Carter Estate Tasting Room
Great wines! Service was excellent. Their food selections could have been better for the prices.
Everything is always nice at Carter Estate. The tasting room is always cool when it’s 100+ outside. And we seem to run into our favorite employee Juan most visits. He treats people especially good. I commend an establishment that has people working for them that treat you special each visit. We’ll be back as often as possible to enjoy a very relaxing experience.
It was hreay
We had a reservation for wine tasting and we were the only patrons in there on a Thursday afternoon. Another couple came in a little bit later but it was very quiet. The atmosphere was nice and upscale and we liked every wine we tried. Our pourer Gabe was awesome and so entertaining. He is a level 1 sommelier and so knowledgeable! We will go back again if he’s working!
Sad because I wanted to taste the olive oil no crackers
It was our first time in Temecula for our anniversary (from WA). We are spoiled in WA with the wine tasting experience. The wine tasting here was ok. Nobody bothers to tell you anything about the winery, the wines etc., they pour and leave. Our server was anxious for closing hour and getting us out ASAP. The wine itself was ok. We found 1-2 we liked and the rest were either too sweet or not very smooth. It’s a gorgeous winery and we enjoyed staying there, walking around, and going to the pool, but probably won’t be buying any wine from here anytime soon.
A very beautiful location. Patio seating is a very intimate and quiet setting with views of the vineyard. Only packaged food items however what they did offer was tasty.
Service was great! However, the value for our money just wasn’t there.
Excellent afternoon wine tasting with my mom and best friend.
Nice quite atmosphere. A little pricy. Service was good.
Excellent experience as always
I am a member here and always enjoy tasting their wine. Juan is our favorite server!
It was so calm and beautiful to sit outside for a wine tasting. Not busy if you pick later times
This is our first time visiting Temecula winery and we randomly selected this place. We were very lucky that our first select was here because everything was great. We enjoyed very calm atmosphere and great taste wines, also basil olive oil was great taste. We wanted to come back this winery again.
This is my fave tasting room! I love Carter Estates. I have even stayed at the hotel. I wish I could stay there more often but the 2/3 night minimum restricts my time. BUT wine was great, place is clean, quiet and service is amazing! LOVE the olive oils as well!
The professional service and wine samples were excellant. It was the best of all the venues we visited on our trip. The location on the patio had beautiful views of the vineyards, plus pots of flowers. The inside setting was quite classy and inviting looking.
This a hidden gem away from the crowds and noise. We took our daughter to celebrate her birthday and our server Victoria made it a wonderful experience. The wines are delicious and they have the best sparkling wines in Temecula. We will be returning again.
Very nice tasting room with good wine selections. Juan provided great service and went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable!
A beautiful winery with a lovely shady patio out of the sun and heat with a great view. Our server was knowledgeable and very friendly. We all got a wine tasting and it was served on a very cool tiered rack that held all six glasses. Pours were generous and we enjoyed all the wines.
Juan is fabulous!!
We really enjoy out time at Carter - quiet and wine is so good
Great visit. Superb wines.
Tasting was fun and Juan was very knowledgeable and helpful
Cannot wait to return
I am a member here. I love Carter wines .. especially their bubbly. Their server was excellent. I did not have on my glasses so I can't tell you his name but he remembered me and I have had him before. My only issue is that they added a $10 gratuity when there was only two of us. We were planning on leaving a $20 tip anyway so we left only $10. I don't like an added gratuity unless its a big party. And I think this is fairly new; I did not notice any such charge when I was there in February.
Staff is very helpful and knowledgeable. Can’t wait to go back
We did a tasting at 1 pm on a Monday. While the wines were great, it was disappointing that they didn’t have any food options, not even the charcuterie board that was listed in their website. We had planned on having that for lunch while we did our wine tasting. They shouldn’t list it if they only offer it on weekends, which is what our server said. Wine was excellent, though!
Excellent service. Delicious wine.
Extremely limited food options (crackers for oil tasting?! Nor French stick; no charcuterie...) on a Thursday, just doesn’t feel set up for the season. Only one server, very nice man but trying to do it all...overall the tasting room needs improvement for us to ever return
The ambiance was beautiful. We were sat at the very end of the building and were hit by a ton of wind. When we asked to have the heaters turned on we were informed they do not work. They quickly sat us inside stating that table is always the coldest. No big deal, just don't forget your jacket! There is no food to cleanse the palate between wines, so that was a huge bummer. All things considered, the experience was okay.
Nice place to enjoy the weather and the scenery.
Celebrating my husband’s birthday- lovely experience- Juan was a perfect server - loved the wines!
This was a wine tasting for four! Very friendly & Joey did a great job as host & server. We bought snacks to go & they were tasty but over priced.
First impression from Hostess was not great as she had a very poor attitude but after sitting down and having Juan take care of us...............WOW! from only wanting a quick tasting to after dealing with him, did two tastings, food, purchased items from store and two bottles of wine! Juan is outstanding
From the moment we arrived the service was impeccable! Juan was very knowledgeable about the history of the winery, the wines and vineyards. I would highly recommend a visit.
I had a great time with my friends for my birthday
Had the absolute best time! The room and property is beautiful.
Came wine tasting (covid edition) for my birthday weekend. Staff was pleasant and wine was good. Only negative is the charcuterie board was not worth the $25 spent on it. Other than that wonderful experience.
We did not have food at the tasting room, not sure any was available...but in order to continue this review I had to put something. $25 tasting fee per person seemed a little high for the quality of the wine they had available. Overall, the experience and customer service was good.
Wines were delicious and Juan was the best waiter!!!
First time at Carter's and would come again and suggested it to others.
Thank you for complying with the Covid 19 social distancing rules. I felt safe at your establishment.
