The mission of SIP SAN DIEGO is to increase awareness of locally crafted, artisanal wine, mead and cider while creating a collaborative community for our skilled city wine, mead and cider makers.
It is also our intention to encourage San Diegans, if they have the means, to “Sip Small” every opportunity they have; opting for purchasing locally crafted beverages as opposed to the mainstream brands. These unprecedented times have taken a monumental toll on small businesses, especially right here in San Diego, a craft beverage mecca. Show your support and… SIP SMALL. SIP SAN DIEGO.
WHO WE ARE
SIP SAN DIEGO is a nonprofit collective of urban wineries, meaderies and cideries located throughout the entire county of San Diego. Our dedicated members source superior fruit and ingredients to produce award-winning beverages in spaces throughout the urban core of San Diego. We encourage an exploration of the San Diego urban wine, mead and cider scene to fully experience the craft beverage renaissance unfolding in our city.
HOW WE GOT HERE
In 2013, we launched as San Diego Urban Wineries with a mission of increasing awareness of locally crafted, artisanal wine. We wanted San Diegans to know they didn’t need to leave their beloved city and drive to a big winery to experience excellent wine! Well, feeling more than confident that mission had been accomplished and ready for a change, we moved forward with opening up our membership to meaderies and cideries in 2020!
“As a forward-thinking organization, we felt there were far too many similarities among the industries, the beverages and the clientele to not open our membership to cideries and meaderies in an effort to do more together than we can do separately.”
