WHY WE DO IT
``…something people love sharing with friends…that they bring to celebrations…..and use to console themselves. That’s my great reward.``
One step into the tasting room and you’re instantly awash in the unmistakable aroma of fine wine aging in French oak barrels. It doesn’t take long after that for you to sense our genuine enthusiasm and passion for wine making. It can’t be disguised or hidden. Where does the passion come from?
How We Do It
``…source great fruit, maintain a strict sanitation protocol, meticulous barrel management……….and a little Pixie Dust.``
Great wine can only come from great fruit. Fortunately, we source great fruit. The grapes we use come from some of the top vineyards in Washington state and the Sierra Foothills in California near Placerville. Long-term contracts enable us to work with grapes from the same rows in the same vineyards year after year.
What We Do
``Keeping our production small comes with benefits. For one, it allows us to monitor how each individual barrel evolves during aging.``
Our model has been referred to as an urban winery or a boutique winery. In our particular case, it’s a beach winery. We produce very small lots of super-premium wine and every aspect of the wine making process takes place on-site.
Where We Do It
``The winery is right by the beach and has a cool Pacific breeze drifting through it all day. There’s no better place to enjoy great wine with great friends.``
It’s probably fair to say that Ocean Beach has never been considered a hotbed for fine wine production. Known more as a laid-back, surfer, beer and burrito town, OB (as the locals call it) is the home to San Diego’s first “beach winery;” Gianni Buonomo Vintners.
