9th Annual 2018 "Dan's Drive" Monterey Historics Fun Wine Run to Hahn Winery 8/23!!!

Sorry for the delay in starting this thread, but with 4.5 weeks away, should be plenty of time to join in and fill all of the spots for the drive.

I will be updating links shortly.

This is a fantastic event and it all starts Wednesday August 22nd.

Wednesday night, August 22nd, dinner. Location TBD. Please contact me directly,, if you'd like to join in.

This year, 2018, the drive will be Thursday, August 23rd. We will meet between 8:00/8:30AM, Safeway parking lot (same place each of the previous years - address below). The drive will be the same journey as each of the years, commencing at the lovely Hahn Winery. It is a spirited drive through the backcountry of Monterey (video clip link to follow), ending up at the picturesque Hahn Estates Winery. The roots of the Hahn Estates Winery date back to the Hahn family’s European heritage. It is a fantastic drive. There are cattle grates, rough patches, a few rocks or dirt clods, and no bathrooms along the drive.

I have worked with the wonderful folks at Hahn and have made some special arrangements to use the tasting room - parking lot - tables - etc. There are several picnic benches and such for all of us to use, but we will have to bring our own food & drinks. Everyone usually grabs lunch to take with us from the meeting spot, Safeway.

There is a $15 wine tasting fee should you choose to partake at Hahn.

Plan on being at Safeway early enough to chat, grab lunch, check out the great cars, as we will depart around 9:00/9:15. There is a gas station, coffee shop, and of course Safeway at the same shopping center, but I would strongly suggest filling up PRIOR to departure - not during. You won't catch up. (:
