Orfila Vineyards & Winery is an ultra-premium boutique winery nestled in the picturesque San Pasqual Valley, approximately 30 minutes from San Diego, on the way to the Wild Animal Park. Orfila produces award-winning Rhone-style wines from grapes grown on our hillside estate located approximately 15 miles from the Pacific Ocean and from other renowned grape-growing regions in coastal California.

Orfila wines are available at the winery's tasting room which overlooks the 70-acre estate, at select wine merchants and restaurants (via distributors and exports), through membership in the Orfila Wine Lovers (OWL) Club, and right here.

Since its opening in 1994, Orfila Vineyards has been the recipient of more than 1,300 medals in major national and international competitions - a testament to the complexity, grace and opulence of its wines.

The winery has been adopted by San Diego as a favorite venue for celebrations. It has beautiful facilities for weddings, anniversary parties, corporate events, fundraisers and all types of community revelry.

  • Pretty view, good wines, relaxed atmosphere and friendly people! Enjoyed a tasting and even took home a few Estate bottles. Glad I stopped by on my way from the Safari Park. Definitely plan to come visit again
  • We would have really enjoyed this winery if we didn’t bring our kids along. We stopped impulsively after the Safari park because of how lovely the place looked from the road but unfortunately children are relegated to a side area or in a back grassy area away from the views. There was very little shade for the side area we stayed at which I thought was extra bad as that was the spot for children and you would think they’d have made sure there was sun protection. I think I would have left a 5 star without children though as the wine was good and the accommodations we weren’t allowed to be in looked lovely. Get a babysitter or go to a different winery if you want to bring your children along.
