Carmel is a cute town to walk around in, and what better way to do it with some wine! You get to choose 9 wineries to taste at, and all will let you ‘share’ a taste (which is what we did). 1 passport = 9 cards, and for $65 it is not a bad deal (especially after a tasting where you don’t buy anything). It was hit and miss, but there were a few wineries that really stood out (Scheid, Caraccioli and Dawn’s Dream). Being Carmel, it always adds to the total wine walking experience when a dog is licking your feet at a tasting…kinda sorta. However, all the people running the tasting rooms were very friendly and informative, and all the folk we met along the way were very nice. If you are just up for tasting at a few wineries, this may not be for you…however the passport cards you buy never expire (like a ‘forever wine stamp’), so if you know you will return or have some friends to pass them on to it is worth it. Overall, it is a good time!
