Our trip to Carmel By The Sea would certainly not be complete unless we did some wine tasting! California does produce some of my favorite wines. I was born in CA so perhaps their grapes are in my bloodline? LOL.
There are wine rooms on every block in this town. We took a stroll into the Galante Vineyards tasting room. There was a good social echo coming out of their propped open door. It sounded inviting, so we literally followed the vibe thinking, we’ll just pop in for a minute. Well, that minute lasted more than an hour and before we knew it, we tasted all kinds of wines from their extensive library, nibbling on cheese and snacks, chatting up the locals, and hanging out with wine guru Jack Galante himself! His family is some of the original founders of Carmel. They have a deep history here and it was fun to hear his stories. Did you know that a woman’s high heels is banned in this town? A funny local law that is still in place but not enforced. LOL! Ok, back to the wine. Our tasting only cost $30 by the way. Not a bad deal at all!
