San Diego Celebrates Urban Wine Week with Tastings, Events

May 31, 2015, Times of San Diego

San Diego’s growing collection of urban wineries are celebrating their craft over the next week, with special tastings Monday through Sunday.

There are over a dozen urban wineries in San Diego, buying grapes from the country and making wine in the city. The first Urban Wine Week is a celebration of the growing local industry.

Many of the wineries have special tastings throughout the week. Then on Thursday, the Headquarters at Seaport will host “Sip the City” from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

The event will take place in the open-air courtyard, where attendees will sip wines from more than ten different San Diego urban wineries for just $10.

Guests will enjoy live entertainment, tastes from Venissimo Cheese and Dallmann Chocolates, and a photo booth set up inside the Headquarters’ historic jail cell block
