Our Story

Monserate Winery began with a desire to preserve the beauty and integrity of Gird Valley.  For 56 years, the beautiful 116-acre property was a public golf course, dotted with 100-year-old oaks and towering sycamore trees.  After falling on hard times, the golf course closed.  We had a vision to revitalize the land and create something incredible that would also enrich the lives of the surrounding community, and thus, Monserate Winery was born.  We have been hard at work to bring this vision to life since 2016 and have made a lot of progress. Today, Monserate’s San Diego county wineries boast breathtaking vineyards, tranquil lakes, and spectacular scenery.  As we continue to grow and expand our operations, we stay true to our original vision:


Strive for excellence in everything we do.


Preserve the beauty and integrity of the land.


Enrich the lives of our neighbors, near and far.
