This winery is all about their Burgundian pinot. All of them were good so make sure you choose those in your tasting. N Knowledgeable staff and friendly. One of the two tasting rooms I recommend in Carmel Valley

If you only had one tasting room to go to, this would be it, although we'd recommend Talbott, also. The best wines we tasted the whole trip, great Chard and Pinot. Small garden patio to have a picnic with your wine if you so desire. Service was personal and exceptionally helpful. No fee if you buy wine.

We visited the tasting room in Carmel. Boekenoogen, which we barely can spell and only after the visit can pronounce, was recommended by Talbott Vineyards. A shoutout of thanks to Talbott because Boekenoogen was worth the stop! The tasting room is welcoming and set in an exceedingly pleasant environment. Good feeling from the start. The people were friendly and willing... More

Great Pinots - very full without being overly fruity. Friendly and wine-knowledgeable staff. Reasonable tasting fee. At the east end of Carmel Village located approximately 12 miles / 15 minutes east of the intersection of Hwy 1 and Carmel Valley Road.

How can you not visit a winery with the name Boekenoogen! The white wine has a distinctive flavor, refreshing and unique. The staff is friendly. Try the Syrah, it is quite nice too. Very down-to-earth staff that treated us really nice. Mrs. Boekenoogen, thank you for a lovely experience.

We enjoyed tasting a variety of whites and reds at the tasting room of this family owned winery. The vineyards are in the Santa Lucia Highlands and the tasting room in the Carmel Valley. Very nice Viognier, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Syrah. Being able to discuss how the fields are irrigated and managed and how the varieties were selected at... More

We did a tasting here one Sunday with a group of friends. We were able to sit on the patio and enjoy our tasting. We packed a picnic and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The wine was superb as was the service. The man who poured our tasting was very informative about the wines. This has been one of our favorite... More

Carmel Valley is predominantly Burgundian so when I saw the Viognier on the tasting list, I was excited to try. Wanting to skip the Chardonnays, I asked to taste the Viognier, but the pourer recommended tasting it last because it is their "biggest" wine (?) I could maybe understand how a Viognier could stand up to a light Pinot Noir,... More
