Wine Tasting in Carlsbad (Witch Creek Winery)
While on a recent trip to Carlsbad we ran across this tiny little tasting room called Witch Creek Winery.
Being the "wine connoisseurs" that we are we had to stop and check it out!!
Upon entering the building we were not too impressed with the store / tasting room but thought what the heck for $5 bucks we would try the wine tasting featuring 6 wines. What a deal right!
Can you say ...Reds ...Reds and more Reds.....It was like a Russian invasion there were so many red wines to taste.....And us being White wine lovers the only whites in sight were of the dessert variety.
The staff seemed busy so other than asking "What did you have last" and pointing to the list of what you were trying next there wasn't much explanation or conversation about the wines.
The Muscato was only one of two white wines that we were given the opportunity to try. We both found this wine to be a little too sweet for our taste but If you are a person who likes extra sweet wine than you would probably love this one! It would probably be good paired with a vanilla ice cream and fruit topping or even used as the base for a summer fruit Sangria. Not to mention is has a cute label!!
So all in all if you are a Red Wine lover than this might be a winery that you would like to check out. As for us we did not find enough variety to peek our interest or keep us coming back for more ...
Check back with us soon as we will give you some tips on hosting your very own backyard movie wine night!!
