Escondido201 N Broadway, Escondido
California wine country nearly reaches the Mexican border in San Diego County, where the proud winemaking tradition is the state’s oldest and dates to the 18th century. Just outside Escondido, acclaimed Hungry Hawk Vineyards & Winery grows 15 varietals on vineyards with spectacular views of the San Pasqual Valley. Rows of grapes stretch toward boulder-strewn hills in this beautiful valley, where you can also see animals from around the world in natural settings at San Diego Zoo Safari Park, less than 10 minutes from the winery. Or to discover Escondido’s urban wine scene, try the Vesper Vineyards tasting room and the BK Cellars Urban Winery & Tasting Lounge.
