Counties represented: Imperial, San Diego
Alysha was born and raised in San Diego County in the citrus and avocado industry. After receiving her degree in viticulture and enology from the University of California, Davis, she returned to San Diego County to pursue a farming crop that used much less water than citrus or avocados. Now Alysha and her husband have their own wine label that produces 100 percent San Diego-grown and -made wines. She also assists her family with their vineyard management operations and is a viticulture instructor at the local community college. Alysha and her husband Chris enjoy being part of the foodie scene in Southern California and spending time with their dog, Rhone.
