Carmel Mission Classic 2016


A ONE OF A KIND EVENT combining the passion for fine automobiles with the Faith and the Palate.  Enjoy wine tasting by some of Monterey County's finest vineyards, a self-guided tour, and beautiful live harp music in the background as you stroll through the grounds of the crown jewel of the Monterey Peninsula, the historic Carmel Mission.  A no-host gourmet food bar will also be available by a local chef.  All net proceeds go to the charities of the Knights of Columbus and Carmel Mission!
