Open Year Round
Belle Marie Winery and Chateau Dragoo are located on the Escondido Wine and Culinary Campus in North Escondido along Interstate 15. Our facility encompasses a 20,000 gallon winery, three tasting rooms, multiple corporate and reception venues, educational facilities, a gourmet garden and a demonstration vineyard with varietals from around the world.
Belle Marie makes at least 30 different wines each year, many of them produced specifically and exclusively for our Vintage Club members. To ensure a consistent supply of the highest quality grapes and the greatest possible diversity of varietals, we own or control vineyards in the finest growing regions throughout California. From Northern California to Southern California to Baja California, we grow more than 100 different grape varietals in the areas where the soils and microclimates allow each to thrive.
Almost all varietals in our vineyards were cloned directly from the major wine producing countries of the world, including the United States, France, Italy, Spain, Australia and New Zealand. This abundance of quality varietals allows us to produce almost any style of wine that is available in any part of the world.
