Mazzocco Vineyards

We tasted some exceptional wine here and the customer service was great here. We were able to enjoy our tasting on their beautiful ground outside while snacking on some really nice cheeses, meats, and crackers that we brought along with us. They poured us some wines that were Members Only wines that we really fell in love with.

Baily WInery

Decor at Baily Winery is fun with an amusing assortment of gargoyle and medieval statuary scattered about the very pleasant grounds. We ate on the lovely patio (Carols) with refreshing breezes and the sounds of wind chimes. It was a spectacularly sparkling day and the patio was just delightful. Cost is $25.00 (includes souvenir logo wine glass and $10.00 credit toward wine purchase, one credit per bottle).

Main Tasting Room is located at 33440 La Serena Way, right on Rancho California Road, the Temecula Wine Country’s major thoroughfare.

Estate Tasting Room is located at our production facility at 36150 Pauba Road. 

Carol’s Restaurant
Carol’s is located at the Main Tasting Room and is open for lunch Friday through Sunday.

Hanna Winery

Hanna Winery was founded in 1985 by Dr. Elias Hanna, a world-renowned cardiac surgeon, who was eager to find a place in the country to continue the farming heritage of his upbringing in Syria. In the 1970s he realized his dream with the purchase of 12 acres in the Russian River Valley. Dr. Hanna's oldest daughter Christine now runs the winery. Great location, excellent views and a really nice and modern tasting room. Hanna makes a wide variety of wines and I was taken by their Elias Pinot Noir.

Alhona Vineyards

In keeping with old world tradition, our wines are similarly handcrafted in small batches. Grapes are carefully sorted to ensure only the finest of fruit and then placed in small 450 gallon, stainless steel fermenting tanks. Once fermented the wine is transferred to small oak barrels where it will age from 18 to 24 months. After bottling, the wine will remain in our cellar for a minimum of 12 months before it’s release. Our objective is to produce the finest artisan wine possible. No public tasting room

Lucchesi Vineyards & Winery

he Lucchesi family origins lie in Provincia Di Lucca, Toscana, and we are the direct descendents from the civilizations of the Etruscans, the native culture of northwestern/central Italy, and first civilization of Italy and the Romans.I remember their Barbera from last fall being excellent, but when I went in last they only offered the "general, grow everywhere" wines, such as Merlot, Carbernet and Syrah. In my opinion the more exotic grapes do better in Nevada County and have a more unique taste.

Silverado Vineyards

This is a scenic winery with nice views and good wine. You can almost miss the road up the hill to the winery - as the winery is set on the hill.
Nice wine sampling - Go for a wine tasting; be sure to soak in the view.

Stryker Sonoma Winery

Great wine, amazing staff and wonderful venue. I highly recommend you visit Stryker Sonoma winery. Beautiful views from the property and from inside the north-facing tasting room, which is enclosed by large windows. Friendly, knowledgeable staff, they are not pushy but are very generous.

Coyote Crest Vineyards & Winery

Coyote Crest Vineyards & Winery takes a very labor intensive approach to their winemaking, but this effort is apparent when you taste the wine. The production facilities use gravity rather than pumps to minimize intervention. Additionally, all of the wines are hand punched 3 times a day during fermentation. Phil and Marilyn Cool are the owners of Coyote Crest. In 1985, they purchased 32 acres of undeveloped land. They have since planted many acres of quality vineyards.

Milliaire Winery

The girl that poured for us was the single most welcoming and knowledgeable tasting room employee we dealt with that day. She was interested in what we were looking for but gently encouraged us to try some other wines they had available without being pushy.Most of all when you walk out of the winery you come away with such a great experience.

Burgess Cellars

Burgess is a fantastic local independent winery that puts out some amazing wines without the backing of the majors that most of the more well-known wineries in the area have. Their wines are definitely worth seeking out and asking for. I'm sure you will be most pleasantly surprised.
