Best Wines from San Diego County

Put down the pint and grab a glass of these homegrown gems


Published:

Orfila Wine

Orfila Vineyards

Located on a picturesque 70-acre estate in the heart of San Pasqual Valley, you’ll find Orfila Vineyards and Winery. Its 2010 estate-grown Sangiovese is layers of deliciousness: plums, sour cherries, sweet spices from the oak, and a long, dry finish. $30. 13455 San Pasqual Road, Escondido

Ramona Valley

Winner of the French vs. Ramona Valley Wine Challenge of 2012, the Milagro Farm Sauvignon Blanc 2011 is a wine to be reckoned with. Refreshing crisp acidity, citrus, apples, and grassy notes dominate, with a kiss of oak on the finish. $23.
18750 Littlepage Road, Ramona

Edwards

A relatively new player in the Julian area, the Edwards family has won numerous awards for its unfiltered estate grown Petite Sirah. If you prefer a wine so dark and purple you can’t see through it, and inky black fruits, then this wine is your hero. $32. 26502 SR 78, Ramona
