Koi Zen Cellars Craft WInery

Uncork, Sip Back and Relax! That is our motto at Koi Zen Cellars. We are a hidden gem in the Carmel Business park in Carmel Mountain Ranch just down the street from Home Depot. A craft winery that has been named San Diego’s BEST Local Winery 2 years in a row. Husband and wife owned we are celebrating 4 years in business.

Similar business model as a brewery, but think GRAPES! We are a fully functioning winery that sources our grapes from the highest quality vineyards in Sonoma, Paso Robles, Santa Barbara, Lodi, and Napa. Grapes are shipped to our location and then crushed, fermented, barrel aged and bottled right here. We offer Bordeaux style fruit forward approachable red wines and blends plus light whites. Our wines have won numerous Silver, Gold, and Double Gold medals in a variety of national and international competitions.

Visit our relaxing, tranquil tasting room complete with a small Koi Pond. Enjoy a tasting flight or a glass. Listen to local artists on the weekends or attend one of our special classes or curated tastings. Our unique space is also that perfect place for your next event or meeting. Contact us for details.
