The Monterey Coast conjures up visions of Carmel and Big Sur, of Steinbeck and Cannery Row and Pebble Beach. Today, Monterey County is also becoming famous as one of the best places on earth to grow Vitis vinifera – the very same elements that make-up the area’s great scenic beauty contribute to a diversity and perfection of soils and climate that produce world-class grapes and award-winning wines.
Monterey County is a world-class wine and grape-growing region, which the MCVGA strives for all to experience. In order for people to experience Monterey’s wine country, MCVGA helps organize many events including the Motorized Monterey Wine Country Tour.
