“Excellent wine with advice from family members”
Reviewed 12 November 2011

We had several wine tastings at various places, but Boekenoogen was much our favourite. It was a much more personal experience than the others, with family members who own and run the vineyard on hand to guide you through the various wines and grapes.

“Hard to say, easy to love”
Reviewed 31 October 2011

We visited Boekenoogen on a tip from strangers we'd chatted with over a wine tasting in Amador County. When they found out we were headed toward the Monterey Peninsula, they said, "Don't miss this one!" and spelled out the name so we would be sure to find it. We were welcomed by Candace and John onto the warmly inviting tasting room in the crossroads of Carmel Valley's village. They knew so much about the wines we were tasting, about their vineyard and vinification practices, and about wines in general that there wasn't a question that went unanswered. Being from Oregon's pinot noir country and fans of Burgundy's great pinots, we were unprepared to be so impressed by the depth, fruit, and balance of the pinot noirs they are producing nearby, and their Santa Lucia Highlands syrah was a dead ringer for the wines of Vacqueyras that we seek out when we want a heavier red. Although we came in expecting to pay the nominal $5 tasting fee and leave empty handed, our cellar now has half a case of Carmel wines that we will mete out for very special occasions over the next ten years.

“This tasting room is not to be missed!”
Reviewed 5 March 2010

Carmel Valley resident who takes our tasting rooms for granted... stopped by for a bottle and was very pleasantly surprised at the quality of these wines. Holly was most informative and pleasant...You will enjoy her and her expertise. I will make sure I encourage all my friends and tourists to make time and treat themselves to wines that are worth it.

This newcommer is going places with their 2007 chardonnay with 94+ points. All the wines are fantastic. the outside patio with tables and chairs is a great place to sample wine, with your refill needs attended to by very attentive and knowledgable host Holly Boekenoogen.I highly reccommend this wine, and tasting room.NO SNOBINESS HERE!!!
