So we had this Wine Country Festival on August 6th, a purely San Diego Wine event, local wineries all in one place, pouring their wines. We held it at the Bernardo Winery on a steamy August day with over a dozen wineries present, anticipating around 200 in attendance. What we got, was a crowd of over 500, eager to taste local wines, ignoring the heat, bonding, sipping, enjoying… and ready to hear more about San Diego winemaking and the direction we’re headed. I think the only way is up. I look forward to next years festival and the exciting changes and growth to come in San Diego Wine Country!
