Escondido Considering a Move to Wine Production

The city of Escondido is "thinking different".

Cooperative wine crushing and supporting the local industry. Very cool move. Let's hope the anti-alcohol wackos don't buy their way in.

  1. I'd support any move which helps us produce more foods locally. It will no doubt take decades but it's possible we could eventually get some nice locally produced wines.

      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.

    2. In the newest issue of Edible SD are also some information about wines and wineries in SD and Temecula
