Welcome to the San Diego Wine Fanatics Meetup Group. We are *not* a wine tasting or aficionado group (though there are exceptions). What we are is a wine drinking group that meets at least once a month to check out local wine bars and wineries (sensitive palates welcome, but not required). Our group consists of anyone who enjoys wine and making new friends. We welcome singles and couples, young and old (well at least 21 I guess). We encourage you to come make new friends or visit with old ones in a comfortable atmosphere. My plan is to make each and every person feel welcome in the group. I'd like to to find at least one new wine bar/tasting room a month that we can visit. Suggestions are welcome. We explore just about every neighborhood in San Diego between La Mesa and Point Loma and Del Mar to Down Town.
It's been a year since we went to Solterra Winery in Encinitas, so join us for some nice parings with Wine and friends!
Solterra Owner and Winemaker Chris Van Alyea grew up in Marin and Sonoma County and has been making wine for the last 16 years from grapes sourced from Sonoma county, Lake County, Paso Robles, San Diego County, and Baja Mexico.
Their wines have garnered Golds and Best of Class at top competitions in California.
I have worked out the same deal we had last time, so we got six tastings for 20.00 dollars (which includes the service charge and tax). It would also make it easier if everyone pays in cash, but you can still use a credit card if needed.
Kim will be at the entrance to the back area to take your money and get your 6 tastings just like we did last time.
Here is the tasting menu and I am working with Alex to get some food added to the list as well. You can always come early and enjoy any food from the inside if you want.
-2018 Sauvignon Blanc
-2017 Cask Chardonnay
-2017 Pinot Noir SLH
-2016 Cabernet Sauvignon
