Founded in 1945, Shadow Mountain in Sunshine Summit (near Warner Springs), is one of the oldest and best San Diego County wineries. It’s definitely worth the drive – even better if you spend the night in one of the nicely appointed tent-cottages. Vintner Alex McGeary and his wife and tasting room manager Pam preside over an impressive estate of beautiful old vines. At present our favorite wines are the 2006 Zinfandel, 2007 Carignane (grassy!), 2008 Merlot (mocha, dark cherries), and 2007 Cabernet aged in both American and French oak.
Don't expect a big, fancy tasting room; do expect a great tasting experience! You're welcome to picnic on the patio and walk around the grounds.
