CHARLIE & ECHO

ABOUT

We’re an urban winery in San Diego producing natural and craft wine,
mostly sparkling, from local vineyards.

We’re small, independent, innovative, and care about everything we make.

NATURAL

We make a lot of wines using only natural, native yeast, and as little processing as possible to preserve the wine’s natural character, without any chemical “corrections”. Farming methods range from low input to certified organic.

CRAFT

In addition to our natural wines, we make a lot of experimental creations – like vermouths, sangrias, sours, and “cocktails” – along with hybrid collaborations with local beer, cider, sake, and mead producers.

SPARKLING

We love making sparkling wines that are delicious and unlike traditional Champagne or Prosecco.

LOCAL

We source from vineyards in San Diego County – the oldest and newest wine region in California. We love making wine from the area in which we live.

THE PEOPLE

CHARLIE: Charlie has traveled the world. Bargained in exotic bazaars. Been inked by an octopus. Stared down machine gun yielding militias. Eaten boa constrictor. She’s the most interesting woman in the world. Funny part is, that’s all true.

ECHO: Echo is a physics grad school drop out. He used to study charmonium. He used to be smart. Now he makes wine. Again, that’s all true. Just not nearly as interesting.
