The Fallbrook Golf Course is purchased and the work begins to create Monserate Winery.
45 acres of vines are planted on the East side and another 30 acres on the West side.
New grape varieties are introduced and planted on the West side, bringing the total to 85 acres of vines on the property.
We have our first harvest and produce our first vintage of wine.
The Major Use Permit is approved. 4 years of hard work paid off, allowing the vision for Monserate Winery to move forward.
Our first vintages of wine are bottled and ready to be shared with friends and family.
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 Winery boasts 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.
Give back to our neighbors, near and far.
We grow a total of 15 grape varieties at Monserate Winery, featuring many Italian varieties. The temperate coastal climate of Fallbrook closely resembles that of provinces in Italy, making it a perfect match for Italian varieties.
