Charbono Fest - San Diego

Nearly Extinct Cult Wine Emerges in San Diego

San Diego Beach Winery Celebrates Release of Charbono

In a state where Chardonnay, Cabernet and Zinfandel are kings, the nearly extinct Charbono is taking center stage in San Diego at Gianni Buonomo Vintners in the coastal community of Ocean Beach. With fewer than 70 total acres planted to this rarity, Charbono is truly a cult wine.

Once a darling of the Napa Valley, Charbono was the go-to wine at the venerable Inglenook from the 1940s through the 1960s.Today, only 17 wineries in the US produce Charbono and Gianni Buonomo Vintners in San Diego is one of them.

You are invited to celebrate the release of the 2014 Charbono and Barbera at the Gala Event.

Tickets available online only. No ticket sales at the door.
