3rd segment of this weeks Show: Wine Travel: Monterey County Uncorks New Wine Murals to Draw Tourists on Hwy. 101 - Rhonda Motil
 
The Monterey County Vintners and Growers Association is hoping that eight new 12-foot-tall wine murals along Highway 101 will lure tourists to this wine-producing region of California. Monterey County boasts a whopping 40,000 acres of vineyards, but until now, travelers along the popular highway between Los Angeles and San Francisco saw little of this booming industry from the road. The murals span a 30- mile stretch along the highway, illustrating Monterey County's wine producing history, depicting key figures in the industry, and pointing out the 35 tasting rooms in the area. Rhonda Motil is Executive Director of the Monterey County Vintners and Growers Association.

Join the winegrowers and vintners of the Santa Lucia Highlands for this fifth annual, exclusive tasting.

Sit back, enjoy the beautiful vineyards scenery along River Road and leave the driving to the professionals! Dave Muret is Exec. Dir. of the Santa Lucia Highlands Wine Artisans.
