You probably have never thought of San Diego as a wine tasting destination, but believe it or not, San Diego has several hidden wineries that produce award winning wines.
There are a few San Diego wineries within 30 minutes driving distance from our beach rentals. If you want to drive a bit further, spend the day and drive out to Temecula, about an hour away, which is a huge wine region with dozens of local wineries.
Wine tasting makes for a perfect day trip. Below are some links and information to local wineries:
-Located in picturesque San Pasqual Valley, this is an ultra-premium boutique winery. Award winning wines are produced here, with more than 1,000 medals in major national and international competitions.
-This winery is nestled inside the quaint town of Rancho Bernardo, and is one of the best kept secrets in the county. The winery is 118 years old, and still fully functional in producing wines. It was voted San Diego’s Best Windery by the Union-Tribune Readers Poll!
Twin Oaks Valley Vintners
-Located in the historic Twin oaks Valley of north San Diego. They produce a fine, full-bodied Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. All their wines are estate produced and bottled. Very close to our vacation rentals!
