“This annual festival highlights the incredible quality and variety of wines being produced in San Diego County,” says San Diego County Vintners Association President Linda McWilliams, owner of San Pasqual Winery in La Mesa. “Our County is rich in microclimates that enable viticulturists to grow a variety of grapes and produce an array of varietals. This has inspired 115 wineries throughout our region to produce varietals ranging from Sangiovese and Syrah, to Cabernet Franc, Grenache and Viognier – and many more!”
