MV's mountain top estate is located in Jamul, California 1200 feet above sea level near Rancho San Diego just 30 minutes from downtown San Diego. It was founded in 1972, built in Rancho Mission Architecture that utilized over 17,000 adobe bricks, 100 year old wooden beams and 40,000 tons of hand assembled granite retaining walls. Our vineyards were first planted in 1978 with Petite Syrah and today you'll find Mission Criolla, Muscat Canelli, Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Tempranillo, Grenache, Mouvedre with assorted table grape varietals.

The estate operates in part by eco-friendly solar power, nestled adjacent to a pristine 6000 acre nature preserve. This is a fabulous mountain view retreat, home to dozens of rescued farm animals and wildlife that have found sanctuary on the property. You can make an appointment to enjoy an informative, guided walking tour throughout the vineyards and the wine making facility. Their gift shop stocks unique souvenirs, vineyard attire and original oil paintings by MV proprietor Grego.


Maness Vineyards Estate accepts contributions and donations
for the long term care of rescued farm animals.
