Wineries + Tasting Rooms

Escondido's regional wineries offer over 20 diverse tasting experiences from cool urban wineries & tasting rooms to hilltop terraces with spectacular views where you can spend relaxing afternoons with friends and a picnic or freshly crafted pizza. Enjoy casual opportunities to meet the vintners, learn about their award-winning wines and hear their wonderful stories.

The Escondido Wine Region is rich in California's historical significance for both grape growing and wine making. Some of California's first wine grapes were grown and pressed right here, starting our state's wine making traditions dating back to the late 1700's.  Cheers!
