Housed in a renovated circa 1918 sardine cannery, the flagship tasting room on Monterey’s Cannery Row allows one to bask in the history of the place as well as the decades-long heritage of the many wineries represented here. An entire wall of windows overlooks the magnificent Monterey Bay, providing a stunning backdrop for a wine tasting adventure.

Given that all but one of the county’s AVAs are located in the Salinas Valley, Salinas was the logical choice for a second location that opened in 2000. The Oldtown Salinas center is located just blocks from Steinbeck’s boyhood home and adjacent to the famed National Steinbeck Center, inside a 110 year old historic building.

When Bobbie Flay, celebrity chef and host of the Food Network’s Food Nation series, decided to feature Monterey in an episode, Ken was called on to present and pair the area’s wines with local cuisine. It was a natural fit, and A Taste of Monterey had its debut on national television. “We are so proud of our area’s heritage and the unique foods and wines that reflect the many cultures that call Monterey County home,” says Ken. “It was fun to work with Bobby Flay and see how taken he was with the whole experience.
