Drink It Straight From The Barrel At Carruth Cellars’ Annual Barrel Party

That’s right. This event is your chance to taste wine from the barrel before it gets bottled – and it only happens once a year!

At their infamous Barrel Party in Solana Beach the last weekend of February, Carruth Cellars will be pulling down barrels of their favorite vintages and letting you taste the unfinished wine.

Barrel tasting is already a unique and fun wine tasting experience, but to top it off, there will be live music and Red Oven Pizza to make for an epic party!

This is the only time of year Carruth offers “futures,” and they’ll even be 20% off! “Futures” is a term for buying wine before it is bottled. If you purchase a future at the event, Carruth will contact you 18+ months later after the wine has been bottled and is ready for you to pick up!

Tickets ($32.50) include 10 barrel samples, a souvenir glass and exclusive access to futures! Get tix as soon as you can! One of the three sessions is already sold out.


  • Saturday, February 25th, 12-3 p.m. (sold out)
  • Sunday, February 26th, 12-3 p.m.
  • Sunday, February 26th, 4-7 p.m.
