About Sunshine Mountain Vineyard

Sunshine Mountain Vineyard is located in gentle hills above the community of San Marcos, California. A pristine site, roughly halfway between San Diego to the south and Temecula to the north, is situated about 15 miles inland on the relatively undeveloped fringes of San Marcos proper. The Vineyard's tranquil setting and tiered layout result in captivating views, secluded event spaces and, above all, truly fantastic wines.

The key to Sunshine Mountain Vineyard's wines is the thoughtful orientation of the vineyard's vines and the exceptional characteristics of the vineyard's location. The south-facing slopes ensure exposure to the just the right dose of early-morning sun, and each afternoon a fresh ocean breeze wafts in from the Pacific, cooling the grapes to stabilize the flavor compounds within. These conditions result in a collection of wines that is renowned throughout Southern California.
