Itching to escape the heat and head north to wine country? On Saturday afternoon Monterey Wine Country celebrates the festival’s 20th anniversary in Carmel. Tickets are $35 in advance, $45 at the door on the day of the event. And get this, designated drivers pay just $15, presumably because they will not be imbibing — or at least as much

What’s happening? Tastings of Monterey wines, food from local restaurants, music from the Red Beans & Rice jazz band — and of course, an auction.

The event is held at the Barnyard Shopping Village in Carmel from 1 to 4 p.m. Driving north on the 1, you can’t miss it.

Additional details are available online or by calling (831) 375-9400. To plan your trip, check out the free smartphone app.
