A Taste of Monterey adds a unique Wine Country element to any dinner occasion. We offer plated or buffet sit-down dinners and strolling buffets at our facility and we can customize the event to your group. Your dinner will be preceded by a wine tasting reception featuring a selection of Monterey County wines. Once seated, we serve wines to complement your meal, or we can create an interactive wine and food pairing to enhance your experience.

Our on-site coordinator will help you develop the space and create the atmosphere you desire for your guests. Music and flowers can be arranged, and audio equipment is also available.

Scheduling a tasting reception and dinner wine pairing is made simple with the three options we offer. Each program is based on a per person fee, plus an administration/staff fee of $50 per wine station.
