As a wine blogger, I was extremely disappointed with Curtis Winery. Granted it was late in the day, but the experience was inexcusable. A fellow winery recommended Curtis as a nice friendly place to visit, however, our experience was less than friendly, or nice. Granted, we arrived at 4:40 p.m. to wine taste--the winery was open until 5 p.m. We were briskly rushed to the wine bar and the host informed us that he "had a life" and that we would have to move our tasting along quickly. Did I mention that it was a 3-day holiday weekend? Reluctantly, we paid for our speed wine tasting which was a mistake. Not to say that the Rhone wine blends were not good, but the rushed, rude service left a bad taste in our mouths. Billy, the host, seemed very knowledgeable, but standoffish. The pouring was skimpy and the descriptions were curt. I was appalled when two military guys from San Diego (our hometown) arrived at 4:46 p.m. and were rudely turned away. Give me a break Billy! It was Memorial Day for goodness sakes--these guys represented our country! What the heck was so important for you to do at the stroke of 5:00???? Not only were the military guys turned away, but so was another group of six women at 4:47 p.m. Maybe Curtis Winery doesn't need the business, but as a wine blogger, I didn't want to be given the business either.
