Now in its 44th year The Monterey Wine Festival has established itself as the premier wine & food event in Monterey. Saturday & Sunday lucky guests will find savoring bites of wonderful foods that pair well with great wines, beer and spirits. Now the festival features many new editions like cocktail camp, an entire array of craft spirits and more that keep guests happy and the palate alive with anticipation. Beers and live music added into the mix make this a not to be missed celebration.
Included in the Saturday Ticket Price is a Chowdah Challenge & Celebration!Professional chefs from the West Coast continually challenge themselves to make extraordinary chowders and in the 44th Annual Monterey Wine Festival. These restaurants are coming to pay homage to their own special & customer favorite chowders – the stuff that is legendary. Clam, Seafood and Creative Chowders are simmered to perfection and the order of the day. Guests can sample these previous award winning chowders, pick their own personal favorites and simply enjoy cuisine that has become synonymous with Monterey and coastal destinations. A selection of local & international cheeses and charcuterie will be available as well. Add live music and this is just an absolutely joyful experience. It goes without saying that wines that pair with chowders will also be available and enhance the celebration even further.
Included in the Sunday Ticket Price is another seaworthy celebration. Highlights are our Kings of Calamari and Masters of Mussels! Locals and restaurants from afar bring the best in these two categories. Different seasonings and flavor combinations allow for much to taste as throughout the day different offerings are released alongside an array of international cheeses and charcuterie and more. Guests continue the celebration with a completely mouth-watering experience from both the wineries, spirits and beers and bounty of food. A Cultured Cheese & Charcuterie Experience courtesy of Sysco.
