Beautiful views with a Board Head Deli on site. The pizza is delicious and the wines are great. Italian style varietals and 100% estate grown. Definitely need to visit and take a seat on the wooden Adirondack chairs!

We had about an hour with tasting and food/wine pairing. The staff was friendly and informative. Hard to hear the speaker in a large room when they described the vintages. It was enjoyable and the wine was good, but not great.

A small place, small prices, and big views with great atmosphere. Sandwiches were fresh and rightly priced. Serving staff were all excellent. Will come back again.

Some of the best reds in Temecula. They have a nice seating / picnic area outside, but if it's cool, there is lots of space inside too. It's a great place to get a glass (free for club members), find a nice seat and enjoy...More

My sister and brother-in-law have stopped at this winery during the past visits to Temecula. They promised that it would be worth the stop. I loved the small vineyard feel as well as several of the wines. I did not feel rushed during our wine...More
