chuparosa VINEYARDS

26 June 2020

We have chosen to keep the tasting room closed until the pandemic situation improves. Unfortunately, San Diego County’s daily cases have doubled or tripled since tasting rooms, restaurants and bars have reopened. As much as we look forward to seeing everyone and sharing our new releases together, we’ll continue to focus on the vineyard and the winemaking, and hold off on the hospitality until it is broadly understood to be safe to do so.

In the meantime, our curbside pick-up of pre-ordered wine (and estate olive oil!) continues to be a well-received and easy way to provision for the weeks ahead (Square Online Store).

THANK YOU to all the die-hard Chuparosa Vineyards enthusiasts who have made the trip out to the vineyard to pick up your pre-ordered provisions over the last three months.  We are honored.

We have elected to keep the tasting room closed until the pandemic backs off in our area and the more aggressive antiseptic protocols are no longer needed. It is looking like that may not happen for a couple more months, because the average number of daily new cases and deaths in San Diego County has not yet gone down. We are not staffed to implement all the new practices that are currently mandated to open at this time while the pandemic continues.

As you know, we are all about the wine here at Chuparosa Vineyards. We are taking good care of the vineyards and wine, and are preparing to bottle the 2018 Sangiovese and Zinfandel and other 2019 reds next month. In the meantime:

For curb-side pick-up at Chuparosa Vineyards’ tasting room patio any day between 8AM and 6PM:  Square Online Store

2020 Estate Sangiovese

Cab Franc Aug 2013

We present 100% estate grown, produced and bottled wines that reflect the intensity of the long, warm, dry Southern California summers.  The vines produce focused fruit in the sandy loam soils.  We try to minimize the winegrowing and winemaking inputs, allowing the varietal character of our hearty red wines to shine directly through from the vines to the table.

We are closed due to the pandemic, but once the protocols are listed, please come see us at the vineyard any Saturday or Sunday; from 11AM until 5PM at our tasting room building and patio overlooking the North Block of vines.

Jan 2014 3-Yr Zin Vertical

 We are located in the beautiful Ramona Valley in San Diego County, 24 miles east of the Pacific Ocean and 32 miles north of the Mexican Border. The Ramona Valley received an American Viticulture Area designation in 2006, marking a renaissance of wine production in an area that prior to Prohibition had been home to thousands of acres of premium vines.

Chuparosa means “hummingbird” in Spanish and is also known as “one who flies from person to person stealing kisses”. The vineyard and winery was named for the strong, confident, and yet flirtatious nature of the bird – and the wines produced within its habitat.

  5.5 acres of wine grapes are currently in production
