We met some friends up here for a quick afternoon wine tasting. We were in the area around back with the picnic benches and park like area. The weather was perfect, such beautiful views from back there made it a very nice day!
My wife enjoyed the wine, and talking with Nikki who was working that area pouring the wine. She was very knowledgeable about the winery, and wine in general. She told us about some of the activities put on by the winery and about other parts of the grounds. She was a pleasure to talk with and a great representative of the winery!

We joined the "Owl club" Orifila wine lovers I guess? Anyway we have been there twice now and have enjoyed a glass of wine each time we have gone, We picked up our first order of wine from the club and are very happy with the price....and selection. If you are in the area, this place is well worth the stop!

Twice a month Orfila has a Trivia night. You can bring your own food and with lots of teams out for a good time, this is a great night out with friends. Fun atmosphere and good range of wines.

Continues to be one of our favorite spots to stop, sip and enjoy incredible Vista. Petite Syrah soooo very tasty!

I went to Ofelia with 3 other girlfriends for a weekday afternoon get-together. They are near the Fairfield Mall in Escondido so it was a convenient location for us who all live in north county.

For $15 fee you receive a glass and a ticket with six punch card. You can taste 6 different wine of your choice from the daily offering. If you like their logo glass, you can pay $5 extra and take it home as a souvenior. I liked their carbanet sauvignon and also merlot. The scenery was wonderful and we sat in ome of several tables and spent hours talking. We saw some people bringing their own picnic meal to enjoy with wine. We bought some meat and cheese there and it was great. Wonderful and relaxing place near everything.

Stopped by to try some wine. Beautiful grounds with a huge tasting room. Did not take the tour since we were short on time. I will next time. If I remember correctly they offer a military discount.

I stopped in at Orfila with a few friends. The wines overall were good, with a couple of standouts (the Montepulciano in particular). Brian, the assistant tasting room manager, was very knowledgeable about the wines and was fun to talk with. Large, airy tasting room with plenty of wine-related items to look at and/or buy. The wine prices were reasonable too. A nice winery to check out in the Escondido area.

Orfila Vineyards is a treat. Great varieties. Very cool vineyard, tour of production facility. Friendly and attentive staff. Very good service. Great gift shop. Our chauffeur was Paris of San Diego Wine & Spirits Tour. Highly recommend both Orfila and SDWS.

Joined my daughter and friends for trivia night.
Beautiful view and set up under a big tent.
Great wine and bring your own snacks.
Would like more questions and bit faster pace on the game.
All in all, a fun time!

I come from a country where wine has a long tradition. I know the California wineries produce good wines, as they do here at Orfila Winery A relaxing moment in the middle of nature. A very pleasant place. A very nice terrace on the edge of the vineyard. Very friendly staff. Good prices. If you come by car, do not drive. Come with a friend .... or a girlfriend.... who will taste the wine when he/she gets home ....

It's been a year since I have been here and it is still as lovely as a remember. We did some tasting and purchased a bottle to enjoy on the patio under the vines. We listened to the live music and enjoyed the views. The rose was very nice so we got a bottle to take with us. The food trucks come but this time he wasn't starting until 2 just as we were leaving.
