"Carpe Vinum--Seize The Wine" in Carmel Valley Village, CA

Real Estate Broker/Owner CA#01772851 HI#RB21268

This past weekend, I spent both Saturday and Sunday walking all over Carmel Valley Village. On Saturday, I went from one end of the village to the other, checking out what businesses had opened or closed during the past few months. As you can imagine, there were some changes but not as many as one might think. In fact, there are some super additions  when shopping like the RED PEAR and K&CO, THE SHOP AROUND THE CORNER. Lots of great items for the home.

Georis Wine Tasting Carmel Valley Village

With restaurants, ROUX is my current favorite, had a meal there both Saturday and Sunday. Excellent choices for a smaller eater like myself. GEORIS moved across the street in a much better and larger location. Both are on Pilot street. Both places are great to hang out in their courtyard.

Wine tasting, of course, is excellent all over Carmel Valley Village. The new ones including BIG SUR VINEYARDS, BUNTER SPRING WINERY and JARMAN TASTING LOUNGE AT WILLS FARGO. One change, CHATEAU SINNET has moved from Center Street to around the corner.

Art galleries are fabulous in Carmel Valley Village including PATRICIA QUALLS and ROLF LYGREN studios. New is EDGE right next to Cafe Rustica. Several galleries combine wine tasting and art such as LYONSHEAD GALLERY, JEAN DE LUZ,  and PARSONAGE ART & WINE. A combination of gift shop and art can be found at the new RED PEAR and GERRI'S KELP CREATIONS. Others not to be missed include MASAOKA DESIGN, PERIDOT and CARMEL VALLEY ART ASSOCIATION which represents dozens of local artists.

Carpe Vinum--Seize The Wine at Georis in Carmel Valley Village CA

"Carpe Vinum--seize the Wine!" is a slogan I can get behind especially in beautiful Carmel Valley Village.

Your photos remind me of Siena in Tuscany! You just can't beat those quaint shops! It looks so charming and I'll bet never boring!

I can't add anything better than Debe Maxwell has already said!

What fun Hella to check out the new places and do a little wine tasting. It's a great way to discover a new favorite to take home.

Debbie Reynolds - I'm into some great vinegars.  My favorite right now is blackberry vinegar. Super good over salads with few calories.
