Menghini is one of two wineries located in Julian, a small town in the mountains east of San Diego. The property includes six acres of vineyards, an apple orchard, and an outdoor dance floor/performance space. Owners Mike and Toni Menghini are super friendly an very knowledgeable about wine and everything else in east San Diego County. A number of cats and a dog here and there help greet visitors who stop by for a tasting or a picnic on the veranda. The Menghinis want us to drink their wines now, which is not hard to do! The whites are crisp an fresh; the reds are medium-bodied and very food friendly. During the summer the winery hosts several music and art events.
