Enjoy wine country living in our vineyard and experience the wine country lifestyle at it's source! World class vineyards and wineries, Bernardus, Julien, Heller Estate, Galante Family Winery and Georis, surround our Carmel Valley Vineyard. We are a licensed winery and produce Rombi, Carmel Valley Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot both estate grown. Our first release was the 2006 vintage which is sold privately and thru selected fine restaurants. The 2006 vintage produced less than 100 cases. The 2008 release is almost gone. The 2009's will be released in August 2013. Savor wine grown and produced on site and barrel taste future vintages!
The property is spectacular and the second level cottage sits atop the winery with views of our Carmel Valley Vineyard. The private deck offers stunning views of Julian Vineyards, Heller Estate and the Ventana Wilderness on the horizon.
The charming wood cottage is 800 square feet and features a private deck off the bedroom and living room, quality bed linens, a full kitchen with everything a gourmet chef will need, satellite TV, full movie and book library, high speed internet and your own washer and dryer. The decor highlights artwork by local artists. The living room features cozy comfortable furniture to relax in and enjoy the ambience. You will also have the use of the beautiful swimming pool (heated May through September), which over looks the views of the local vineyards. There is a cat Peanut on the property. He loves people but does not see many of them and he will leave you alone. He is an outdoor cat. We also have two vineyard puppies Bella and Ali.
The estate sits on its own ridge with fabulous views. The down side is it has very steep side hills and is not child friendly. We are sorry but this is an adult only property.
The cottage is peaceful, cozy and lets you experience living in the country on a working vineyard. It is close to great restaurants, shopping, golf and wine tasting. We are 45 minutes from the Monterey Peninsula Airport and we are 25 minutes to the Carmel Valley Village. All guests receive complimentary wine tasting at Rombi Wines new tasting room in the Carmel Valley Village. Located at one Center Street just off Carmel Valley Road.

About the owner: Salvatore Rombi viticulturist, winemaker and Kathy Baker (official taster) were both born and raised on the Monterey Peninsula and Carmel Valley. We know the area intimately and enjoy sharing it and love all it has to offer. We began the process of developing the vineyard in 1994. The Winery was completed in 2007 and the first commercial release of the Rombi Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot will be the 2006 vintage. The process has been challenging, exciting and rewarding. It is wonderful to see it come to life. Sal owns Carmel Valley Realty Company and has been in the real estate business since 1972. Kathy is an executive with a radio broadcast group in California. We have rented houses for years in Italy and France and understand the amenities and accruements we enjoy and will respect guest's privacy. The cottage is yours during your stay.
Why the Owner Chose Carmel Valley: Unique wine country living but close enough to everything the Monterey Peninsula has to offer.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Walk in the vineyard, hiking and taste world class wine! Quiet peaceful setting with all the modern conveniences you will need.
