Wine production begun in San Diego with California's first mission, Mission San Diego de Alcalá in the 1780's. The first commercial winery in the region is credited to Asher Maxcy's vineyard in Valley Center founded around 1870.

San Diego's oldest continually operating winery, founded in 1890 is the Ferrara Winery in Escondido. Ramona, Escondido, and El Cajon were all wine grape growing areas in the 1890's. Prohibition took its toll, but beginning in the 1970's San Diego growers have revived one of our oldest agricultural traditions and today you will find over 50 wineries throughout the county.
