"The River Road Wine Trail is an association of Monterey County winery tasting rooms, located primarily along the River Road / Foothill Road corridor, on the Santa Lucia Highlands bench above the Salinas Valley. Charming and intimate, these tasting rooms specialize in limited release vintages and genuine hospitality. Often, visitors will be sampling with the actual winemaker. Conveniently situated just east of Monterey and Carmel, the River Road Wine Trail has become one of the Central Coast’s premiere wine touring destinations."
