As you may know, the Monterey County Vintners and Growers Association is one of our clients here at Parker Sanpei & Associates, and we couldn’t be more excited to promote their upcoming Winemakers’ Celebration on Saturday, August 13 from 1 to 4 PM at The Barnyard Shopping Village in Carmel.
The wildly popular Winemakers’ Celebration is in its 19th year of hosting over Monterey County wineries to pour over 200 wines at an outdoor summer festival. The event will include culinary samples from international restaurants in the Barnyard Shopping Village, jazz music in the square, winemaking displays, and a silent auction featuring several irresistible vacations, spa treatments, and of course, WINES. Featured wineries and restaurants will offer special promotions and pricing, and the winemakers from 40 wineries will be on hand to meet guests, pour their wines, and answer burning questions like,
“How do you train your Chardonnay vines?”
“What’s your favorite Pinot Noir clone?”
