Dubé Vineyards is a San Diego winery located in the Jamul community of Deerhorn Valley, California, about 22 miles (as the crow flies) east of downtown San Diego (about 31 miles by car). We were the first bonded winery in Jamul.
In the 1880s, Phylloxera had devastated the vineyards of France. So huge tracts of vineyards were planted in Southern California, including San Diego County, to satisfy the international demand for wine. Thus, Southern California and San Diego County were the original center of California wines. Then Pierce’s Disease and Phylloxera simultaneously devastated Southern California’s vineyards. Rising population and real estate values were the last nails in the coffin of extensive viticulture in the region.
We hope to be part of the vineyard/winery renaissance in San Diego County.
