After having served as a firefighter in Rancho Mission Viejo for several years, Josh Frisby figured the area’s hills would make a good backdrop for wine tastings and craft beer events. So when he noticed a location open for lease in the community’s new industrial business center, Frisby got to work opening his third branded wine and beer location there.

Frisby Winery & Brewing officially opened in Los Patrones Summit during the last weekend of June. The winery is one of several new businesses gradually opening in the business center, which RMV officials hope will become an economic and social destination for residents of the master-planned community.

“I was one of the first tenants to lease in there,” Frisby said. “I’m very excited to be part of the early phases of what’s going to be a 10- to 15-year buildout.”
