I'm in Monterey for the next few days, and as I had to cancel a Napa trip I'm hoping to replace the wine tasting I'm missing with a tour of local wineries in Carmel Valley. The problem is that, other than Bernardus, I know next to nothing about Central Coast wine; I've heard good things about Talbott, Georgis and Boekenoogen, but living on the East Coast haven't had any exposure to them (or any other wines from the region) whatsoever. Where is a good place to start? Any recommendations to hit or avoid?
Thanks for any tips!
