CALIFORNIAN WINERIES

Vesper Vineyard

We at Vesper seek to produce the highest quality wines that create a memorable sense of San Diego. To do so we start with the highest quality of grapes and bottle each lot of wine from only a single vineyard source. Our goal in the winemaking process is to take the grapes and let them maximize their unique varietal, vintage and vineyard characteristics. We strive to respect and capture the individual vineyard characteristics of the fruit in each bottle.

An award-winning boutique winery nestled in the pristine San Pasqual Valley agricultural preserve, where Executive Winemaker Justin Mund and his team produce premium Rhône-style wines from grapes grown on the hillside estate.

Visit the Winery On Cedros for a unique opportunity to experience a fully operational winery in an urban setting, blocks from the beach. We personally select and ship our grapes down from premier vineyards in Northern California’s wine country. The grapes are crushed, pressed, fermented, barreled, aged and bottled within our urban facility.

Gold Coast Mead

Golden Coast Mead was conceived when Frank tasted a glass of ten year old mead his grandfather had made. It tasted like sunshine and flowers in liquid form. Frank read everything about mead he could get his hands on, from Beowulf and Lord of the Rings to the Rig Veda and the Torah, and then he started making mead for family and friends. As he traveled the world as a Surface Warfare Officer in the US Navy, he discovered honeys that varied with the climate and region of the place he was visiting. He discovered that his meads could reflect the unique characteristics of each place through the honey at their base. The possibilities, opportunities and joy involved were too large to limit as a hobby. With the help of two lifelong friends, Joe Colangelo and Praveen Ramineni, who co-founded the company, they began to share the magic of quality mead with the people of California.Since October of 2010, Golden Coast Mead has been creating, reintroducing and sharing the magic of quality mead. Made in small batches by hand, Golden Coast Mead is dedicated to making tasty and interesting meads that are fun to share and savor.

KENDALL-JACKSON 2013 AVANT RED BLEND FRONT LABEL

Being a family-owned winery absolutely affects our winemaking. It affords us the luxury to take the long view. We can take risks and grow our grapes in mountain and hillside vineyards- even though it is more difficult for both the farmer and the vine. But grapes grown on mountains have more character and more flavor—and that’s why we grow them there.

As a family-run business, we can put the long-term interests of future generations above short-term financial gains. Our success will be measured by generations of family, rather than by numbers on quarterly reports. We can’t just be thinking about today, or tomorrow, or this quarter, or this year. We have to take the long view—100, 200 years—and think of future generations and the environment in which they’ll live.

There are some special places where you just want to be, to live. And among those places are the coastal maritime, cool hills and mountains of the California coast. I’m at peace and spiritually satisfied when I’m in the mountains and hills and benches of California—the very places where the best grapes thrive. The land gives us what we need. It gives us our shelter, our food, our clean air—all of the things we need, except for one: family.

 

 

 

Coomber Family Wines

From the outset we tried to make wines in the style that we like the most. If you like the flavor profiles below, you should really enjoy our wines: Chardonnay, We prefer the “California” style of Chardonnay, which is creamy and slightly buttery with a bit of oak. The oak adds a small amount of vanilla flavor and a smoothness/roundedness to the wine. Pinot Noir, We prefer Pinot that has more body and a darker color than the typical “wispy” Pinot that is most common. We like to say that we make Pinot that even a Cabernet drinker likes. Cabernet Sauvignon, Big, Bad, Bold, Dark and Oaky, with flavors of black cherry, raspberry, chocolate, a hint of vanilla, and some mint. Although it definitely has layers, it is not subtle. We donate at least 5% of all revenues generated (not just of profits) to animal welfare organizations. Currently, these organizations include the Rancho Coastal Humane Society in Encinitas, CA; the Helen Woodward Animal Center in Rancho Santa Fe, CA; the San Diego Humane Society and SPCA in San Diego, CA; PAWS; and Saving America’s Horses.

The spirit and style of the wines reflect the sun drenched terroir of each, the spirit and traditions of their people are alike instilled by the culture of the wine land.

Vinos Moebius

We are the creators of Baja California wines made from grapes that are products of unique quality and scrupulous personality.

Our wine reflects, in all its components, a bold young winemaking vision, plus a passion for caring for each of the processes that result in a wine. That’s why we called this effort Möebius, which represents the infinite, perpetual motion, change.

Where each year the best of the season varietal is selected to produce a wine of limited production and high quality. Möebius was born of the constant search for the details that make a great wine and help enjoy a unique experience.

It grew out of friendship and complicity amongst people of a new generation of Mexican growers with a common goal: to fill each bottle of the best terroir from Baja California, Mexico. With only five years in production, we produced our first label: Möebius. We are consolidating and expanding, looking for parallel horizons that take us through experience, dedication and hard work, the realization of a dream … our dream.

 Cavas Valmar

The story of CavasValmar starts when in 1919 arrives to Ensenada Don Federico Valentin, born in the French Alps and dedicates his life to his ranch. Being a good French he made his own wine and chared with family and friends. Then, his sons Hector and Gontran Valentin, associated with Fernando Martain continued with the family tradition starting the business on an old parking lot from the Ranch in 1983. First, they only had a small mill, a manual cork machine, a four-bottling machine, a basket press machine and 6 barrels, producing 3oo cases annually. – Description from milana

ALXIMIA

Alximia is a wine-making project born from the meeting of the senses and the world, with special attention to the earth, the plant, the fruit and its benefits. We are trying to understand, use and preserve nature.

Baja California is wine country, and wines are, in our view, the product of the transmutation of the four natural elements:

  • The earth that gives rise to the vineyards
  • The water that is vital in the Valle de Guadalupe
  • The fresh air that comes from the sea
  • The fire in the form of the heat from the sun

When you assemble these 4 elements, the space (or ether) becomes the fifth element that makes possible their existence.
