OUR WINERY
"A decade-long dream of a group of like minded individuals led by Dr. Rao R. Anne to start a winery in North San Diego has finally come to fruition.

Upon learning that premium wine grapes were being cultivated in Temecula and portions of San Diego County, this location was selected after careful research.

The Dameron Valley area of Warner Springs at the Riverside County line was chosen over Temecula, because of the abundant supply of pristine water included in the underground aquifer. This chlorine-free, low-salinity water would prove to be a major contribution to the production of exceptional grapes.

Dedicated to producing the highest quality wines led to a search for a winemaker, Michael Tingley, who posseses the talent and experience to oversee the production of the finest artisan wines to come from the estate grapes.

At Emerald Creek Winery we are dedicated to creating award-winning wines which begin with the gift we have been granted from Mother Nature. Starting with mineral rich soil we carefully nurture our grapevines allowing us to produce only the choicest grapes.

We are passionate about our old world winemaking style, from the hands-on meticulous harvesting techniques to fermentation/finishing with a careful aging process, resulting in the superior wines we make.

As we constantly strive for perfection in our wines, we also want to create a unique and fulfilling experience for each and every visitor who comes to our winery. Our vision is to offer an inviting place that provides our guests a place to tour our vineyards and property, as well as enjoy a relaxing atmosphere in which to sample our wines.

We take great pride in being the stewards of this land and the bounty that it produces for us; both in the vineyards as well as in the natural environment which surrounds us."
