So, we were at some spectacular wineries ahead of time so this one wasn't a stellar place. It was busy inside so we went to the outside bar. They guy there seemed to be inconvenienced by us no matter how nice we tried to be. Good wine, so so service, all good since we were on vacation.

After an awful lunch at Pinnacle, the winery's restaurant, we went to the tasing room at Falkner winery. There was no other people there. We were a party of 11 and the hostess asked us if we had a reservation. A reservation? They should be welcoming us in since there was no one else there. She definitely had attitude and... More

Visited this winery due to a recommendation by another person who raved about their restaurant "Pinnacle". Well we didnt get a chance to eat at the restaurant due to not having a reservation and the waiting list to eat on the weekend being months long. We decided to taste the wines and we were not disappointed. We were helped by... More

We randomly chose Falkner Winery on our visit to the Temecula Valley wine country (with a 2 for 1 coupon from the visitors center in Temecula). The winery sits on a hilltop, just off the main thoroughfare Rancho California. For $15 we got six wine samplings for each of us, plus a free souvenir wine goblet, and two $5 coupons... More

Stopped by for a quick tasting without any previous knowledge of Faulkner. A few tastes later and we were hooked. Several of the wines were good, but the Luscious Lips Red is FANTASTIC and we not only bought a few bottles but also signed up for the club. Teri, our Wine-Giver-Person (???), was the nicest WGP we've ever had... and... More

Beautiful view, luscious wine, great staff and nice music always. Great selection of the reds we prefer but nice whites are available so we can come with friends who like whites. Staff are knowledgable about area and wines. We love the restaurant but have not tried the bbq while listening to the music. Bbq looks very tasty but I rather... More

Definitely one of the best place to dine in the Temacula. The views are great, the restaurant is very nice, clean and spacious. We had lunch there about 2 weeks ago and the food was truly delicious : ahi tuna salad wraps with mango sauce, the halibut was very good with the tapenade (a bit overcooked, but no drama) and...

We had a really nice wine tour and tasting with Tammy as our guide. She was able to rearrange our schedule to do the tour first since we were early for lunch. That worked out perfectly. She was very friendly and knowledgable. We took our time and she answered all of our questions and then made some great suggestions for... More

The cellar was perfectly set up to receive and welcome the large group we had. The host greeted every member and answered any questions about the winery.The staff maintained the room clean and free of any empty glasses. When the time came to move to the restaurant, the seating was elegantly displayed and the room was comfortable for the warm... More
