Historically, San Diego has been a tough town for wine. Beer, unsurprisingly, takes center stage with cocktails, spirits and cider following close behind. That’s beginning to change: restaurants are becoming less beholden to their staid wine lists that are tightly controlled by a small number of distributors, instead striking out into wider world of wine by finding smaller producers making exciting wines that aren’t often found in restaurants. Tasting rooms are also proliferating and it seems as if the county’s agricultural sector is gearing up for increased grape production and wine tourism. All of this means it’s an exceptionally exciting time to be drinking in wine in San Diego—the only question is where to go. Here’s where to drink wine in San Diego right now.
