If you love red wine in a very relaxed setting this is the place. You can either be served inside at the bar or they will come to your table to serve you. Chapin has a very quiet and relaxing atmosphere and the staff are super friendly. They are known for their reds but do have very nice whites too!

Nice homestead conversion for tasting, dining and purchasing. It's a quaint and pleasant vineyard with very nice decor and ambiance. Pours were on the smaller scale of the dozen places visited.

We were greeted as we walked into the tasting room and given the option to taste at the tasting bar or outside, seated at our own table, on the covered patio. We opted to taste outside. The lady who poured our samples could not have been nicer. Unfortunately, we didn't care for the wines but we had a relaxing time... More

Not your typical Temecula large wine tasting venue. Chapin has a more intimate atmosphere and offers great wines. It's farther down the road but worth the extra miles.

Expensive but delicious wine tasting. The lead man behind the bar - Leroy I think was his name - is a hoot and extremely knowledgable about this family's vineyard and winery. They have a large assortment of wines - reds, roses, whites, sweet, dry, sparkling, etc. They all struck me as expertly made. $15 gets you a tasting for 5... More

We just love this quaint family owned vineyard with great wines and a relaxed atmosphere and wonderful service. Where else can you go and shake hands with the owner as you walk in?

My husband and adult daughter stopped at this winery and sat on the patio with a glass of wine after a long day of hiking at Joshua Tree. The patio was a great place to sit and look out at the beautiful vineyards. Our server was personable and helpful. .

Stopped by on a Monday afternoon after visiting some of the less personable wineries in the area. Loved sitting on the patio with a class of their great red wine. Our server was very helpful and attentive. Inside the wine tasting room was a cooler with some food available for purchase. The patio features great views of the vineyard The... More

My wife and I stopped by last Sunday to pick up a few bottles. We are now in the wine club. Steve Chapin, the owner was very kind and spent time educating us on his wines and the staff was very pleasant. Although a warm day we found the patio very relaxing and comfortable. Will be back soon.

Pleasantly surprised. Not like any other winery. Having the opportunity to do tastings out on their large patio/porch sitting, while overlooking the vineyard made it different from all the others. Very relaxing and beautiful. We found Jana to be very accommodating to us, as well as all her guests. She was knowledgeable, helpful and fun. We enjoyed this experience so... More
