Gifts for San Diego Wine Lovers

Updated: Nov 16



Shopping for friends and family can be challenging as it is, however if your loved one is a wine lover, it can be quite easy. With over 140 vineyards/wineries in San Diego County, there are so many gifts to consider for the wine lovers in your life.


Join a Local San Diego County Wine Club


A wine club offers access to local wines from San Diego vineyards, and other experiences such as tastings and other exclusive member only events. Wine clubs are designed to send members a series of wine shipments at regular intervals throughout the year. Many of our San Diego Wineries offer a Wine Club Membership to join, with different options to consider - red wines, white wines, quarterly or biannual shipments.

By joining a wine club, often the member will receive these benefits (each winery is different with their perks):

  • Exclusive wine releases before available to the public

  • Complimentary tastings at the vineyard

  • Member-only discounts in bottle sales

  • Access to VIP member-only events

Each winery prices and organizes their Wine Clubs differently, but typically they will have options for all types of wine lovers. If you are looking for the perfect gift for a wine lover who enjoys the social aspect as much as drinking it, a wine club would be a great choice.


Not only are you giving a great gift, but also supporting local San Diego Wineries!


Bottles of Local San Diego Wine


If a wine club membership isn’t exactly what you’re looking for, consider visiting the San Diego Winery itself to purchase a bottle for your wine lover. Bottles of wine are a more affordable alternative of gifting a wine club membership, and still directly supports the local San Diego Wineries. Not only do our local wineries have exceptional wine, you can find something for truly anyone on your gift list (sweet wine lovers, red, orange, white, even bubbles)! Add in a gift certificate for a tasting, and you have the perfect gift for your wine lover.

Additionally, oftentimes, local wineries will also have a small gift shop, where you can purchase candles, hats, t-shirts, etc.


A Personalized and Private San Diego Wine Tour


To find the perfect gift for your wine lover, or a small group of wine lovers, consider a personalized and private tour of the San Diego Wineries.


Gifting a Private San Diego Wine Tour through Hidden City Wine Tours includes your very own San Diego Wine Country Concierge, Private Transportation, Friendly Wine Guides and more. What does that mean? We will work with you or your loved one to personalize a tour based on their wine likes and dislikes. Love bubbles? Bubbles they will have! Picnic lunch needed? Charcuterie? All logistics will be taken care of including any reservations and elevated experiences. And we will get you to and from the wineries safely.

Hidden City Wine Tour’s mission is to create a memorable experience by sharing our love of the locally owned small wineries of San Diego County. We are committed to inspire others to develop an appreciation for the charming wineries of San Diego County through visits, education, and one-of-a-kind experiences.
