Monterey County is one of the largest wine growing and producing regions in California with over 175 unique vineyards. It was voted one of the top five worldwide wine travel destinations by the Wine Enthusiast!
Hidden beneath the surface of the Monterey Bay is an enormous submarine canyon nicknamed “Deep Blue Grand Canyon” that is 60 miles long and 2 miles deep.
Situated less than 100 yards off the shoreline, the canyon provides a climatic pathway that connects the deep sea to the wine growing regions of Monterey.
