We feature a winery every month and we are so excited to share their story with you.
Our featured winery of the month is Fallbrook Winery, one of the OG wineries in San Diego County. Their long history of Bordeaux-style wines and award-winning wine making technique has kept them at the forefront of San Diego's wine scene and they continue to grow their 36 acre property year-over-year.

About Fallbrook Winery:
The original Fallbrook Winery construction was completed in 1981 and was used primarily for champagne production through the late 1980’s. In the mid 1990’s, the winery property was purchased and replanting of the vineyards began--primarily Bordeaux varietals (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petite Verdot and Malbec). The winery is located on the 33rd parallel and released the initial vintage of wines in 1996. The Bordeaux-style blend was named BDX by the winemakers, using the barrel designation code as the name of the wine. The hillside vineyards are 800-1,000 feet above sea level with a northwestern exposure and the lower acres are terraced.
Fallbrook Winery is committed to continuing to produce the highest quality wines from the South Coast and from other major grape growing regions of California. The primary winemaking emphasis is on the Fallbrook Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc Reserves. The initial release of the 33 Degree North Estate wines produced from grapes grown on the winery’s Gracie Hill vineyard was the 2006 vintage released in 2008 under the 33 Degree North Estate Vineyards. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petite Verdot and Malbec are the primary varietals planted on Gracie Hill Vineyard.
You can visit their tasting room within the aging cellar building at the winery. They are open daily, so be sure to give them a call for hours and reservations! 760-728-0156.
