While Fallbrook is well-known for avocados, the number of wineries and vineyards has increased dramatically in the last few years. There are now nine local wineries which belong to the Fallbrook Chamber of Commerce, many of which take part in the chamber’s Wine & A Bite Art Walk events.

Guests at the event, held Friday, July 14, were invited to taste, stroll and nibble their way through the popular annual and seasonal event featuring food and wine from local restaurants and wineries.

All the tastings, which were served to guests in keepsake wineglasses, were included in the low ticket price of $25.

Growing a variety of grapes and/or producing both red and white wines, Fallbrook’s vineyards and wineries are found on hilltops from Rainbow to De Luz to western Fallbrook. Wine lovers can attend the next Wine & A Bite Friday, Aug. 11, and try a taste of what these wineries have to offer while enjoying the sights, sounds and delectable dishes offered up by participating chefs.

The Fallbrook area wineries are 2Plank Vineyards, Beach House Winery, Casa Tiene Vista Vineyards, Estate d’Iacobelli Winery, Fallbrook Winery, Sleeping Indian Vineyard, Roadrunner Ridge Winery, Toasted Oak Vineyards & Winery, and The Vineyard at 1924.
