From their website: Rashelica Winery & Art is a cultural destination nestled in the hills of Ramona Valley, located off of Route 67. Visit our rustic, yet elegant winery where you will be greeted by a clusters of romantic statues as you walk up to our tasting terrace, where you can enjoy our quiet outdoor setting offering sweeping views of hills of vineyards.
While you are here, you can also enjoy a game of bocce ball or garden chess (with 3 feet pieces!). We have something for everyone!
About the Sculptures: Jaime Chaljon, Salerno Winery’s proprietor, is an avid art collector who has amassed a world-class collection over the past 25 years. Chaljon has added more than 30 of his favorite pieces to the vineyard’s sculpture garden, including works from Jorge and Javier Marín, Heriberto Mendez, Abel Ramirez, Rafael Levy and many more.
Personal Experience: For me, the main reason for returning to this winery is for the jaw-dropping beautiful sculptures. They are so detailed, romantic and full of emotion. It is quite moving. Pair that with great views and tasty wine and you’ve got yourself a peaceful day.
Although they don’t normally go hand in hand, I enjoy visiting this winery after adventuring in the Ramona area. It’s a great way to end the evening. Make sure you check out their hours so you don’t drive out here only for them to be closed!
They also have an opera house here which I was able to get a sneak peek of! I believe the owner of the winery may have been an opera singer or that is what I was told.
