Wineries who used to have wine tasting rooms at their vineyards throughout Monterey County, now have opened up tasting rooms in Carmel-by-the-Sea and Carmel Valley. Today, I spent the afternoon at the 18 tasting rooms located in Carmel Valley Village, California. Yes, I parked my car and walked all of them, although I did not stop and sip wine at each. But it was fun to see the layouts, some have art displayed on their walls, many have gardens to sit and enjoy.

In fact, when you look at that map, the "East End Wine Row" of 7 tasting rooms at the east end of Carmel Valley Village will be holding their SPRING CELEBRATION tomorrow, Sunday, April 28th between 1-5PM during which you can enjoy small bites while watching cooking and gardening demonstrations. And, of course, taste wine at the participating tasting rooms. Tickets for the event can be purchased for $35 per person, $5 of which benefits Voices for Children--CASA of Monterey County.
However, today I decided to stop off at the Georis Wine Tasting garden, found a small table in a quiet area that was partially shaded by a tree, and ordered a glass of Georis' 2012 Pinot Grigio ($9.50) and the Artisan Cheese Plate (for two for $14). This is part of a small menu of appetizers that can be ordered from the adjacent Georis Restaurant and that compliment the wine tasting experience.
