Among San Diego's powerful charm is how it is tucked within wine-producing regions. It's mild Mediterranean climate is excellent for growing wine grapes. Visitors to San Diego's wine tasting rooms will find locally-made boutique wines that will please and entertain wine enthusiasts and oenophiles alike.
To the north of San Diego is the famous Temecula Valley. To the south is Mexico's Guadalupe Valley. While they draw more national attention, wineries exist in San Diego along the coast, in the East County, as well as in the fertile farmlands in the North County.
Wine lovers have their own favorite wine tasting venues all around in and just outside of the city. And scattered all around are groups that hold their very own tastings. There is no lack of wine tasting in San Diego for everyone, every day of the week.
The finest varietal grape-growing regions in western United States can be found in San Diego's North County. This region boasts a variety of vineyards - large wineries that feature guided tours complete with gift shops, as well as small family-run places. The small places are very cozy in that visitors do tastings up to the oak bar, and the "tour" is complete by just turning around to look at the tanks, vats, and machinery right behind them.
San Diego wineries are mostly off of Interstate 15, only about an hour's drive to the north of downtown San Diego. The vineyards atop hillsides and off winding dirt roads are quite a sight when you cross through mountain canyons in San Diego's northeast mountain valleys.
Wine Tasting is the "The Sensory Examination and Evaluation of Wine."
