There is no better way to kick back after a day on the trails than sipping on a delicious glass of local wine while watching the sunset over the vineyards in Monterey County, CA.

Just a short drive from some of the best trails and rock climbing at Pinnacles National Park, Wrath Wines' Soledad winery is a great way to wine'd down after a day of adventure. 

What makes this grape growing region unique is the constant marine layer fog and wind stress out the grapes (that’s a good thing!) to the point of making beautiful, complex wines. After tasting a few wines over one of their exquisite charcuterie boards, grab a glass and wandered around the vineyards as the sun sinks beneath the hills. 

Pro tip: One of the benefits of stopping here on your way into the area is you can pick up some of their canned wine – canned because they love the outdoors and the benefit of great tasting wine that is also portable.

Note: Wrath Wines also has a tasting room located in downtown Carmel-by-the-Sea.
