Tasting Room Details

The charming Blair Estate Tasting Room is situated on the Lower Level of the Carmel Plaza in downtown Carmel-By-The-Sea. It is a large space that can accommodate larger groups and is right in the heart of the shopping / restaurant district and a must-stop on the Carmel Wine Walk. Guests will often find Jeffrey behind the tasting bar sharing his award-winning releases as he describes all the repurposed materials from his family history used to create the tasting room.

Pinot Noir is very particular. There are few places on earth where climate and soils combine to provide just the right conditions for this noble grape. The cool North East Corner of the Arroyo Seco AVA in Monterey County is one of those sites. For five generations, our family has lived and farmed here. We are proud to share these limited release wines from our home with you…

Our Website

Delfina’s Vineyard is the very heart and soul of the Blair Estates’ label. Named after our matriarch and beloved grandmother, the vineyard sits on the very first property purchased by our family’s grandparents in the 1920s. Delfina’s house still holds pride of place on the estate, where she would daily cook for the family and ranch workers. She inspired generations of our family; her passion for the land is the core value for our wines.

Beginning in 2007, Delfina’s grandson Jeffrey Blair began planting Pinot Noir on the family’s old ranch. Jeffrey knew the potential for winegrowing in the area, given the success of vineyard estates in the Arroyo Seco and neighboring Santa Lucia Highlands’ appellations.

The goal? To grow and produce the ultimate statement Pinot Noir; a Pinot Noir focused on this one piece of land, one piece of family history. Nothing less will suffice to honor Delfina’s memory. Today, Delfina’s Vineyard and the Blair Estate is planted to just over eight acres of Pinot Noir, almost two acres of Chardonnay, and one block of Muscat. The “micro” nature of the project allows complete and total quality control from the vineyard to the bottling line – for truly artisan, limited releases of Blair Pinot Noir
