this is a small precious winery with fantastic wine. if anyone is ever in the San Diego area just take a small detour to Escondido, you will not regret it. The wine is almost as wonderful as the gentelman who helps in the shop.
Some of the wines are terrific, a few are tanninny. The dessert wines are to DIE FOR! The prices, awesome, and the proprietor! Well she was more than occomidating. It was a vacation to remember. I am telling all of my friends! What a TRIP! Loved it!
WE loved this pace. WE knew nothing about wine and we had just visited the Orfila winery just down the road. It wan't bad, but we couldn't halp but feel that it was a little too trendy, and was trying to be a little too cool. Ferrara was none of these things. They were a quiet, old winery that had a lot of implements that they used to use in making wine. We walked in and were the only guests there. It's kind of a hidden jewel parked back in a neighborhood. As we walked inand stated we knew nothing about wine we weren't treated like idiots or a waste of this kind older gentleman's time. Instead, he pulled out two small glasses and stated that all we needed to know was that "we either liked it, or we didn't". He started pouring and telling stories about the family and hos own wine growing adventures. Never once telling us our tastes were wrong or we didn't like what he wanted us to. We were trting so many different kinds that we lost track of which was which. He was right though, we knew which one we liked. We picked out a Muscat (very fruity and bright) a Chablis ( we wished we would have bought more) a Chardonnay for a gift, and a dessert wine that tasted more like a liquer than a wine. WE bought a total of five bottles and only spent sixt dollars. It was a great introduction to the world of wine and a great reintroduction to truly great service and a welcoming atmosphere. We definently reccomend this winery as a place to visit and to enjoy. You won't be disappointed.
What a wonderful winery to go to. The wines are wonderful and the family is great! My 3 year old son loves going there and I've been taking him since he was a newborn. His favorite juice comes from that winery. A winery you must visit!
