About

On WeddingWire since 2018

Forgotten Barrel Winery is a vineyard wedding venue located in Escondido, California. This historic winery was originally established in 1886 as one of San Diego county and Southern California鈥檚 first vineyards. The winery was purchased by George Ferrara in 1928, grew to prominence in the California wine industry, and was run by 3 generations until it closed in 2010. Forgotten Barrel restored this historic property in 2016 and continues to tell the story of the Ferrara family and the history of this amazing California landmark. We offer a beautiful space for weddings, dinners, corporate events, and so much more!

Incredibly experience. HIGHLY recommend!

Where to begin with how happy we are we selected Forgotten Barrel Winery for our wedding ceremony and reception! The service was unmatched with this venue. Alyssa was incredible from start to finish- her communication, professionalism, organization, kindness, and flexibility was SO appreciated. She worked tirelessly to ensure all of our needs and requests were met. The venue is incredible- the getting ready rooms, the natural beauty for photos, and all the staff are spectacular! All of their preferred vendors are incredible and I love how they all work together as a team to ensure the vision of the couple is achieved. HIGHLY recommend thisi venue for a wedding celebration. Thank you so much to Alyssa and Chris and all the staff at Forgotten Barrel Winery!!

A beautiful day!

We feel so lucky to have come across this venue online when we were on the search.

From the day we came to tour, Kris and Alyssa were extremely helpful, kind, and responsive. They took the time to answer our many questions and worked with us to make our wedding what we wanted. Their comprehensive package was a great option that made the wedding planning process seamless.

The grounds are beautiful, well kept, and our guests wouldn鈥檛 stop complimenting other venue. There are so many amazing photo spots, our photographer also loved it. It truly is one a kind. We are so happy with our selection and would not hesitate to recommend this venue to our friends & family, thank you Alyssa & Kris!

Always a great time at Forgotten Barrel!

I鈥檝e worked at Forgotten Barrel many times and I always enjoy my time there DJing for my couples and working with the staff who are led by Alyssa and Chris. Not only have I always enjoyed my experience there but my couples always enjoy their time there and they fall in love with the venue. As one of the most unique venues I鈥檝e ever been to they provide an amazing and rustic setting for ceremonies and for receptions, giving an escape for wedding guests looking to have a memorable time. Always on point with their service, I honestly can鈥檛 wait until the next wedding that I will be working at Forgotten Barrel Winery.

Thanks Alyssa and Chris!!
