Cheers to Stave Wine Cellar at Spanish Bay, the New Toast of Pebble Beach

In case you’re looking for yet another extraordinary way to wine on the beautiful Monterey Bay in Northern California, you’re in luck. Stave Wine Cellar has just opened its doors on the entrance courtyard of The Inn at Spanish Bay, smack dab on the scenic Pebble Beach coast.

Devoted to nothing but vino, Stave Wine Cellar is an intimate social lounge and wine shop designed for the enjoyment of a wide selection of varietals, hard-to-find bottles, and adventurous, off-the-beaten-path “Geek of the Week” gems discovered by the staff sommeliers.  

A long bar, luxurious leather club chairs, tables for 1 or 10, and a romantic stone fireplace create a cozy setting, as does the warmth of the knowledgeable staff who guide guests through tastings on request. Nearly 30 wines are available by the glass, bottle or “taste,” plus eight craft beers by the glass, and a menu of nibbles including Puglia olives, country pate, truffled Marcona almonds, and an ever-changing artisan cheese and charcuterie platter. (Cowgirl Creamery Pierce Point for me, please, paired with a Fontsainte Rose.)
