Classy Carmel by the Glass

This last Thursday evening at Devondorf Park was the Second Annual Carmel by the Glass. A very pleasant event, benefiting 
The Carmel Mission Foundation.

There are many good wine events. Some even benefit worthy charities, but very few manage to create the same feel of community style fun that this party in the park managed to achieve. There we were, on an overcast, mild Thursday evening watching Rich Pepe welcoming guests to this event that has his hand all over it. Rich should be proud of his staff, of the event, and how it all went down.

Having prepurchased their tickets for a scant $30, the guests were there ready to enjoy at 5 sharp and the influx built steadily until about 7pm when the place was packed with happy party goers. With a great band and various singers entertaining, local fashion flair provided by Maddox Haberdasher,a Red Carpet Photo Op, the wonderful wines and some amazing small bites this was an evening to be remembered.

Wineries and Tasting Rooms: Galante, Caracioli, Scheid, Manzoni, Figge, Vino Napoli, Blair, Shale Canyon, De Tierra, Trio Carmel, Silvestri and Wrath were all pouring. Small bites provided by; Vesuvio, Little Napoli, Yafa, Basil, La Balena, Andre's Bouchee, Garden Cafe, Cypress Inn, Christophers, Pastries + Petals and the Carmel Bakery.

Looking down the road, there is another event at the Devondorf Park later this year, Carmel by the Glass in December. It will probably be a little cooler which means you can wear that new coat you want for Christmas.
Be there, we will!

Happy Tasting Adventures,


Kiwi & Koala
