Came in with my father and husband, paid $7 for 5 tastings. It says winery but this is only a tasting room, a small one at that. The wine was a huge let down, didn't like any of them. Some were just like syrup. The staff was not very informative of their products and didn't really talk to us. They... More

Stopped in for a wine tasting on our trip. The staff was very friendly and helpful in recommending local places. The reds were quite good and we took home a bottle of a Spanish red for the holidays. Very popular that night and it was clear why.

Wow - what a surprise this place was! In the middle of Carlsbad, but wine-making on premises. Barrels of wine in the back of the tasting room. Really nice reds; we tried them all. Bought their meritage to drink with dinner. Megan was fun & knowledgeable - plus she offered us some great pumpkin cheese torte that went very well... More

Their on-site wine maker is amazing. To those who say that it is not a winery, making excellent wine makes a winery, not growing the grapes. They purchase grapes from a variety of locations and Witch Creek does an amazing job at taking those grapes and producing red wines that are reasonably priced and are great tasting. What more could... More

Went to this "winery" in Carlsbad, it is really not a winery with land but they do have the products and are mixing the barrels in the back. Not a problem since they have very reasonable taste testing at $ 7 per person, and we had a two for one coupon. Server was very friendly, and we actually stayed and... More

This is the place to go for the best wines in the State of CA! Better than Napa and Paso Robles. Dave and Rich are master wine makers and the wines are Primo!!!

We stopped in here while we were walking around exploring the Village. We did the tasting. They have some really good wine and it's not expensive. The Moscato was really excellent. It was kind of a fun detour to just walking around the Village. It is not really a winery, just a warehouse and tasting room.

For a couple of months, being a resident of Carlsbad and wanting to support local businesses, we joined their wine club, which includes that you, as part of the membership dues, two bottles of wine a month, that are chosen by the winery. Not only are Witch Creek wines overpriced for the quality, but the wines that are chosen by... More

This is simply a small tasting room in downtown Carlsbad. Nothing special in ambiance or wine! San Diego does have some beautiful wineries--but they are in Temecula, an hour away from Carlsbad. You would be better off walking toward the center of town and stopping at any one of the local restaurants and having a nice glass of wine!

We had the woman who didn't know a lot about the wines. I kept listening to the younger woman as she seemed to know more about the wines and how long they lasted. Our wines were young and bought a few to put into my cellar and enjoy in a few years.
