Our Philosophy
(that sounds pretty serious...)

Have a blast! Our goal is to create an experience that involves learning a few things, trying a few things, and enjoying yourself whether you know all or nothing about wine. We're the first to admit...we sure don't know everything there is to know about wine... and we don't expect you to either. We think the most important thing is being able to enjoy it!

We're glad you stopped in and hope you'll find our place a fun and relaxing place to hang for a while. Corktree Cellars is located in the heart of downtown Carpinteria, California, a cozy little beachtown on the central coast. Whether your from here or just visiting, it's a pretty good bet that you will love our restaurant.

We didn't always want to open up a restaurant...
When the idea of Corktree came about, it stemmed from a desire to find a place that would be like going over to a friend's house. We wanted to create a casual and inviting atmosphere where people could get together, relax over a glass of wine, and share some great food. We were always looking for that perfect place to go. Somewhere casual, but nice. Good selection, but not overpriced. Comfortable atmosphere without being the neighborhood bar. Delicious food that could easily be shared with friends. We decided to take the bull by the horns and do it ourselves!

How Does It Work?
Try It! We serve 8 different flights of wine that change every month or so. The flights consist of three 3 oz pours of wine within a similar varietal category. By offering our flights we hope this will lead the way to your own exploration, finding out what you like best and learning about it...if you want. Or you can just drink it. And to make the experience ever finer, we also have extensive lunch, tapas and dinner menus.

What's the Place Like?
Our restaurant is casual and comfy, yet beautiful and classy. We have an awesome concrete bar with two flat screen tv's, a couch area to chill with your friends, or an outdoor patio to enjoy a glass of wine in the California sunshine. We can accommodate anything from large parties to a romantic dinner for two...whatever feasts your fancy!

So enjoy. Try a few new things if you please. Share some great food with a friend, if you like. Become a part of the Corktree way of life.
