To our valued members:

After five amazing years in Little Italy, our beloved Wine Garden will pour its final flight on Sunday, June 12th. Our Owner and Winemaker, Adam Carruth, has spent the better part of this year in negotiations with our landlord in hopes of continuing the existing lease, but ultimately an agreement did not come to fruition.

In Spring 2021, we were approached with the opportunity to open our fifth tasting room in the historic ARTS DISTRICT in Liberty Station. Fortuitously, with the new 10,000 square-foot Wine Garden nearing completion just three miles away, Little Italy operations will move to the new location – opening first to our Wine Club members on June 15th.

We’ve had a great five years in Little Italy, and we are so grateful to the amazing, supportive community we’ve built here. While it’s a sad time, it’s also an exciting time as we look to the future in Liberty Station. All current Little Italy members, and anyone who signs up in Little Italy before June 12th, will be grandfathered into our OG membership were you can receive a DAILY complimentary glass of wine or tasting flight for you & a guest, in addition to all the other benefits!* Stop by our Little Italy Tasting Room or click here to sign up.

The expansive new Wine Garden location, located along the North Promenade, near Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens and Con Pane Rustic Breads & Café, will serve our award-winning, bold California-style wines by the flight, glass, and bottle. We are excited to open an artisanal cheese counter as well as a marketplace with a curated assortment of gourmet specialty pantry goods, from olive oils and tapenades to preserves and salami. Plus, we will be enhancing our menu to include shareable appetizers and desserts, in addition to our signature housemade paninis, salads, and build-your-own cheese and charcuterie boards. Two large patios will be enclosed by both planted and container trees, and in keeping with the Wine Garden’s location in the ARTS DISTRICT, our live music program will be expanded and there are plans for partnerships with local artists and makers.

We will be celebrating our last weekend of operations with a festive celebration June 10th – 12th. More details to come soon! We look forward to seeing you for one more glass of wine in Little Italy before our move to Liberty Station in June!

With Love & Gratitude,

Adam Carruth & the whole Carruth Cellars team
