impressed. The pineapple is light and refreshing, the pomegranate is just tart enough, and the cranberry tasted like spiked cranberry juice. We came here for their release festival and had a blast - with food trucks and live music, a sangria and Hawaiian theme, it was a great Saturday afternoon. Definitely worth a try - and a return!

Lots of unique fruit wines to choose from - from pineapple to mango to raspberry, or even the cranberry wine which just tasted like alcoholic cranberry juice. There are plenty of options, and it's a good place for people who are not necessarily "winos."

This is a cool winery in Vista with lots of fruit wine...so yummy! They were sweet, some were tart, and some slightly sour, but they were all tasty. The tasting room is fun too, with paper lantern lights and live music inside a warehouse style venue.

Coming from someone who doesn't usually chose wine, this place rocks! Their wines are refreshing and innovative and their prices are extremely affordable. The bartenders were very knowledgable about the fruit wine process and were friendly and helpful. A great stop for the seasoned wine-o or anyone interested in trying something new.

I'm so excited to have learned of California Fruit Wine. I'm a cocktail lover and interested in wine but these wines give me the balance I'm looking for. Not too sweet, refreshing with pronounced fruit flavors. My favorite was the pomegranate flavor but I love that you can mix ones such as pineapple & mango and also create sangrias. They sell the wines in fresh & easy but visiting the tasting room on a Sunday and chatting with the owners is a really fun time! I had
a blast tasting and was so thrilled for this spectacular locally-made wine!

Located in a warehouse district in Vista, CA this company offers handcrafted fruit wines. I had a taste of the pineapple wine (a little weak); cranberry wine (a little better) and the pomegranate wine (too dry for my taste). But, when I combined the mango and pineapple wines, I discovered a glass of wine that I could enjoy.

Ok so I was invited to this wine tasting event at California Fruit Wine in Vista. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the fruit wine, the staff and the owners. One of the owners Brian explained the entire process of fruit wine making, they aren't open very frequently but if you get the chance try it you will not be disappointed .

Let me start by saying yummm! Fruit infused wine! Mix and match and add fruit and you got some great Sangria. So not only do you get to try the wine but they also make different Sangrias for you to try.

I've never tried fruit wine before but I was pleasantly surprised. The pineapple wine in particular was extremely refreshing. It's kind of located off the beaten path but it's worth visiting. There are 6 wines to choose from, as well as the option to make your own sangria. Try it, what have you got to lose.

Located on the outskirts of Vista this place has all different flavors of wine. From pineapple to cranberry to mixing your favorites. The staff is very friendly and willing to serve you whatever you desire.

Hottest new wine concept yet… wines made with fruits other than grapes! Pomegranate, raspberry, blueberry, pineapple, mango, cranberry, and seasonal flavors (pumpkin spice!) as well. Amazing alone or in mixed drinks. Forget wine tasting in Temecula! They are located in a great north county location. Perfect for tastings, events, and bottle sales. Also available for purchase in CA Fresh and Easy stores. The owners are really nice brothers, the wine is relish, the atmosphere at the tasting room in Vista is fun and welcoming, they allow dogs(!), the customer service is great, and the price is right… what more could you ask for?!
