Lots of Tastes—and Stunning Vistas

These chauffeured winery expeditions are ridiculously fun—and remarkably informative when it comes to sketching out the depth and breadth of San Diego County’s viticultural profile. Tour packages are offered year-round; the “Gaslamp to the Grapes” special is particularly beautiful in autumn.

You’ll be able to catch your ride right from the vicinity of the Sofia Hotel here at the edge of the lively Gaslamp Quarter. Your skilled and knowledgeable driver will then lead you to three secluded family-owned wineries of exceptional quality.

Your tour includes more than 18 tastes of local wines, not to mention plenty of other perks. Enjoy a lip-smacking round of cheese and fruit at your first stop and an unforgettable dinner backdropped by a postcard-perfect winery vista. A wine totebag with a special gift is just the icing on the (grape-splattered) cake.

You’ll be dropped off at your pickup site after some seven hours cruising between wineries and soaking up the magical atmosphere of San Diego wine country.
