Our goal is the same today as it was in 1969, to create exceptional wines and an unforgettable wine tasting experience.

Wine tastings are available on a first-come first-served basis in our famous “Cava di Vino.”

Our Wines

The vineyards were planted in 1969, and we began making our own wines in 1975. We were the second winery in the region.

We currently have 54 acres of estate vineyards and 17 different wine grape varieties.

Temecula Valley’s soils consist of decomposed granite in origin, which makes it mineral rich and drain well, but nutrient poor. This allows us to stress the vines and have more control over the nutrients they get which in turn, yields more flavorful fruit although in smaller quantities.

Thanks to Temecula Valley’s unique climate, long hot days meet cool night temperatures, we can grow some of the more challenging varietals that have trouble ripening properly in northern climates. The cool evenings help the fruit maintain appropriate acid levels to achieve quality wine. We recently planted a large block of Aglianico and Nero d’Avola, varietals best known to Sicily. To note, our climate is more like North Africa than France.

Often, we get asked the question, “What is your best/favorite wine?” As the winemaker, I approach each wine we produce as it is my favorite as each is unique to itself.

The one honorable mention is our Cream Sherry. Our Cream Sherry is aged in an outdoor, 50-year-old solera. Bottling a 50-year-old bottle of sherry is definitely “a big deal”. This sherry transcends cultures and taste preferences. To those who say, “but I don’t like sherry”, I guess you haven’t tried ours.
