Like the other reviewers have mentioned, there is nothing fancy about Foot Path winery and the winemaker/owner/host isn't much for conversation. I also tried to talk with him a bit, but he was having no part of it.

The wines were pretty good and we ended up buying four bottles. I think the prices are bit high, but it is what it is.

One note to mention. This is a red wine only winery.

It was a little hard finding this place and when we got there it was basically in a trailer. We mentioned this to someone else at a different winery and they said they loved that, because the could light up a cigar and relax and chill without expectations. I immediately got the idea of 2 buck chuck and a pregnant chick in cutoff jean shorts and a bikini top carrying a kid in each arm and some moonshine. Not the idea of an actual winery. When we walked inside there was no one there, not even anyone working, we roamed around a little thinking this could end up like a scene from texas chainsaw massacre, when the person working there popped through a back exit area from smoking a cigarette and seemed a little shocked anyone showed up to taste the wine. We stayed for the tasting and I would have given this a 1 star rating but the wine was actually palatable. Not the best wines in temecula by far but they were drinkable. The prices were high considering how run down the place looked though.

Great red wine; best we had from
the wineries we visited. Very down to earth atmosphere but lacks the views of other wineries.

I don't mind a little hole in the wall winery at all.......But I was visiting from Canada and all he could tell me was how bad Canadians are at making wine and how Okanagan wines are horrible. I am from the Okanagan and love BC wines as much if not more than imported wines from around the world! I could not believe how rude he was when we stopped in. I don't like red wine at all but was willing to try some....until the owner opened his mouth and started bashing my country and where I came from......not exactly something anyone wants to hear when visiting a very beautiful city like Temecula, considering all the other wineries around him are much nicer and friendlier than his. Will never go back and and wouldn't recommend this winery to anyone.......especially Canadians apparently.

Don't waste your gas. All of the wine was either oxidized or on the verge of turning. If you like bad fortified wines and don't mind chewing huge chunks of sediment, this is the place for you. Not to mention the horse manure smell wafting through the hot, stuff and filthy barn (tasting room). Dean was rude and frankly unpleasant to be around. Corona the dog was the highlight of this stop. I agree with the other reviewer, the other wineries should vote this place shut down.

"no frills" is an understatement. In an old garage. Filthy. The owner was grumpy and seemed annoyed that we came to taste his wines.

This place is an embarrassment to the entire Temecula Valley wineries. The other "for real" wineries should shut this place down. Brown wine, terrible taste.. at least the dog was nice.

Formerly, Foote Print winery.

Here you will find no manicured lawn, no idyllic water fountain, no designer architecture, and not even asphalt in the parking. So you're not here for sightseeing. Several equines are corralled next to a small barn that is part tasting room, part farmer's market, and barrel storage.

But you will find a medium-bodied Malbec with the Temecula appellation, a rather interesting, late-harvest 2008 Zin (simultaneously saccharine and hot, 16.6% alcohol!), a decent Zin-Syrah, and a very nice 100% Petit Verdot. $10 for 6 tastes with a logo glass.

A straight-shooting, pipe-smoking fellow, Deane is the winemaker and owner, and he is frank and will tell you (if you ask) the good and not-so-good like it is.

So the wife and I stumbled upon this place while looking for places off the beaten path, and while the place looked more like a residence with a barn, we found it nice and quaint. So we went for the tasting and let me tell you, the wine did not disappoint. I consider myself very picky when it comes to wine, and have even tasted some from bigger wineries that were not quite to my taste bud's liking. The first taste was filled with flavor and the rest of the wines were amazing. I loved the wine so much that I joined the Club. When I looked at the yelp reviews later and saw how bad some of them were, I was pretty shocked. The owner is definitely gruff but super likable, and more importantly, a small business owner trying to make a living. My advice, get to know the owner, don't judge a book by its cover, and enjoy the wine, it's worth it, trust me. We can't wait to come back again and again.

We travel to California every year to taste wine. We love small vineyards and low key tasting rooms. However, this was truly awful. I am not sure how this place stays in business. The wine was undrinkable. Tasted corked. Thin, acidic, odd coloring (orangey brown with chunks of sediment and cork) and no resemblance to what wine should taste like. I can not find words to adequately describe how bad it was. Owner and tasting room smelled like smoke/cigar. Tasting room a mess. This was the worst wine we have ever tasted in California, and we’ve tasted a lot of wine here!! Save your money and go elsewhere! So many wonderful vineyards in this area. Sadly, this was not one of them.
