I googled vineyards near Carlsbad, CA, randomly picked up and asked which tour company to go with on our visit to the area. It was San Diego Beer and Wine Tours, hands down, and I'm so glad! Marti was our guide and she is a treasure. She knows everything about not only wine, but food pairings and history too! We so enjoyed ourselves and would recommend it to anyone. The "light" lunch was a fabulous Italian spread that was to die for. Do it!
