Temecula wineries

BHeading down to Temecula this weekend for a wedding. We have enough time to perhaps try one or two places. While, I’ve been to Temecula on a few occasions, and have yet to find some gems that I love. We generally drink cabs (and are members) of Napa wine clubs.
Previous Temecula stops:
South Coast
Wilson Creek
De Anza


Try Palumbo, Baily, and Wiens. Of the ones on your list I’d’ve recommended only Doffo. JMHO.

We are Ponte wine club members. Leoness is good, and has a nice restaurant. Wilson Creek is fun and happening - we enjoy it there but it can get busy.

We also like Danza del Sol and Mount Palomar. We went to Doffo a few months ago but didn’t care for their wines.

We had time to run over to Baily. We split a tasting, and while the wines were good…I’m still not sure I can get on the Temecula wine train. Thanks for the advice…this was much better than all the other wineries I’ve tried on previous trips!

The Temecula train is OK for a wine experience if you:

  1. Don’t have time to visit anything North of Ventura.
  2. Understand that it’s not going to be special compared with most of what’s in #1.
  3. Are on a bachelorette outing.
  4. Keep it in perspective… or are just looking to say you visited some California wineries.

The few wineries that are decent to good can make for a nice time if you select well.
