To whet your appetite a bit, take a look below at 5 of the best wineries to tour in Temecula:
1. Bel Vino Winery
Situated on one of the highest points in Temecula Wine Country, Bel Vino Winery offers sweeping 360-degree views of the surrounding vineyards, valleys, and mountains. The 40-acre winery has been producing award-winning wines for over 20 years and has a current portfolio of 30-40 luscious offerings. Visitors are especially drawn to the rustic architecture, warmth, and charm of Bel Vino Winery, which aims to infuse its tours with the right balance of relaxed and educational. And if you visit on the weekend, you can take advantage of the gourmet comfort food served at the winery’s bistro.
2. Robert Renzoni
It’s no accident that visitors to Robert Renzoni Vineyards think they’ve stepped through a portal to Italy’s northern coast. The family-focused winery began crafting wines in the “old country” in 1886 and generously brought their family tradition and style to the Temecula Wine Country a decade ago. Robert Renzoni’s Tuscan Villa tasting room highlights the family’s Italian roots, featuring gorgeous architecture that’s as warm and inviting as it is impressive.
3. Callaway Winery
Beauty comes naturally in the Temecula Wine Country, but Callaway Winery aims to go beyond with vineyards that are as lovely as they are committed to honoring nature: insect plant habitats are planted between rows and nesting boxes for hawks and owls are nestled throughout the vineyards. When it comes to the wine, letting “nature be nature” has paid off, resulting in nearly 10 award-winning varieties available for tasting in Callaway’s beautiful tasting room with expansive views of the valley.
4. Longshadow Ranch
Family comes first at Longshadow Winery—each wine variety you taste during their tours is the result of six generations of winemaking expertise. The Old West theme carries on through the barn-style tasting room as well as the winery tours, which feature a carriage ride through the vineyards. Longshadow Ranch is known for their patient, conversational tour guides who would rather take their time introducing you to a select few wines than rushing you through their entire catalog.
5. Danza del Sol
If you’re looking for rustic ambiance and first-class hospitality, look no further than Danza del Sol Winery. It’s of the newer names in Temecula Wine Country, although the vineyards were planted by former owners over 40 years ago. Danza del Sol believes wine brings people together, which is why their tastings and tours match their easygoing Mediterranean style. The winery also features a gorgeous patio for picnics with views of the surrounding rolling hills.
