“Great local winery”
Reviewed December 29, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

This winery is located just outside Escondido - en route to the San Diego Safari Park. We have enjoyed wine tastings there for years and recently joined their wine club - OWL for short. Now we can enjoy free tastings every day that we want to go, as well as other special events. We especially like their Food Truck Fridays - taste food from several trucks, and taste wine - all is good that night!

“Great wine and music”
Reviewed December 1, 2013

Expect crowds on weekends as its a popular place. The wines are excellent and the live music outside made for a great afternoon. There was even a food truck that showed up. If you have kids in tow there is a great park area for them to romp while you sip wines.

“Fun place to visit!”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

We love going to Orfila Winery. It is a great place for a picnic with the entire family. We take a picnic for the kids, Grandkids and Grandparents. Everyone has a great time. We play ball with the Grandkids and the adults can do wine tasting. There is a large grass picnic area and you can bring their wine out there. We have enjoyed it so much we are now Wine Club members and went to the Annual Wine Stomp this year.

“A perfect place to spend the afternoon!”
Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Both locations in Escondido and Julian (Wynola) are worth a visit, as they each offer the same wines but different venues.

Escondido is perfect for sitting outside and enjoying your tasting while gazing across the vineyards.

Julian (Wynola) is a great place to stop on your way up the hill to Julian. Located at the Wynola Farms Marketplace, there are some cool shops in the same building as the tasting room. And on Sundays there is live music on the covered back patio.

Try the Benign Neglect syrah. We call it bacon wine.

“Beautiful location, knowledgable staff”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

We visited this winery and spent about three hours there tasting and touring the facility. The staff was very knowledgeable and spent a great deal of time with our group explaining the different wines that they offer. They are vary proud of their wines and winery and it shows in their enthusiasm. All in all a great place to spend an afternoon.
