Southern California is rich with wineries and wine growing regions and some of the best California wines are grown here, and sold direct to the public at the various wineries.  Some of the wineries offer event centers, restaurants, catering and can host executive parties, corporate events, weddings, celebrations and park areas.  Some offer family picnic areas and play centers, and there are gift shops, wine clubs, tours, and tastings.


Update January 10, 2012  The Agua Dulce Winery in Agua Dulce is just a half-hour car ride from the San Fernando Valley and it's just a few miles north of Santa Clarita and Valencia and near the 14 Freeway.  The Agua Dulce Winery has been fondly named "the Napa that's six hours closer" and its award winning wines have been described as "ridiculously good."  The wines are sold at the winery and are also available at many retailers in the Southern California area.  There is also a wine club with discounts, and wine club members can even have a row in the vineyard named after them.  Membership in their wine club is free, and entitles you to discounts and to attend various events.

The Agua Dulce Winery has weekend tours that feature a gourmet boxed lunch, wine tastings, barrel tastings in the winery, and a winery tour to show the winemaking process.  Please call them for a reservation for the tours and tastings, and watch our Best Buys TV Show report below.  You can also have family picnics and there are some exotic animals to entertain the kids.

Barrel tastings are interesting.  Many wineries offer wine tasting where for a set price you can sample several glasses of their finished wines.  But a barrel tasting is what winemakers do to check on the progress that is being made on a barrel of wine.  In some cases you could taste a barrel of wine that is several weeks or several months from the bottling process.  A barrel tasting is an interesting way to learn more about the winemaking business.  If you take part in a barrel tasting and become familiar with the finished wines of a winery, you can learn how a winemaker can determine when a wine is ready to be bottled by tasting the wine's progress of developing in the barrel.  You will also learn how the wine can be transferred among different types of barrels to change its taste.

The Agua Dulce Winery is also very proud of its specific barrels used in its winemaking process.  Certain woods and constructions can help develop the taste of the wines they produce.

The Agua Dulce Winery also hosts parties and events and can have caterers provide services for weddings, holiday parties, corporate parties and events of any kind.  There is a gift shop that will provide the gifts that any wine lover will cherish and enjoy.  Pick up some cheeses to go with your wines.  Their website is or call 661-268-7402 for information.  The tours also include wine tastings and pairings where you can enjoy several different wines and learn which foods such as cheeses and chocolates go best with the wines.  It is a fun and educational experience.
