Picture Malibu, Los Angeles, Orange County and San Diego, and this is exactly what you see: blue skies, surf, sunshine—maybe even a movie star or two. The stars of southern California wine share the blue skies and sunshine of our famous beaches, but the lifestyle is more serene, with quiet vineyards tucked into rolling valleys and foothills. Picture this: one San Diego vineyard grows their Cabernet Sauvignon at 1,300 meters (4,400 feet) above sea level, the highest vineyard elevation in California.
