monterey/santa cruz mtn wineries?

brad kaplan | Sep 4, 2001 03:24 PM

hi, heading down to the monterey area with my parents in a month, and was wondering if anyone had any insight into interesting wineries in the region or on the way.

my father particularly likes big Bordeaux-style reds, but i have little familiarity with the wine that is produced down this way. has anyone stopped at the david bruce tasting room near saratoga? i know they make some nice pinot noir, but not sure if they are worth a stop.

we're looking for either great wine or just interesting stops, whether for the beauty of the vineyards or for the knowledge of the winemakers. any tips would be appreciated.

and by the way, we will likely try dinner at passionfish one night based on several people's comments - thanks!
