An afternoon at Sycamore Cellars

Being at the tail end of a trail means you probably don't see as many people as those attractions nearer the beginning. But that does not mean the experience you offer is any less worthy of a visitors time. In fact, we think for those who have not made the effort to get to the end of the River Road Wine Trail, you are truly missing out! Missing out on what you ask? On experiencing Sycamore Cellars...

While meeting some friends there not to long ago we got to experience first hand the hospitality of the nice people at Sycamore Cellars. The southernmost tasting room at the end of the River Road Wine Trail. On a beautiful Saturday afternoon (they are only open weekends) we drove about 40 minutes south on the river Road Wine Trail to meet up, and to make our first visit to Sycamore Cellars.

The entry is marked by a wagon of wine barrels and as such is hard to miss although you may worry for a while as it is a fair way out. The tasting room is small and cozy, although plenty of room for a dozen of your closest friends. Then there is a very nice picnic / tasting area just outside the tasting room. With a number of tables spread out over a good size area there is plenty of room for quite a few people. Sitting outside under the large trees on a nice day is a wonderful experience. The beauty of the area and the tranquility of the surroundings make for a wonderfully relaxing experience. The wine list is quite diverse and the vines are all estate, and located in the upper Arroyo Seco Appellation in Monterey County. They are quick to mention that all 60 acres of vineyards are farmed using sustainable practices by four generations of family.

With some lovely wines and a beautiful setting to sit and enjoy them, we look forward to going back because it was 'good', and spending time and discovering more about the people and the place that is, Sycamore Cellars.

Happy Tasting Adventures,

Kiwi & Koala
