I LOVE this place. My fiance and I stopped here on the Winery Train Tour with San Diego Beer and Wine Tours, and it was awesome. I love the location (just a short walk from the Solana Beach train station and across from the Belly Up). The whole crew there was really fun, and they have cool events like movie... More

How often can you play at a winery! We have crushed grapes, helped bottle, and done almost anything you can do and be part of the wine making process. My wife and I are members, so we go a lot for our free tastings and their special events. Of course we have missed every movie night, but we will get... More

Loved the staff as they were very friendly and informative about the wine and things to do around the town. A little pricey as $10 per person for tasting which reminds me more of Napa, but they do give you a lot of tastings. Price of bottle to buy were also rather high, but we still had a great time...

My wife and I are members and we love this place. The wine is great and so is the staff. They are friendly and very helpful. Make sure to become a member and you get tasting for free. We try to get to Carruth once a week.

This is a hidden gem--doesn't look like a winery, right on the main street in Solano Beach. The tasting was reasonable--$10 and seems like we had 6 -7 tastes. All of the wines were quite good, even the whites.

Adam Carruth has done a tremendous job putting together one of the coolest local wine experiences! He has an uncanny ability to consistently deliver high quality wines that are just fun to drink. Nothing pretentious about this operation, and he welcomes a first-time novice just like he would a seasoned client. Do yourself a favor and get on his mailing... More

Had the pleasure of visiting Carruth Cellar's for Yelp's Red Tide Event. They're kind of hidden off of Cedros Ave, up a driveway. Go find them! They've got a cute little setup. On the right side of the business, is their tasting area, with barrels lining the walls. Then they've got a central open space, good for mingling. Upstairs in... More
