Think San Diego is a beer town? Well, it is. But the area’s local wine producers shouldn’t be overlooked, and that’s precisely the reason for San Diego Urban Wine Week, a week of wine tastings, pairings, dinners, tours, and classes around the county highlighting local rosé, syrah, pinor noir, and more. Here are just a few of the events happening between June 1 and June 8.
