When it comes to pairing world-class hospitality and memorable experiences, Pebble Beach Resorts shines in a league of its own.
On most occasions, golf takes center stage but if your leaning favors that of an oenophile, now is the time to treat yourself to a visit to The Inn at Spanish Bay, located along the 17-Mile Drive in Monterey.
Stave Wine Cellar, an intimate wine lounge and part wine shop located at this idyllic retreat, is hosting a series of enlightening sommelier-led flight nights and tasting events through early October. Each class offers both lively discussion and delicious pours, and ranges from $25 to $100 per person. The upcoming schedule includes:
Wine Tasting Part 1 – Aroma Training – Tuesday, Aug. 7 at 6 p.m. ($40)
Guests will learn about the essential aromas found in the wine world and with which wines they are most associated. The evening will be a rare opportunity to smell the aromas next to the wines.
The Krug Music Experience – Thursday, Aug. 9, seating at 5:30 and 6:30 p.m. ($100)
Krug has collaborated with composers to pair each of its wines with a piece of music to create The Krug Music Experience. Guests will experience a symphony of flavors and sounds during this special tasting event.
