Forgotten Barrel is busy putting the finishing touches on our event space. If you dream about a small, intimate wedding at a local, historic winery; look no further. Forgotten Barrel will soon be hosting weddings of 100 or fewer people. The outdoor lawn space is green and lush, the barrel room is lit and cozy and the vineyard has that rustic fall feel. Our old barn and buildings are also the perfect spot for romantic and carefree engagement photos. Feel free to visit the winery and tasting room then scope out the venue for a spot to capture those picture perfect moments. We welcome you! We will be providing more information about the venue in the coming month. In the meantime, feel free to email us for more information about hosting your wedding or party at Forgotten Barrel. We look forward to sharing our historic winery with you!
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.
Maybe you’ve driven by the winery before and have never visited. Or maybe you make sure you do stop in for a tour and tasting each time you’re in Escondido. Either way, we hope we will see you this summer!
