Szalay Winery

36023 Cachagua Road
Carmel Valley, CA 93924


We are one of the most recent boutique  wineries in  the Santa Lucia Mountain  range of Carmel Valley. In the summer of 2003 Jozsef and Bette Kovacs purchased 13 acres of land.  With sons Jacob and Jesse, we began planting and building our winery.  Located sixteen miles into the valley from the Big Sur coastline, we experience hot summer days with ocean influenced breezes. Bud break on average is two weeks earlier than most California growing regions, giving us a longer growing season. At 1100 foot elevation,the south facing slope , with its sandy loam soil and sandstone base, is prime for growing exceptional  reds.
