Red Wine

 

Cellar Door’s wine list features boutique wineries from regions throughout California’s Central Coast, Central and Northern Valleys. Guests have an opportunity to try new wines and learn about the diverse terroir of California’s expansive wine country. All wines are offered by the 1/2 glass, glass or bottle, and featured flights are suggested. A flight is a great way to sample a small selection of a few wines for the purpose of sampling and comparing. Our flights include three wines with 2 oz pours.

Due to the nature of the wine list at Cellar Door, the list changes frequently (2-3 times a month). Be sure to visit often to keep up!

Cellar Door also offers ‘Meet the Winemaker’ events, with various wineries coming out to share information, answer questions and offer tastes. Check our events page for upcoming winemaker visits and other special happenings at the Door!
