Which restaurants have the best wine offerings in Monterey, Carmel & Big Sur?

Answers from Our Experts (1)

Wine Country restaurants abound in California, and the central coast is no exception. We suggest you make reservations at Casanova, Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star Marinus and Sierra Mar if you’re looking to unwind with a glass of quality vino in hand.

1. Casanova. It's one of Carmel’s first European-type bistros. The restaurant’s hand-dug wine cellar contains a staggering 30,000 bottles.

2. Marinus. Located on a winery, the Four-Star restaurant Marinus can’t help but offer a great selection of wine. Try the Marinus Estate Bordeaux-style red, the winery’s specialty.

3. Sierra Mar. The Four-Star restaurant has one of the most comprehensive wine cellars in North America, with both well-known producers and hard-to-find selections represented on the list.
