Vesper Vineyards started in 2008 with a simple goal: show that San Diego County can be included among the great wine regions of California. Growing up in the small community of Valley Center, founders Chris Broomell and Alysha Stehly learned from families long rooted in agriculture that the best produce came from San Diego's own backyard. Vesper Vineyards is the result of combining Alysha's scientific background, Chris' practical experience and the love they both have for San Diego County. Alysha and Chris understand that they can work in Napa, Sonoma or Santa Barbara, yet it is only in San Diego that they can create their own world of wine.
A hidden gem!! Charlie & Echo is small and it's easy to miss if you're not really looking for it. The woman helping us was very friendly and attentive. She was very knowledgeable about the wines. She offered some great suggestions. I loved everything I tried but I really loved their Grenache and Syrah. I was very impressed with their house wines as well. I don't usually drink white wine but their house white is one to try. Glad Charlie & Echo found us and reached out to us a few years ago. This is a great little place and I can't wait to go back! Oh! They make Spritzers too.*

Stehleon Vineyards wines are San Diego grown and produced. Owned by Al and Lisa Stehly, their grove and vineyard management company cares for the vines which produced these first vintages. Small, custom vineyards have been hand pruned and the fruit hand harvested. The making of the wine has become a family affair with daughter Alysha Stehly, producing and bottling the wine in Escondido in northern San Diego County. Having recently planted their own vineyard of Rhone varietals, the Stehlys hope to eventually expand their offerings of wine that always pair well with friends
