Escondido Considering a Move to Wine Production
The city of Escondido is "thinking different". http://www.nctimes.com/news/local/esc...
Cooperative wine crushing and supporting the local industry. Very cool move. Let's hope the anti-alcohol wackos don't buy their way in.
The gentleman mentioned in the article, Chris Broomell, already makes (along with his wife, Alysha Stehly) excellent wines locally. I recommend checking them out: Vesper Vineyards is their main label, and they also make wines for many other projects including Triple B Ranches and Los Pilares.
In the newest issue of Edible SD are also some information about wines and wineries in SD and Temecula
