I've lived in San Diego for almost 23 years and I still get excited when I discover hidden gems in the area. We were at a nearby winery and happened to stop at Domaine Artefact after seeing their roadside sign. What a beautiful spot! The...More

I ordered the Grenache which is famous here. 10$ a glass, and it was OK, too much taste, with an after polish rather leathery. The place is nicely situated in the classic hills of So Cal with lots of different table and chair areas to...More

Jody, thank you for your review. We are aware that our new system is causing problems! We have called the installation company and rest assured WE ARE ON IT! I am so sorry your experience was less than satisfactory.

The outdoor setting makes this a lovely place for a wine tasting. We tasted five wines officially and least four others. It was a great sampling of the wineries offerings. We purchased two white wines. Nicely done wine explanations by the docent.

Beautiful setting, great wine, awesome owners & staff. This is a small and low-key wintery with wonderful estate wines and olive oil.

We have been wanting to try Domaine's wine for quite awhile and FINALLY made it. Great wine, lovely area to buy a bottle & relax. Lynn was a great (funny) hostess. Looking forward to carrying their wine at Rose's Tasting Room!
