One – in downtown Carmel – is a simple space dedicated to wine and pairings that takes on an informal, friendly gathering vibe when it fills up. No retro paisley tie necessary. The other is located in an even more laid-back location, where the wine comes from. The Greenfield tasting room features a deck, bocce and views. Either way, they take care of you with plenty of red, red wine. Or white. Rosé, too. And they have a sparkling wine. You may never leave.
