2 Plank Vineyards
2Plank Vineyards is a boutique winery located in San Diego, California, dedicated to producing small volumes of the highest quality of wine. Our vineyard in Fallbrook is located on a mountainside rich with red volcanic soil near the Santa Margarita River gap, which provides the daily maritime breezes necessary for slow fruit maturation. In addition to our Red Mountain vineyard, we also source grapes from some of the finest vineyards in California, to create food-friendly wines that are great for sipping or aging.
BK Cellars Urban Winery & Tasting Lounge is one of San Diego County’s newest urban wineries bringing wine making back to the historic Escondido Vineyard District. Our cosmopolitan tasting lounge is the perfect setting to try our crowd-pleasing California red and white wines that are sure to tantalize the palate. Cheers!
California Fruit Wine
After discovering that wine could be fermented from any fruit, twin brothers Alan and Brian Haghighi, made it their mission to unveil fruit wine to the world, because they figured, why should grapes have all the fun? Every bottle of wine is wholly made from each fruit and is absolutely free of any added coloring or flavoring!
Carruth Cellars is an urban winery in Solana Beach that specializes in single vineyard wines from Northern California. Our award winning wines are made with Love and Gratitude in our tasting room that is open to the public 7 days a week! We are “Bringing grapes to the people”, you can thank us later.
Gianni Buonomo Vintners
Gianni Buonomo Vintners is San Diego’s only “beach winery” just steps from the Pacific in Ocean Beach. The majority of our wines are made from world-class grapes sourced from the Rattlesnake Hills in Washington State and brought to the beach for vinification. The second label, Gianni California, showcases the finest fruit available from El Dorado County in the Sierra Foothills AVA. Both labels boast food-friendly wines that are of exceptional depth, distinction and character. Gianni Buonomo Vintners is the only winery in the US that produces both Blaufränkisch and Charbono.
Koi Zen Cellars
Uncork, sip back, and relax. Our passion is wine, our goal is education and happiness.
Négociant Winery presents a refreshingly modern and sexy take on the traditional winery. The mission of Négociant is to bring a boutique winery to the urban North Park community, growing the local craft food and drink culture. Négociant offers an approachable neighborhood wine experience focused on sharing our passion for great wine through openness, engagement, education and participation in the winemaking process. With a new concept menu featuring gourmet small plates and tapas, imported and local cheeses and charcuterie, the winery provides the perfect setting to relax with great craft wines and good friends.
San Pasqual Winery
San Pasqual wines are hand crafted in small batches, using grapes sourced from local vineyards and renowned viticulture regions throughout California. Although our unique passionfruit wines (including the habanero-inspired “Hot Passion”), are consistent award winners at the local, state, and international levels, our wine list also includes a robust selection of award winning, traditional grape varietals and blends, including our 2010 Malbec, selected to represent California style Malbecs in Cahors, France – the “home” of Malbec. With annual production of 2500 cases, most of our wine is sold directly from the winery and tasting room locations, allowing a more personal connection with the people who enjoy our wines.
Solterra Winery & Kitchen
Solterra winery is located 2 blocks from the beach in the community of Leucadia in beautiful north San Diego County. We strive to make the best wine possible utilizing grapes from locally sourced vineyards along with grapes from all over California and Valle de Guadalupe, Mexico and have received Gold medals and Best of Class awards at top competitions in the state. Our restaurant has a full kitchen and we serve flavorful Mediterranean tapas that pair well with the type of wines that we produce. 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!
