Exploring Carmel Valley Vineyards

While in Carmel for my cousin’s wedding last week, we took full advantage of our free time from wedding related events and went exploring Carmel Valley vineyards. Based on a recommendation from my cousin’s new bride, we started at Folktale Winery. I’m so happy we did because Folktale is completely adorable and feels like a little slice of the French countryside. We sat outside in the California sun and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves while wine tasting with my siblings.

Exploring Carmel Valley Vineyards

Last week, I shared what we did in Carmel as well as a bunch of recommendations for where to stay, eat, explore, and wine taste. When you think of California wines, I bet you immediately think of Napa but there’s actually so many more places around the Golden State that produce wine. One such area is Carmel Valley. Around 160 miles south of Napa, Carmel Valley is a wine center in its own right. Wine tasting is such a great activity to do while in Carmel because you can visit the vineyards in Carmel Valley and tasting rooms in Carmel-by-the-Sea. A few vineyards and tasting rooms to have on your radar for a trip to Carmel are Folktale Winery, Scheid VineyardGeoris WineryThe Cheese ShopTrioSilvestri VineyardGalante VineyardHahn WinesBlair WinesWrathManzoni.

Carmel Valley is quite warm in the summer so I wanted to wear something lightweight and easy breezy as I knew we’d be sitting outside soaking up some rays. Keeping with my recent patriotic palette of red, white, and blue (as seen here!), I slipped on this white smocked dress with navy and red embroidery for our day of exploring Carmel Valley Vineyards. I love that the sleeves kept me protected from too much sun exposure. I’m always an easy sell on anything smocked too as it doesn’t get cuter or more comfortable! Sail to Sable hit it out of the park with this dress!
