I enjoy a good family story, and The Double L Estate Vineyard—for Double luck—is named after the Morgans' twin daughters. Wines are produced from the 50 acre vineyard, with over half its fruit being Pinot Noir. Morgan wines also source from other Monterey County growers.
There is a rich history of relationships between vintners and farmers in Carmel and the Salinas Valley. This is foundational for Morgan sourcing the fine grapes used in crafting additional varietals of wine, such as: Albarino, Syrah, Riesling, Grenache, and Tempranillo.
You can taste the quality and levels of flavor in Morgan wines. All Double L wines are organically farmed, and most of Morgan wines are vineyard designated.
Owners, Dan and Donna Lee, have been making Santa Lucia Highlands wines for 35 years. The grapes are grown along the Salinas Valley, nestled between the Santa Lucia Range and the Gabilan Range. This area is known for its high quality Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
Morgan Winery offers classic style wines from the Monterey County. Their tasting room is celebrating its tenth year at the Crossroads.
Also at the Crossroads is McIntyre Tasting Studio mcintyre-tasting-studio-carmel-viticulture-in-the-santa-lucia-highlands.html
Best to you and your Carmel wine jaunt,
