While in San Diego, we decided to visit the winerys on Hwy 94. This was our first stop, and we spent quite a while here talking with the owner and other relatives working the vineyard. The property had been in the same family since the 1880s. They are relatively small, and want to remain that way to keep control over their product. We were very surprised at their dry Riesling, who h neither one of us typically like. It is far more complex than expected. We bought a mixed 6 bottles and some lovely Vietnamese chocolate. They deal with a Mexican company who makes chocolate from sustainably sources, fair trade beans from throughout the world. It was all wonder and different. They also have a B&B suite.

We discovered the Dulzura Vineyards about 5 years ago while out wandering the backroads of Chula Vista. Grab your ‘main squeeze,’ pickup some cheese n cracker at the local store. Cruze on down Dulzura Vineyards. Purchased a bottle or two and go sit on the Gazebo among the Vineyards. Take your time, sip on the Wine and enjoy the view with good company. Definitely worth the drive.
I come here about twice a year. Don’t know why I don’t come more often. Thank you Grant and Sara you make excellent wines!

The wines are all pretty good - the Merlot and Riesling were my favorites! Owners are fun people to chat with while doing a tasting or selecting a glass of your favorites. No pressure, nice relaxing day - great scenery. Wonderful to sit outside and listen to all the birds flying around the wooded area. So close to San Diego - yet you feel like you have traveled for hours to get this close to nature!

This is my second review of this location, the first was in 2015. The drive out to the Dulzura Winery is almost worth the trip itself, but this winery gets better every year! I visited yesterday and spent nearly three hours there (most of it on the porch!). They have added a full range of white wines to balance their powerful reds. I sampled an outstanding Riesling, a subtle Viognier, a very nice Pinot Grigio and a sweet Sauvignon Blanc. And to top off the new offering, a rose, a vin Gris made from Cabernet Sauvignon is perfect for kicking back with friends on a sunny afternoon.
The best thing about the Dulzura Winery is the very nice people! Plan to spend a little time to talk to them. Other cool things: walk up the hill behind the tasting rooms into the vineyard where there is an elevated platform that offers you a great view of the Dulzura valley. Bring a picnic lunch, buy a couple bottles of wine and set up on one of the picnic tables down by the creek. There is now a B&B apartment above the tasting room in case you want a relaxing weekend. Enjoy this place, the wines, the people!

Small local vineyard. Open only on weekend. Our host knew his stuff. Found the reds to be all very high in alcohol

Thank you for taking the time to visit our winery and posting a review. I was the one who poured for you during your visit..and wish to respond to your comment regarding the 'very high alcohol' content of our red wines. Typical (most) Cabernet Sauvignons have alcohol ranges from 13.5% to 14.5% alcohol by volume. Our '14 Cab is 13.6%...on the low side. Typical Cabernet Franc is in the same 13.5%-14.5% range. The '14 Cab Franc you tasted is 14.2%...the middle of the range. Most Malbecs fall into the same range. Ours is lower than typical at 13%. The last red you sampled here was the Zinfandel. Most typical Zinfandels contain between 14%-15.5% alcohol by volume. The '14 Zin we are pouring is 14.9%. Of course, personal taste is what matters most. Sorry you didn't enjoy them.

We decided to do something different out in East County. Wine tasting tour along Highway 94. I won't mention our first two stops because the wine at the first one was not good and the parking at the second was not good. But the third, Dulzura Vineyard & Winery, was very good on both counts. This winery is rustic and friendly. There is ample parking and even a picnic table. The owner, Grant (sorry did not get his wife's name), was welcoming, friendly and informative. The land where the winery sits has a long history and Grant is happy to share it with you. Their wines are quite good. We tasted several and took home the '14 Cab Sauvignon, '14 Cab Franc and Vin Gris. The reds are hearty and ready to drink. We enjoyed our stop at Dulzura. There are three or four more wineries along Highway 94, we plan to visit the others on another trip. Out of the way, but worth the ride.

Owned by the Clark Family this vineyard has many many years and produce a great wine. We tasted all of them and were really amazed.
One of the owners gave us the tour and explained how the make their wine sold only at the vineyard.
Of course we bought one of each because we really thought they are amazing.
We truly recommend to make a visit. It's worth !!!!

Stopped here to start off our mini wine tour and was pleasantly surprised. Incredibly friendly staff, especially "uncle Ev" and Chester the dog who took to my son and made our visit even more special. Wine was delicious and the history of the vineyard is pretty deep. Would highly recommend!
