We also feature live music, bocce ball, and a demonstration vineyard!
Stehleon Vineyards’ wines are San Diego grown and produced. Owned by Al and Lisa Stehly, their grove and vineyard management company cares for the vines which produce their vintages. Small, custom vineyards have been hand pruned and the fruit hand harvested. The making of the wine has become a family affair with daughter Alysha Stehly as winemaker at their urban winery in Escondido. Having recently planted their own vineyard of Rhone varietals, the Stehlys hope to eventually expand their offerings of wine that always pair well with friends.
Vesper is about local vineyards and their farmers. Alysha and Chris seek to produce the highest quality wines that create a memorable sense of San Diego. To do so, they allow the grapes to express their unique vintage and vineyard character by caring for the fruit and being as hands off as possible. Each bottle of wine is from a single vineyard and often field blended. Come taste what San Diego vineyards have to offer at our urban winery!
