They were specifically created to pair well with the unique cuisine of California, still alive today from the days of the Spanish Californio Ranchos. These are wines that transcend time when paired with the foods charmed by the old settlers with spices & flavors of Mexico, Spain, & southern France. The Spanish Californio Rancho culture enjoyed imported Spanish wines with locally farmed foods, range raised cattle, & wild game. Aged in American & French oak barrels, for added complexity & structure for long bottle-aging.

This is not a requirement of the sale of this property but the vineyard has been loving cared for and grown to perfection and is ripe for someone who has an interest in this business. Should you not have interest in running a winery there are options of harvesting the grapes for a yearly profit. All the wines add a new dimension in Spanish-style wines, grown locally, with flavors that can only come from the Jamul area & environment. They complement the unique cuisine of California Spanish history & its heritage to the Ranchos of yesteryear, a culture & cuisine still very much alive today. With over 18 years of study, research, development, and experience in this style of unique wines, Spanish Peacock Winery brings back an almost forgotten dimension to dining in San Diego. The grapes & wine are estate grown in Jamul in an established, albeit small vineyard. With a focus on the highest quality of control, the wines are produced in small quantities under the close control & oversight of the vintner. Looking for an opportunity unlike any other currently available; then 16987 Lyons Valley Road welcomes you home.
