We love to go wine tasting, obviously. This site alone has hundreds of proof points for that. Most of our tasting experiences are in Northern California, but we occasionally venture further afield. In this case, we drove the barren scenery of I-5 all the way to Carlsbad. Once there, of course, we went wine tasting!

Sun, sand and… wine, of course! The perfect vacation includes all three elements. A recent trip to Carlsbad, California, brought everything together, including the happy surprise of a downtown winery/tasting room. Our visit to the Witch Creek Winery was exceptional!
