According to an article in a travel magazine, JFK was once turned away by Nepenthe for being barefoot so I made sure that I had my Reefs on before I went in. This restaurant is a famous stopping point on California Highway One. You can find it just south of Big Sur State Park and a little north of Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park
I was making an “effort” not to drink wine until I got to Napa but I failed. The bartender talked me in to trying Lucia, a local wine that you can only get at Nepenthe. I had the Pinot Noir which is made from grapes grown at the Lucia Vineyards just over the mountains in Big Sur. I had miles of Highway One left to drive but I felt stuck in this spot…….too amazing to leave.
