues founded the techniques that form the foundation of our winemaking practices. Under the direction of Scott Caraccioli and the guidance and daily practices of Greg and Chris Vita his legacy lives on.
Their award-winning sparkling and still wines are available at their tasting room in Carmel-by-the-Sea. In 2022, three of the four gold medals awarded to US sparkling wine producers in The Champagne & Sparkling Wine World Championships 2022 were awarded to Caraccioli Cellars sparkling wines.
