Cheers, Del Mar!

Each issue of Del Mar Lifestyle is a fun month for us to celebrate the stories of our community but we’ve been excited for our Local Beer & Wine focus this month for a while. Del Mar and San Diego have so much to celebrate that is right in our backyard. This month, we take a look at the continuing growth in the craft beer scene on page 24. We also take a road trip to San Diego County’s only local wine region….most people think Temecula but nestled in the hills near Ramona are over 32 wineries that beckon – see page 28 for more.

What’s great about wine is we often enjoy it while sharing connections with family and friends. If you’re having a formal get together or just an impromptu entertaining moment – we stopped into Venissimo Cheese and share some of our favorite pairing ideas on page 26.

What makes Del Mar so great is our support for community and we are excited to showcase one of the new hot spots in town, Tasting Room Del Mar.  David and Evan Taylor and their star team show us what makes this restaurant so unique. Plus, we are excited for their first ever Local’s Only Open House event on October 3rd. See page 38 for more on that upcoming event.

Speaking of events – don’t miss the reveal for Molly M. O’Neil Design’s new showroom on October 13th at 5 p.m. Stop by and say hello, and enjoy some great food and music with us.

And finally, another fun Local’s Choice this month from Bryan Mayer, Sommelier from L’Auberge Del Mar, who shares some of his favorite things on page 34.

Cheers, Del Mar!
