I spent the rest of the afternoon on a stroll through downtown, with visits to galleries, shops and a few more tasting rooms, most notably Galante, Dawn’s Dream and Manzoni. The sky was a deep blue and the temperature didn’t stray from the 70s. Heaven.
My Carmel visit flew by in a flash. I’m thrilled I’ll be returning in a few short weeks. My heartfelt thanks to such gracious hosts.
