I visited the winery for my brother's wedding and the setting was wonderful. The wines were great and the reception hall was beautiful! My children even had fun chasing frogs in the pond and playing life size chess!

My fiancee and I arrived at the winery around 1230 on a Saturday. Very quiet when we arrived. The tasting room is gorgeous and the tasting bar can comfortably hold a large amount of people. The woman helping us was friendly and willing to grab someone to help answer my questions, as she was a newer staff member. I tried... More

We had a group of 35. We enjoyed cheese and crackers with our wine tastes. The bar tenders were friendly and our tasting fun. The tour guide was very knowledgeable. This was an excellent experience.

I have been to Carlos Creek Winery twice now and both times was great. The first time we went for their wine tasting. Were given several to sample and it was so hard deciding which ones were the favorites. Their raspberry, peach and cranberry wines are delicious! Actually, I don't think I sampled a bad one! The servers are friendly... More

What a great time we had at the grape stomp this year. We attended all three days. Friday it was cold . Just wore a warm winter coat. Some of the advantages were the crowds weren't as big so was able to look at all the vendors, watch the grape stomp heats , listen to all the music and watch... More

My husband and I drove here for the afternoon on our way home from Lake Carlos State Park. We both had a panini from the cafe and did a wine tasting afterwards. The food was delicious, and for me, was more than enough to fill me up. I had the Mediterranean panini and my husband had a chicken one. The... More

Wonderful place to relax and enjoy different types of wine. Then, pick out what you like and buy a few bottles.

I go to the Grape Stomp/Harvest Festival annually and have a wonderful time. I have also volunteered to help during the harvest. It's a wonderful opportunity to learn about a variety of grapes and the process/art and craft of wine making. This is a beautiful getaway that whisks you away to wineries far off. I especially enjoy the fruit wines,... More

I don't know where to begin. We first visited the winery about a year ago, when visiting to see if we would like to book out wedding there. Michelle, who coordinates weddings was wonderful. We booked with them, and have been impressed since. My bachelorette party visited for a wine tasting and food in the tasting room in June. Te... More

Tamara B, Owner at Carlos Creek Winery, responded to this review

Thank you so much for your kind words. I'm so glad your experiences with Carlos Creek have been so positive - except for the tour. You have my sincere apologies for that. Likely, the tour at 1:00 was full (we can only fit 40 in our production space) but it sounds like we failed to make that clear or offer... More
