A little more about San Diego Wine Country
With a mild Mediterranean climate, it’s no surprise that wine grapes grow well in San Diego. While wine-producing regions to the north in Temecula and the south in Mexico’s Guadalupe Valley draw more national attention, San Diego wineries exist like hidden jewels along the coast, tucked into the fertile North County farmland and amidst the rugged terrain of East County.
Founded in 1889, Bernardo Winery in Rancho Bernardo is the oldest continuously-operating winery in Southern California. Guests can explore the sprawling property, home to 2,500 vines, browse more than a dozen shops on site and visit the tasting room where there are over 30 local wines on the list. The tasting room opens daily at 9:00 a.m. and pours until 5:00 p.m. on weekdays or 6:00 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Five tasting pours cost $8 and every Sunday from March-November, there is live jazz on the tasting room patio.
