    First off, it is always nice to see an entrepreneur take on the risk and red tape of turning a passion into a working business, so kudos to Adam for making that vision happen. If you like supporting l...  more »

    I was very surprised by the quality of these wines. I've been collecting Napa, French, German and Italian wines for the past 20 yrs and plan on adding Carruth to my cellar. They are sourcing quality fruit and making ripe, rich well balanced wines in 2-3 years that are ready to drink now. Silky smooth tannin's in all we tasted. The Barbera, Syrah, and Petite Sirah were a great surprise. The whites, 1 rose were refreshing, summer, and tropical fruit driven flavors but not gimmicky. Try the 2 ports if you are in need of further convincing. This little garage knows how to make really good wines 1/2 mile from lands end.

    Wow. This place is amazing. First of all, they have a monthly membership subscription for a ridiculously reasonable price where you get 1 free bottle of wine per month plus 2 glasses of wine whenever you want each and every month. In fact, the 2nd glass of wine can be for a friend or your loved one. So basically, you and your partner can come here everyday and each get 1 free glass of wine. I know. It sounds too good to believe. That's why this place deserves 5 stars! The wine itself is actually pretty tasty. They have several different types of wines, which make for a great wine tasting experience. They have vintage reserves too if you want to drink something special. They also offer a cheese board with crackers, which pairs perfectly with the wine. The location is great, 1 block from Highway 101 and a few blocks away from Fletcher's Cove Beach Park - Solana Beach's nicest beach. Eateries, boutique shops, and other restaurants are in the immediate area, walking distance from the winery, to enjoy with your friends, family, and/or partner. The inside of the winery is spacious and comfortable (see my picture). The people are always so nice. Maybe it's the wine. But they are always so social, sweet, and talkative. Everyone I've been, I always meet someone new and have a fantastic conversation with them. The crowd is as good as the service. The quality of the service is on point - courteous and respectful. Sometimes they can get a bit busy and/or distracted talking to all the people at the bar. But if you make an effort to call them when you need them, they will definitely take care of you. Overall, a memorable and enjoyable experience awaits you at Carruth Cellars due to the awesome crowd, spacious interior, laid back atmosphere, relaxing ambiance, solid location, great service, and delicious wine.
