“Make Wilson Creek Winery your first stop - you may never leave!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2011

We went with friends on a limo with an afternoon of planned of wine tasting. Wilson Creek Winery was our first and only stop of the day - absolutely fantastic. The winery is absolutely stunning rivaled only by their incredible wine tasting portfolio and their friendly and knowledgeable staff. There are more than enough tasting stations to get the personal attention you'd expect from a best in class winery. We were tempted by their reserve wines and were treated to a delectable dessert wine served in decadent chocolate mini shot glasses - sip and nibble. Once near the end - you pour a splash of Almond champagne and finish it off - wickedly good.

We finished off our wine tasting and a tour of the grounds with a wonderful late lunch at their Creekside Grille! No one in our party of 10 was disappointed - there was something for everyone!

When visiting Temecula for a day of wine tasting, definitely make Wilson Creek Winery your first stop - it may well be your only stop!

“Another Spot for a Daycation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2011

After joining a wine tour led by John, a sommelier in Wilson Creek Winery and Vineyards on July 16, my husband and I signed up for the wine club. The winery is relatively small but we were caught by their story about how the business began and the unceasing progress that they employ. They didn't shrivel like grapes in spite of all the sweltering challenges that they have gone through. It is a tale of perseverance and courage.

The restaurant, Creekside Grille, also serves delicious calamari and seasonal fish that's grilled to perfection. I like the free bread that comes with some sort of marinara dip. That was a savory surprise! Of course, you cannot miss the almond champagne. Coming to this place is so wonderful and it's even pretty close to San Diego and LA.

We received yesterday, 8/15, our share from the wine club: 2009 Estate Chardonnay, 2007 Family Meritage (red), and my favorite Almond Champagne. They ship wines to club members every other month. Cheers!

“Beautiful inside and out.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2011

Had a great time at this winery. Really enjoyed their new Mimmosa champagne and their Almond champagne and I usually don't care for champagne. After the tastings we enjoyed a yummy lunch outside under the patio with live music. Highly recommend.

“Favorite Champagne”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2011

Wilson Creek's almond champagne is my absolute favorite. It was a little crowded but we still had a good time. I would say that my second favorite would be the white cabernet.
