We got there at 4:15 on Father's Day. They close at 5pm. She was closing up because it was slow. she talked us into a cup of sangria. It was delicious. WE found out from someone else in the town they don't even use their own wine for the sangria. It was still good but a little disappopinting knowing that.

Friendly staff, delicious wines in an open, un-rushed atmosphere. Eight dollars gets you a flight of five wines to sample.I highly recommend the sangria.

Been to this tasting room twice. The 1st time we loved it, bought a bottle of the 2011 Merlot (excellent wine). Loved the host, she was fun, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. One wine was not available because she said it wasn't ready. "We won't release a wine till its ready" I believe she said. The 2nd time (4 months later) I... More

My husband and I found this place by chance. Loved the friendly tasting room. Tasting was $7 for 5 pours and they were only pouring reds the day we went. Tried 4 of their reds and had sangria as our last pour. Sangria was delicious!!! Sebastian definitely added to our experience, he is the cutest guy! Cannot wait to go... More

Blue Door Winery is an intimate tasting room with hosts that are proud to show off their wine without any of the commercial pressure or cartoonish atmosphere that comes with other larger or corporate wineries. Everything about our visit was wonderful (wine, the company, atmosphere) - and what was originally going to be a quick stop on the way to... More

This fairly new winery is a gem! Merlot was sold out so I didn't taste it. The Rose and Primitivo wines were so tasty. Surprisingly, I preferred the Rose the most ( and I usually don't go for that choice of wine). Love the innate style and feel of this little winery. Watch out for Blue Door. Their wines are... More

I have been wine tasting all over San Diego County and Temecula. While I haven't tried EVERY winery out there, I have visited MANY! Based on my personal experience as an avid SoCal wine taster, this was one of my absolute FAVORITE places. I was blown away by the quality of the wine, and the honesty and passion evident in... More

A tiny, tiny winery, when I went, they only had three of their wines available. The couple who own and operate it are delightful and passionate about their craft and town they live in. But be careful, the wine is very, very, very good, you'll want to buy up every bottle they have!

The nice people at Menghini told us to try out the wine at the Blue Door and since it was right across the street from the Gold Rush Hotel where we were staying it worked out perfect. Nice and friendly owners and enjoyed the tasting.
