Southern California is proudly becoming one of the most recognized wine capitals in the world. Temecula Valley currently has over 35 wineries, and has earned their title as Southern California’s Wine Country. But there are other areas of Southern California that are quickly adding their names to the wine barrel, so to speak, including Escondido, Valley Center, Pauma Valley, Ramona and Julian. In fact, the number of wineries combined in just these areas of San Diego County exceed the number of wineries in Temecula.
When it comes to wine, most people focus on the finished product, which is completely understandable. After all, when you order a glass, or bottle, of your favorite variety and vintage, you naturally are more focused on enjoying the fruits of the vintner’s labors than you are on dwelling on the process that brought it to you.
To the winery owners who are directly involved in that process, providing that first taste of perfection to wine lovers can be a long, arduous journey fraught with many bumps along the way; just ask Alysha Stehly & Chris Bromell, owners of Vesper Vineyards. They will be the first to tell you that this is a far from glamorous industry; it is a 24-7 job and a way of life, often consisting of garden gloves and science goggles.
