October 20, 2021 -  Robert Renzoni Vineyards

NO HOST WINE RECEPTION 6:30 PM.  |  NO POTLUCK - Please eat before the meeting.





 The Robert Renzoni family purchased the Temecula property in 2006 and 2007. They opened their doors to the public in the spring 2008. In May of 2014 they moved into the existing beautiful facility. 


The family story started well before then. In 1886, when Great Grandfather Federico began working in vineyards in Fano, a small Italian village on the shores of the Adriatic Sea. Federico and his father then began making wine for family and friends. 


 Their Tuscan- villa features a restaurant, wine laboratory, wine club facilities, beers on tap, and other treats. Their winemaker, Olivia Bue is a graduate of UC Davis, who started at the winery in 2014, after winemaking experience in Australia and Napa. 

This will no doubt be a great meeting presented by General Manager Phil Randall, who has experience in most aspects of the hospitality business in both food and wine. Phil is an excellent speaker with vast knowledge of both wines and the winery business. 


We will look forward to this upcoming meeting with great anticipation.

Our first local winery outing was held in September 2021. We visited local chapter members, Gianni Buonomo Vintners in Ocean Beach. 


Tastings were $15 per guest for sampling the 6 wines they will be pouring are Sangiovese, Barbera, and Blaufranchish. These wines are multi awarded across many competitions, and the winery is located the heart of Ocean Beach, making it a perfect stop while enjoying the sand.


We had a wonderful time and look forward to our next destination. Look in the Wine Lines Newsletter for details in upcoming issues.



San Diego Wine Guild Annual Camping Trip


A good time was had by one and all at the 2021 Annual Campout at Paso Picacho State Park.


Wine line up was stellar with a delicious potluck dinner both nights around a roaring campfire.


Saturday we had a day trip to Volcan Mountain Winery with live music overlooking the vineyard. We met up with more SDWG members for more food, wine and great conversations. Could not have asked for a better time. Fall was definitely in the air.
