Good wine. Easy-going and laid back atmosphere. The dog, (Max?) was amazingly well behaved and I loved seeing him the in the store. I loved the books on the counters of "Dogs of Wine". That was fun to look through. Got a bottle from here.

We stopped in last week while waiting for a dinner table down the street and enjoyed our flight and the live music so much we came back for another glass after dinner and are looking into getting some cases shipped to is. So glad we wandered in the right direction and found this!

This place was one of the best one that we found during our trip, because of the wine quality, but mainly because of the friendliness of the staff. She was able to connect with every single customer personalizing their experience explaining in detail all tasting. Highly recommend stopping by for a nice experience.

The young lady pouring was not very engaging, she provided the name and brief details and then went and sat with her phone until our next pour. Nevertheless, we enjoyed several of the wines and decided to purchase a couple of bottles. The... More

After having lunch at Bubba Gump's we wandered into Carmel Ridge tasting room. They were pet friendly. We tasted some very nice wines. We especially liked their chardonay and 2012 pinot noir . The wines were reasonably priced. We had a nice conversation with lady who was pouring. This was a very pleasant stop.

We thoroughly enjoyed our respite from sightseeing at this understated tasting room, and the wine is fabulous, especially type the red blend and reserve pinot noir. We plan on visiting the winery our next trip to the Monterey area.

Very personable young lady helped us decide on the wine we were interested in. Then we sat and enjoyed the view out the window to the Bay. It was a very pleasant time. They were preparing for a Halloween party, which we would have joined in on, had we not had other plans... Loved all the dogs that were welcome... More

Great wine, my favorite reds with a fantastic view if you sit by the left side! Friendliest staff. Will waive the tasting fee with a bottle purchase. Dogs are welcome.
