Guests can participate in the annual crush, which is when ripened grapes are processed at the cellars to begin production. The experience includes tasting, touching, and learning about the creation of wine. Finish off your hands-on tour with a sampling of handcrafted wines created onsite. Crushing only takes place at Carruth Cellars in September and October.
At the helm of his urban winery in the heart of the Cedros Design District, winemaker Adam Carruth handcrafts award-winning wines, including the 2009 San Francisco Chronicle Best in Class Alexander Valley Cabernet, from grapes he fastidiously collects from all over California. His team handles the production of each varietal from crush to finish, aging juices in barrels that line the walls of the industrial-chic tasting room. The final products—which range from a crisp sauvignon blanc to a bordeaux-style Surfing Madonna—slosh into customized stemware for patrons’ enjoyment seven days a week. Also in the tasting room, guests can break into crunchy baguettes or nibble on cheese.
