In 1769, Padre Junipero Serra rooted the first grapevines in San Diego. Today, you reap the benefits at boutique spots like Orfila Vineyards & Winery. With over 1,300 awards and medals to its name, Orfila rises above the run-of-the-mill tasting experience with breathtaking grounds and hearty varietals.
New to Noir? Don’t be shy. Orfila’s Sonoma-bred winemaker, Justin Mund, is an encouraging teacher. So sip your way through Syrahs and Chardonnays—plus new releases like the 2011 Gewürztraminer—and leave with a bottle of one of the most renowned wines in the San Pasqual Valley.
