High above Escondido’s San Pasqual Valley, nestled between granite-studded ridges, lies Domaine Artefact. The estates’ east-west valley ranges from 850ft to 1,000ft in elevation, offering a unique microclimate, moderated by cooling maritime breezes. Domaine Artefact was founded in 2007 and is dedicated to crafting premier wines from Rhône grape varietals. The estate grows five white varietals - Viognier, Grenache Blanc, Marsanne, Roussanne and Clairette Blanche and six red varietals - Grenache Noir, Mourvèdre, Carignan, Counoise, Syrah and Petite Sirah. We offer a Rosé of Grenache Noir, two GSM's, a white wine blend, a "vin de paille" dessert wine and single varietals. Domaine Artefact also produces organic olive oil, offers cooking classes and "VRBO" opportunities.
