May 22, 2021 (La Mesa) - La Mesa Chamber of Commerce held a ribbon cutting to welcome its newest member, Wine Works. The La Mesa winery and tasting room recently reopened to the public after the pandemic shutdown.

The festivities included pies from Marie Callender's, chicken wrapped fajitas from Sombrero Mexican Food, and muffins from The Lunch Box, as well as honors from elected officials.

The popular tasting room offers wines from San Pasqual and Wyatt Oaks wineries. Guests can enjoy Thursday Sunset Trivia Contests (bring friends and team up to win wine-related prizes), live music on Friday and Saturday nights, as well as Sunday Fundays with $5 wine slushies.

Want even more adventures with wine?  Join the owners of Wine Works and San Pasqual Winery, Mike and Linda McWilliams, on a “Flavors of Portugal and Spain” wine cruise in Europe in April 2022.
