San Vicente Valley Club’s Home & Winery Tour slated for May 12

By Claudia Weringa

San Vicente Valley Club has added something special to its home tour this year — a tour of two Ramona wineries.

Mario and Diana Bergeron’s La Finquita Vineyards & Winery is one of two wineries on the Valley Club’s Home & Winery Tour.

In addition, the tour will feature the country ranch home of Jim and Debbie Garcia, who moved to Ramona in 2002, purchased their home in 2004, and remodeled the fireplace with marble. A quilter, Debbie spends many hours in her quilting room designing quilts that are used as wall hangings and decorated throughout the home.

All the rooms have red accent color with gold and tan. Home Tour hours are from 10 a.m. to noon.

The two winery tours will be open from 1 to 4 p.m.

Jim and Debbie Garcia’s home is included in the San Vicente Valley Club’s May 12 Home and Winery Tour.

Jennifer Jenkin, owner and winemaker of Pamo Valley Winery on Black Canyon Road will give a tour of the vineyards and barrel room. Guests will be treated to free barrel tasting as they enjoy the views. Looking across the vineyards over the valley, guests could believe they are in Italy.

La Finquita Vineyards & Winery, Mario and Diana Bergeron’s small, family-owned and operated winery, sits on eight acres in Ramona’s wine valley. The property includes two acres of vineyards. La Finquita means little farm or plantation. Visitors can get personalized custom labels and bottle etchings. Guests are invited to sip half-price glasses of wine on the veranda or as they meander through the vineyard and cave.

The view from Pamo Valley Winery has been compared to Italy.

The day will be filled with other interesting activities. Events at San Vicente Inn, 24157 San Vicente Road, will be from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The Bake Sale/Collectibles, opportunity baskets, and vendors will provide numerous choices, and a no-host Luncheon/Fashion Show will be from noon to 1:30 p.m. Reservations are recommended with the front desk at San Vicente Inn.

Tickets for the day’s tour are $10 and must be presented at each location. Tickets are available in advance from Kaaren Thiem at 760-788-4840 or at the front desk of San Vicente Inn.

Opportunity Drawing tickets are $1 each, six for $5, 12 for $10 and 30 for $20. They will be available the day of the event. The drawing for opportunity baskets will be at 4:30 p.m. Winners do not need to be present.

    I have friends who are interested in craft selling at our Home Tour event. How much is it to sell, and whom do you contact?
