Charlie & Echo is one of the original natural wineries based in San Diego.

All grapes are sourced from local vineyards practicing organic farming. Once the grapes get to the winery, they are spontaneously fermented, and nearly all wines are unfiltered, and none see the inside of a new barrel.

In addition to their diligence in low-invention winemaking, Charlie & Echo is a carbon-positive winery and gives 1% to The Planet.
