A new and exciting addition to the events at the Oceanside tasting room is Salsa Sundays!

Going back to Escondido, there is a live book reading with author Shari Lyon, on August 17th from 11AM-12PM, in the tent. Shari will be reading “Toby Came Late” for young fans. There will be time for questions after the reading, and books may be purchased and signed by the author afterwards. ALL AGES are welcome to attend this free event.
Orfila’s most popular annual event is coming up this month in Escondido. The Orfila Grape Stomp, August 24th. There will be grapes to stomp, live music, lawn games, special guests, tractor rides, and more! This year we are partnering with Crown Point Catering, who will provide a smorgasbord of food for attendees.
