This local foodie offers culinary walking tours of the village and, in the process, helps fellow San Diegans and out-of-towners find our best food and wine gems.
Her three-hour excursions include four to five stops, including local restaurants, a purveyor of chocolates, and a little-known source for gourmet cheese. Trips are customized to the interest of participants and always contain a few surprises.
La Jolla restaurants offer a wide variety of ethnic cuisines (think Moroccan, Indian, Japanese and the whole gamut of Mediterranean options), and Shira enjoys mixing it up. Guests enjoy hearty samples and wine pairings that range from Sushi to tapas to chocolate made on the premises.
Participants in her La Jolla Wine Tours wander off the beaten path and discover merchants and eateries on the side streets of the village – the places the locals enjoy and tourists rarely discover. Along the way, she shares her knowledge of La Jolla history as well as shopping tips, what’s on info, and her passion for our beautiful scenery.
Most tours are from 3 – 6 PM and guests often end up canceling their dinner reservations. Act fast and you can enjoy one of Shira’s food and wine walking tours for only $55, but she’s about to put the price up to $69.50 – with a 10% discount if you tell her you read about the tours on La Jolla Travel Information.
Here’s what one satisfied guest had to say: “Chocolate, wine, sushi, sake! I love La Jolla Wine Tours!”
La Jolla Wine Tours also offers excursions to San Diego County wineries in Escondido, Ramona, and San Diego.
And here’s a helpful tip: If you’re visiting San Diego and will be returning home by plane, you don’t have to worry about putting your wine purchase in your checked luggage. JetBag makes a sealable padded bag that absorbs up to 750 ml of liquid. If you use a JetBag, your clothes are protected even if the bottle breaks.
