Wine Tasting in San Diego: Wineries

The San Diego wine region has two formal Appellations: The Ramona Appellation and the San Pasqual Appellation.  A good number of the wineries are producing wine from grapes grown in these regions. Some of the wineries purchase fruit from neighboring Guadalupe Valley and Central and North Coasts. You’ll find a diverse number of wine grape varietal wine at San Diego tasting rooms as winemakers discover the best growing conditions for different types of grapes. Learn about wine grape varieties in my book Wine Tasting in Southern California & Beyond. Book
