Gianni Buonomo Vintners is San Diego’s First and Only “Beach Winery”
The on-site winery and tasting room is just steps from the beach and only about 10 minutes from the airport and Convention Center.
Gianni Buonomo Vintners produces award-winning wines from world-class grapes sourced from both Washington state and El Dorado County CA vineyards. All grapes are hand-harvested, hand-sorted and destemmed before being brought to San Diego for vinification.
Under the Gianni Buonomo label, four wines are offered; BlaufrÃ¤nkisch (a famous, cool-climate Austrian varietal), Avennio (a Rhone-style blend of MourvÃ¨dre-Syrah), Maestrale (a Bordeaux inspired blend of Petit Verdot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc), and a Sangiovese made in a Super Tuscan-style that is blended with Petit Verdot.
The second label, Gianni California, highlights grapes sourced from the lofty elevations of El Dorado County in the Sierra Foothills. Barbera, Charbono and Zinfandel round-out the Gianni California line-up. Gianni California will be ready for release in June 2016.
Gianni Buonomo also offers two white wines under the label Gianni Bianco. Gianni Bianco delivers a 2014 Sauvignon Blanc from the Russian River Valley of Sonoma County as well as an off-dry 2014 Symphony from Lodi.
