We are excited about the opening of our newly renovated tasting room. If you haven't had a chance to visit us yet, we invite you to join us for a tasting, glass of wine or purchase a bottle to enjoy on our beautiful grounds. We have opened the courtyard, the front area and the side arbor sitting area. Newly planted trees along with existing ones provide plenty of shade. You might even meet Smokey our winery pup! You are welcome to bring your dog to the grounds (on a leash please)! We don't have any food for purchase at our location so please feel free to bring along your own picnic or snacks.
While you are there, you might notice other activity on the grounds. We have finished the tasting room, but our winery and event space are still under construction. The plan is to start making wine and bottling this fall out back in our winery and to have our event space ready for weddings and large groups next spring. In the meantime we are able to book smaller parties. Please ask if you want more information!
We are excited to join the other local Escondido wineries offering delicious wine and a relaxing place to hang out.
Forgotten Barrel offers a wide selection of premium hand crafted wines using fruit sourced from Napa, Sonoma, Central Coast and San Diego County.
The reincarnation of the former Ferrara Winery has transformed this once-forgotten homestead into a tranquil rustic hideaway in the city. Our winemaker, John Eppler, hails from Northern California, having worked in Napa for Robert Mondavi, Rosenblum Cellars, and his own brand, John Robert Eppler Wines. Visitors are sure to enjoy a friendly and relaxed wine tasting that will long be savored.
