“Solid Pinots”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2012 via mobile

Carr is located in an area that is more industrial within the city. They have great Pinots. Located in an unassuming warehouse there is not much to see but you can enjoy a tasting or glass of wine. The staff is really friendly.

“Good Reds”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2011

We liked this place. Did a wine tasting and found the reds to be pretty tasty. Really cute, quaint tasting room too. Parking right out front but limited spots -- seemed there were spots on the street though

“Ok stop on the urban wine trail”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2011

Have been to many wineries and tastings here in the US and abroad. Carr's wine is mediocre. Location is good in that you can hit Telegraph Brewery up afterwards since it is right next door. Interior decor is nothing much to look at, the education on their wines is virtually non-existent, paired with mediocre tasting of their summer flight for $10 made for a barely memorable visit.

“Don't Take This Seriously”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2011

While the place has the feel of authenticity it is a tourist trap by and large. The design is to attract youthful folks out to party. While some of the wines are competent the overall effort is less about wine and more about bucks.

“Great tasting room!”

A little off the beaten path, but worth it. Great staff, nice atmosphere and a fun place to hangout for awhile.
