If the redwoods and the coastline don't get you, the transcendent tastes and teamwork will. Top wineries from across the region (Au Bon Climat, Calera, Justin, ROAR and Roederer among the 60) partner with chefs and restaurants (Big Sur Bakery, Deetjen's and Treebones among a dozen plus) to make Big Sur tastebuds soar like condor. Anticipate events like the opening Gateway to Big Sur gala at Highlands Inn, the Wine and Swine tasting-demo-bacchanalia at Henry Miller, the heavenly Hiking With Stemware, the L'Aventure Retrospective, wine dinners and the bargain Grand Public Tasting, with all the fire dancing, familial energy and creative gourmeting that defines the South Coast.
