Crowded, over rated on their wines. If the wines are so good, they wouldn't have to display awards. The really great wineries in Temecula don't! Restaurant is good, winery provides full experience with accomodations, restaurant, spa. Instead try Ponte and Wiens right next door or go to Leonese.

The winery itself is beautiful. tons of flowers and well maintained spaces. Inside is very clean, large open space with a great feel. The walls are practically collapsing from all of their wine awards!

Our server was Jordan. He really went above and beyond to make our tasting a great experience. He took us on a tour of the menu, was the only server of the 3 wineries we went to that day who listened to my requests and actually understood what I meant (ie. when I asked for a dark, earthy, big red he gave me one as opposed to something with zinfandel in it...)

when he found out it was my girlfriends birthday he opened up a really great bottle of cab sauv and took us through the process of coating the glass and maybe gave us one or two refills.

all in all a great experience!

If you like a more "commercial" and not so cozy atmosphere, then this is the place for you. The place is big and a bit on the overpriced side of things. The spa is way overpriced as well.

This is a tourist trap. Our server was nasty. The wine is poor. Continue down the street to Wiems, where the red wine is execellent!

This spring the winery is in full bloom and the aroma of the Wisteria over the canapy to the entrance is wonderful.
