Can you think of a better way to spend a day in California than to cruise Escondido, stopping to enjoy one of the many vineyards in the area? Rent a car from Greenleaf Rent A Car and check out one of the following local wineries.
1. Orfila Vineyards & Winery
Orfila is an favorite among many locals and visitors. You can visit their vineyard and tasting room about 30 minutes outside San Diego, or you can also visit their tasting room right in Escondido. The Orfila Winery location in Escondido features wine tastings and daily tours that walk you through the winemaking process.
2. Cordiano Winery
In 1970, Cordiano Winery owners Gerardo and Rose Cordiano moved from Italy to the U.S. with the dream of one day starting their one vineyard. The Cordiano family was able to realize its dream in 2008 when they first made their vineyard public. Today, you can visit their winery for an outdoor meal and a glass of wine, all with a gorgeous view of the Highland Valley in the background.
3. Hungry Hawk Vineyards & Winery
A newer winery in Escondido, Hungry Hawk features daily wine tastings and vineyard tours. To spend some time and enjoy the views of the San Pasqual Valley, bring your own picnic lunch and then sample from both red and white wines.
