Cheers! May 25 is International Wine Day

By  | 

May 25 is International Wine Day. Luckily, we don’t have to travel far to enjoy a good glass of vino. San Diego is home to many unique and quirky wineries, and whether you’re a wine connoisseur or you’re new to the scene, there’s plenty of places that are perfect for celebrating.

Solterra Winery

Solterra is situated a couple of blocks from the beach in North County. Solterra’s owner and winemaker Chris Van Alyea grew up in Sonoma County and has been making wine for the last 16 years from grapes sourced in Sonoma County, Lake County, Paso Robles, San Diego County, and Baja Mexico. The wines have garnered Golds and Best of Class at top competitions in California. Solterra is the perfect place to celebrate International Wine Day. Play a game of bocce ball on the court or listen to live music on the patio from 6-8pm. Cheers!
