It was the first week of 2024 and we wanted to celebrate the new year and explore more of our new home San Diego. Of course, that meant wine tasting too! Off we went to enjoy a tasting at Carruth Cellars.
As new San Diego residents, we have a lot to learn. Top of our list is learning about the many and varied neighborhoods, and of course, the wineries and tasting rooms located therein. Recently we decided to visit Ocean Beach, quickly learning that we should call it “OB” and that we should visit Gianni Buonomo Vintners.
We love visiting wineries whenever we have an unscheduled weekend! There are a few winery events, however, that cause us to rearrange our schedule to attend. When we learned that Las Positas Vineyards was presenting their 6th Annual Bacon and Barbera Pairing weekend, we cleared our calendar to attend. This is an event not to be missed!
It was a brilliant summer morning in Murphys and we only had time to visit one winery. Such a conundrum given the wealth of wonderful wineries along Main Street! We made our choice: time to visit Lavender Ridge Vineyard.
