San Diego’s Hottest New Wine Brand
Emerges in Ocean Beach
Best of San Diego Celebration Slated for September 15
The world-famous vacation destination known for its magnificent weather and a laid-back beach vibe, San Diego is also the proud home to the region’s hottest new wine brand. The Peninsula’s own Gianni Buonomo Vintners is grabbing headlines and making a big splash on the local and national wine scene.
Starting in January by winning a Double Gold Medal at the venerable San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition, Gianni Buonomo has remained in the spotlight this year by taking home Gold Medals at prominent international competitions from coast-to-coast. As the winery prepares for the 2018 harvest season, they continue to rack-up impressive accolades. Most recently, San Diego Magazine crowned them Best of San Diego 2018.
“Being recognized as Best of San Diego really is quite an honor. It’s exciting that the San Diego wine community is adventuring into wines beyond the basic Cab and Chardonnay, “says Keith Rolle, winemaker at Gianni Buonomo Vintners. Rolle has not only gained notoriety for producing award-winning wines, but also for working with some rare, underappreciated varietals like Blaufränkisch and Charbono.
Point Loma resident and wine enthusiast Jeff Duby commented, “It’s amazing to have a winery just over the hill that’s producing world-class wines. It feels like it’s our community winery and they’re doing some really great things.”
Long time Ocean Beach resident David Morrison concurs, “To be able to walk to a fully functioning winery in OB is great for me. I joined their wine club the day the doors opened because I really loved their wines and want to keep them in the community.”
Gianni Buonomo is pulling out all the stops for their Best of San Diego Celebration. They’re bringing in a first class Italian chef to create an amazing three- course Italian taste experience. Guests will also be treated to the release of their 2014 Sangiovese.
Winemaker Rolle continues,” I made this Sangiovese four years ago. It aged in French oak barrels for two years and then bottle aged for two years. It is finally ready for release. I made it for a celebration just like this.”
