Pebble Beach Stave Wine Cellar PicmonkeyA comfortable addition to Inn at Spanish Bay

TASTE News Service, August 25, 2015 – Pebble Beach Resorts has further expanded its offering for wine aficionados with the introduction of Stave Wine Cellar at Spanish Bay. The facility, which takes its name from a stave (one of the individual strips of wood that form the sides of a wine barrel), invites visitors to indulge in wines by the glass, small bites and a selection of hard-to-find bottles for purchase.

“When we were designing Stave Wine Cellar, our vision was for it to be a place that reflects the charm and casual character of The Inn at Spanish Bay, but with a contemporary style all its own,” said Wendy Heilmann, Director of Wine and Spirits for Pebble Beach Resorts. “Stave Wine Cellar is all about exploration and the experience of different varietals, and this is a place for anyone and everyone curious about the world of wine. We are excited to share the passion we have for wine with our visitors.”

Anchored by a double-sided stone fireplace that is the centerpiece to the room, the space is appointed with a cozy leather couch and chairs, dark wood tables, a communal high-top table and a wine bar.

In addition to more than 30 wines and eight craft beers by the glass, the room features more than 250 wines for purchase by the bottle. To expose visitors to new and unique tastes outside of Monterey County, wines by the glass include regional and international wines that hail from countries like Spain, France, Germany, Italy and Argentina, and California regions including Sonoma, Mendocino County, Santa Barbara and Santa Cruz. A menu of cheese and charcuterie plates to complement the varietals is offered and winemaker tastings, wine walks and monthly events are planned.
