Very fun stop! Did a couple of wine flights and thought the wine was very good. Played lawn chess and listened to some music. Definitely recommend!

You can get a wine tasting of the different wines, and then take a self guided tour or just sit, relax and enjoy of the good wine and company!!!

I'm so glad you enjoyed your visit. The self-guided tour has been a wonderful addition, as it allows people to tour whenever we are open, instead of only at certain times. We enjoy relaxing on the covered front porch with a glass of wine ourselves!

I love Carlos Creek wine! Specifically, White Marquette but they no longer make! :( the tour is fun and informative, and also inexpensive! Do yourself a favor and experience the wine tasting. While visiting last, there was a wedding outside and it looked beautiful!

Yes, pets are welcome on our grounds and patios, as long as they are well-behaved and on a leash and owners pick up after them. They are not allowed inside the tasting room.
