This is a tasting room located in central historic Julian. It begins with the whimsical 'the witch is in/out', signs and follows the witch and cat theme through with a terrific array of 'witchy' paraphernalia on the walls and hung from the ceiling- who can miss the broom? The young man pouring was knowledgable and entertaining- my daughter and I... More

We happened upon the winery while stopping for lunch in Julian. We popped in and found a small tasting area and retail shop. We were warmly greeted by Dustin who after learning of our preference of reds adapted the tasting as such. Dustin did an admirable job of describing each and much to our surprise we found several that we... More

The lady that works there is very rude to people unless you are her drunk friend or a club member. The whole time she spent catering to her very drunk friend plying them with full glasses of wine and I watched them walk in and I watched them leave and they never paid a cent and they were given full...

It was only five dollars a person (without glass)-11 dollars with the glass for 5 or 6 tastings (I can't remember). The last one we got to pick which dessert wine we wanted to try. We enjoyed every single one we tried, which isn't always the cast in San Diego county. The quirky owners are friendly and fun to listen... More

I enjoyed the wines here and the staff were fun and welcoming. Decor could stand to be updated a bit.

I have to say... My wife and I love this place. It is cozy (small) but it works. There is plenty of bar space for 15-20 people. The Good Witch, Tammy, is a HOOT!! She is a very gracious hostess and makes everyone, whether a first-time visitor or club member, feel welcome. Oh, and the wine is pretty good too.... More

This is the second time we have visited Witch Creek tasting room at Julian. They have a Apple Cider wine that is AWESOME! It is soooo good. We also enjoyed the pomegranite wine (if you like a nice desert wine). It is right next door to the Gold Rush Hotel where we were staying so we bought a bottle and... More

This tasting room is a bit hard to find, even though it's on a main street. The sign is pretty faded and non-descript. The shop itself isn't anything special, though some of the pictures and signs are pretty interesting. The server is quite knowledgeable about the wines and the local area. The wines are very good, in some cases, and... More
