A Winery On The Beach? It’s Not Too Good to Be True

A winery on the beach may seem to good to be true but Gianni Buonomo Tasting Winery makes it a reality in San Diego. The winery sits just steps away from the beach. As seen on California Live on Tuesday, Feb. 11, 2020.


" Wine is something people love sharing with friends…that they bring to celebrations…..and use to console themselves. That’s my great reward." San Diego wine tasting at its finest is just minutes away from downtown, the San Diego Airport and Hotel Circle in the coastal community of Ocean Beach. Recently voted Best San Diego Winery, Gianni Buonomo Vintners features a tasting room that offers wine by the glass, by the bottle and a wine tasting flight through the entire line-up of award-winning wines.

How We Make Award-Winning Wine

"We only source fruit from the best vineyards, we maintain a strict sanitation protocol, meticulous barrel management……….and a little Pixie Dust."Great wine can only come from great wine grapes. At this San Diego urban winery we only source fruit from the top vineyards in Washington state (Yakima Valley) and the Sierra Foothills in California near Placerville. Superior fruit along with proven, fundamental wine making techniques assures that we deliver a premium product every vintage.

What We Do

"Operating a small production winery in San Diego has its advantages. For one, it allows us to monitor how each individual wine barrel evolves during aging."Our model has been referred to as an urban winery or a boutique winery. We are both of those. We're also a community winery. All aspects of of the wine making process takes place at our Ocean Beach winery. Community involvement allows us to produce small lots of super-premium wine.

Where We Make The Wine

"The winery is two blocks from the beach so there's a cool Pacific breeze drifting through all day. There’s no better place to go wine tasting with your friends."If you're going wine tasting in San Diego, Ocean Beach (or, OB as the natives call it) is centrally located to virtually everything in San Diego. Just minutes from the San Diego Convention Center, the Gaslamp District and Balboa Park, you'll find our urban winery on the western shore of the Point Loma peninsula at the end of Interstate 8.
