Come visit us at our historic winery! Our venue is everchanging as we continue renovations. Enjoy outside seating and our gorgeously remodeled tasting room. Feel free to bring a snack and enjoy a glass or bottle of wine on one of our terraces.


Forgotten Barrel now occupies the former Ferrara Winery, which was designated a California historic point of interest in the late 1970’s and a historic site by the city of Escondido in 1989.  The winery, was established in 1886 as one of San Diego county and Southern California’s first vineyards.  The winery was purchased in 1928 by George Ferrara, banking on the repeal of prohibition by President Roosevelt. 

The winery reopened in 1932-33 with the passage of the 21st amendment.   During the next 75 years, Ferrara Winery grew to prominence in the California wine industry.  It was operated by 3 generations until 2010.  Forgotten Barrel restored the historic property and opened the tasting room in 2017 and will continue to tell the story of the Ferrara family and the history of this amazing California landmark.
