Exhibit represents different wine growing methods and varietals grown in San Diego County
SAN DIEGO – June 10, 2016 – The San Diego County Vintners Association (SDCVA) recently placed second in the 2016 Garden Show at the San Diego County Fair. The educational exhibit is adjacent to the fair’s wine garden and showcases three vineyard areas that display different grape growing methods and three varietals – Chardonnay, Sangiovese and Zinfandel – grown in San Diego County and throughout California.
The exhibit supports the fair’s “Mad About the Fair” Alice in Wonderland theme with decorative character figures and decorated wine barrels. It also serves as the backdrop for the fair’s wine bar and daily SDCVA wine tastings, featuring wine made in San Diego County. Wine enthusiasts who are 21 and older can purchase a wristband and souvenir wine glass for $5 that will allow them to sample four out of twenty-two participating San Diego County wineries. The featured wines are rotated daily.
In addition to the vineyard exhibit, visitors can view a barn owl display that provides information about the barn owl population in San Diego County. Barn owls aid in the maintenance of sustainable vineyards and are used by many San Diego County wine growers.
