If you are looking for activities in San Diego this spring with more of an “adult” theme, you will find plenty to do. As we mentioned in a previous post about San Diego craft beers, we have a vibrant brewery industry right here in our own backyard. But there are even more ways to enjoy an adult-themed day or night in our bustling city. Try these ideas on for size.
San Diego Beer, Wine & Spirits Tours
What better way to enjoy tastes and sips of the City than with a tour guide who does all the driving and takes you from location to location? You can also book a La Jolla walking tour, coastal train tour or tasting party with the innovative San Diego Beer, Wine & Spirits Tours Company. There are plenty of local wineries as well as craft breweries and distilleries where these tours stop. Even locals are sure to find new favorites when they take a tour that includes the best food and beverage San Diego has to offer. What’s even better is the fact that they will pick you up from your home so you don’t have to worry about driving back after a day of imbibing. Feel free to book a tour any day of the year, but spring, with its fabulous weather, is the best season, in our opinion.
San Diego Wine & Culinary Center
If wine is your preference over beer, than a trip to the San Diego Wine & Culinary Center is a must for any local. The place is modeled after a wine cellar and includes a kitchen for demonstrations, reception space for events and a patio lined with a variety of colorful flowers. The Center features tastings of local and international craft wines as well as cocktails and spirits. Your booked tasting event also includes a custom menu using local ingredients. While the Wine & Culinary Center is meant as a venue for your catered event, you will certainly want to stroll through and see firsthand everything offered here.
Orfila Vineyards & Winery
How about a tour of a working winery and vineyard? Just a half-hour from downtown San Diego, Orfila Vineyards & Winery is located in the San Pasqual Valley. It features a tasting room with lovely outdoor patio that overlooks acres of picturesque vineyards. During a visit to the winery, you can expect to taste wines made from locally grown grapes, as well as vintages crafted from grapes grown in other areas of California. Their second tasting room, Orfila Oceanside, features small plates with artisanal dishes developed specifically to complement their wines and is located conveniently in Oceanside. A third location is also open in Escondido. If you are seeking award-winning local vintages, Orfila Vineyards gives you plenty of choice locations from which to imbibe throughout the San Diego area.
With so many world-class options for an outing that includes adult beverages, why settle for the same old bar and restaurant scene? Enjoy the best wine and spirits San Diego has to offer this spring and re-experience the lovely weather and scenic views that made you fall in love with the city all over again.
