Ocean breezes waft over the hillside, which glows crimson with nutrient-rich volcanic soil, and the grapes of the Red Mountain Soil ripen slowly, swelling and sweetening at a leisurely pace. This salty-aired, nourishing environment is exactly what 2Plank Vineyards' winemakers need. They make individual wines with fruits from Napa, Amador, and Central Coast vineyards to develop more than 20 approachable gourmet libations. These bottles include 2Plank's specialty of rhone varietals, as well as chardonnay and award-winning zinfandels.
At the helm of his urban winery in the heart of the Cedros Design District, winemaker Adam Carruth handcrafts award-winning wines, including the 2009 San Francisco Chronicle Best in Class Alexander Valley Cabernet, from grapes he fastidiously collects from all over California. His team handles the production of each varietal from crush to finish, aging juices in barrels that line the walls of the industrial-chic tasting room. The final products—which range from a crisp sauvignon blanc to a bordeaux-style Surfing Madonna—slosh into customized stemware for patrons’ enjoyment seven days a week. Also in the tasting room, guests can break into crunchy baguettes or nibble on cheese.
Vinavanti Urban Winery vintner Eric Van Drunen's wines taste good on their own, but they're just as good to the earth as they are to their drinkers. This year, Vinavanti was the first San Diego winery to be certified as organic. This means its locally sourced grapes are sustainably farmed and its winemaking process is organic. After Van Drunen and his team hand-sort their grapes, they allow them to ferment spontaneously, without the aid of yeasts or bacteria. They also eschew other common additives, avoiding sulfites and even oak barrels, which infuse wine with oaky notes, resulting in all-natural, farm-to-table wines.

San Paqual Winery proprietors Linda and Mike McWilliams make wine— but they don't grow any grapes. They prefer to leave the rigors of raising grapes to their local vineyards, who they purchase them from. As an urban winery, they craft their vintages on the micro-level, making small batches and infusing them with an Old-World character and unique flavors such as habanero passion fruit.
