    Background On Vendange Carmel Inn and Suites:
    Vendange Carmel Inn and Suites offers 18 recently-redecorated suites to welcome guests. Vendange has partnered with 13 local Monterey County wineries to create a unique guest experience celebrating the bounty of Monterey County's vineyards. Each winery sponsors one room or suite, providing its own creative touches. From the McIntyre Vineyards room with its impressive 100-year-old section of grapevine to J. Lohr's plush bathrobes, every winery's room offers a signature luxury experience.

    The cozy rooms have sleek, modern bathrooms finished with imported Spanish marble. Views of both the Inn's beautiful gardens and the Carmel skyline are plentiful. Sleeping areas are appointed with memory foam-top beds, deluxe linens, and high-definition flat screen televisions - not that you'll want to stay indoors. As second-generation Carmel hoteliers, brothers Jonathan and Brian Lee are eager to share their extensive knowledge of the beautiful Monterey Bay and spectacular Big Sur coastline.

    The separate Cottage Suite offers a generous 650 square feet of living space. With a California King bed, 50" high definition flat screen television, gas fireplace and kitchenette, it's the perfect place for a honeymoon or romantic weekend getaway.

    The Inn offers breakfast daily and wine tasting on the weekends. Wines that are typically available only in partner wineries' tasting rooms are also available to guests for purchase. Guests can relax with a glass of wine around the inviting firepit in the garden and enjoy live music.

    Did you know? Monterey County is the one of the largest wine growing and producing regions in California which is one of the reasons why it was named as one of 2013's "Top Ten Wine Travel Destinations" in the world by Wine Enthusiast Magazine.

    In Carmel-by-the-Sea alone, you can spend a weekend wine-tasting without ever getting in a vehicle! Downtown Carmel-by-the-Sea has become a bona fide wine tasting destination, with enough tasting rooms to keep visitors busy for a weekend and even more about to open. Or jump in the car and drive 11 miles out to Carmel Valley! While often lively, Carmel Valley's tasting rooms are not overly crowded and provide a warm, personal interaction with tasting hosts and winemakers.

    At Vendange Inn and Suites, the Lee family has hand selected a wide variety of Monterey County Wineries to decorate their wine themed rooms. The following wineries have crafted rooms and showcase wines at the Vendange Inn and Suites.

    Dawn's Dream
    J. Lohr
    Otter Cove
    Pierce Winery
    Twisted Roots
    Cima Collina
