Vacation in Carmel: what should I drink?

danna | Apr 27, 2011 05:38 AM

I'll be in Carmel/Monterrey/Santa Cruz next month, and I'd like to order local wines in restaurants while I'm there. I rather doubt I'll get my husband in any tasting rooms. But just in case, if you had to pick one in the area, what you you pick?

What types of grapes do you think are made especially well in the area? Producers to look for? FYI, I have reservations at Passionfish (Pacific Grove) and Manresa(Los Gatos). From what I've read, the former has a bargain of a wine list, and the latter is just the opposite. Thanks!
