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’s 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!

    Easy, beautiful, and excellent service

    We Loved our wedding at forgotten barrel! The greenery, the staff, the ease of booking a wedding package (price included a bunch of services- food , service, dj, bar) for a good price. Our guests loved having the whole place to ourselves at night so they could talk outside, dance inside or gather in the courtyard. Also, the coordinator managed the vendors for food (inferno pizza) , DJ (mauro) And desserts. the ceremony was beautiful – even in July heat! The grounds were kept cool and pretty shaded. Highly recommend .

    Forgotten Barrel Winery - Best location in Escondido!

    Forgotten Barrel Winery was our absolute dream wedding venue and our wedding here was beyond perfect.

    Forgotten Barrel is the perfect size venue, small enough to feel super cozy and intimate yet large enough to host 100 people. It reminds me of an italian villa with wine country vibes, old wood buildings, vines growing on the walls, and tons of dreamy nooks to take amazing photos in.

    This is the perfect place to have an outdoor ceremony and indoor reception with even the indoor area feeling very "open" and spacious. We chose this venue not only because of aesthetic but because of all that it included, tables and chairs for ceremony and reception, great beer and wine selection, recommended list of the best vendors, included dessert, and we loved how you could mingle out to the patio during the reception and you weren't required to stay inside.

    Alyssa, the venue coordinator is very helpful and detail oriented. She is great at what she does and I highly recommend you trust in her, she knows what she is doing and will ensure your day comes together just as you dream of! The day went immaculately! I was nervous because I had never planned a big event before and it went perfectly thanks to the crew at Forgotten Barrel. Chris, the general manager is also super helpful and contributed to the day running smoothly as well.

    We had churros for our dessert and they were a huge hit with out guests and our dinner was traditional Mexican food.

    We used DJ Frank from the recommended vendor list and he was the best!!

    Our day of coordinator was Korina from Serene Events and she helped our day flow really smoothly, and we highly recommend her as well.

    Another nice part of the venue is the bride and grooms suites to get ready in. They are clean, spacious and have good aesthetic. The bridal suite has big mirrors and high chairs, perfect for a stylist to do hair or makeup in.

    Thank you again to everyone at Forgotten Barrel for the amazing experience and for hosting the bet day of our lives!!!!!!
