If you're looking for an experience to appreciate the cultivation and history of the wine you're drinking, you will find it here with Jim! Every sip you take is full of appreciation with the land we step in Temecula. His passion is projected in every word shared and in his knowledge of the art in the making of wine. Our recent wedding anniversary trip to Falkner Winery was phenomenal to say the least! Our wine expert Jim has been a Temecula Valley resident for over a decade and it shows. He took the time to give us the intricate details of all our wine tastings and even gave his vast knowledge of some of the fascinating history of this beautiful valley. We extensively enjoyed our conversation with him and are lucky to have met him. Thank you Jim...see you sooner than later! You are an asset to Faulkner Winery. We will definitely be going back because of you!

Excellent service and beautiful view from their hilltop but the $30 tasting fee is way to high along with the $80 price per bottle for wine that should sell for $30 to $40 compared to Wien's or Marice Carrie acroß the road. The only way to make up for the tasting fee for the group is to become a member and apply it to the purchase of 3 discounted bottles with a second 3 bottle in the future. This may be why their fee is so high.

Met some girlfriends here for a private tasting. Haven't been here in sooo many years. Barrel room is very nice and quaint. Service was fantastic, thank you Holly😘enjoyed a flight of whites only and was pleasantly surprised that I enjoyed all if them. Definitely will be going here again. FYI: they don't have an actual tasting room now due to a fire in the building so be prepared to be outside.

Reggie was a fantastic host during our wine tasting last Saturday. They have excellent wines and at a great price! I'm from Wisconsin and are having multiple bottles shipped. I can't wait to receive my wines and share them with my wine club friends here.

Falkner Winery is our favorite winery in Temecula. It is in the heart of Temecula and is very large. There is also an eatery on the property.

The entire space is just so beautiful. It does not matter if you don't drink wine, it is a site to see, and you can get a bottle for a friend.

The service is so kind and sweet. You can go into the winery and try some wines or you can take a tour. You can have lunch at the Pinnacle restaurant located on the property of just have snacks. There are places to sit in the shade and the whole experience is quite relaxing.

Falkner Winery is one of the premier wineries in Temecula. The hill-top vistas are stunning and what a view you will have. Falkner Winery's flagship wine is the award-winning Amante Super Tuscan blend. It is amazing. They also have Viognier, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Syrah. The Syrah is great.

Now, it can get crowded during tourist season, but the place is big so you will be fine.

What I really love is the knowledge of the staff. They know everything about their wine and the entire region. They give great advice.

You will love this place.

It was good up until the groom and his bride discovered that their wedding gifts/card box was missing some gifts!! They found out that they had been stolen by the staff working their wedding reception!! And on top of that, when it got reported to their management, they added insult to injury by making discriminatory and derogatory comments VIA EMAIL!! What supposed "nice and luxurious" establishment does that?!?! I really hope they get their due justice!!!

I never write reviews- good or bad. You can check my status on Yelp, I'm a noob. But while doing research for my upcoming wedding reception, Falkner Winery gave me a reason. I've lost count of the number of venues that I have called regarding pricing and so forth, and never have I encountered such a rude and unaccommodating event coordinator. Worst bit, it was the owner. As soon as I stated my venue/catering budget of $10k for 200 people, it was laughed at and I was told I'm wasting my time- that no winery that she's aware of could work with that. No "I'll see what I can do", or "That might be tough, but here are some options", or even "I'm sorry but... have you considered...?" Not even her asking if there was any wiggle room on our end- would I have been willing to spend more if they had shown willingness to work with us? Gladly. However, they just lost our business period. Sad since we are locals, who love wine country as well as most of our guests. Guess we know where we are never going back to or recommending.

Poor form, Falkner. Take a class on professionalism.

This winery used to be good but then they let in others and they ruined it. Problem is that the new people thought they should have a mediocre restaurant attached to the winery and focus more on the mediocre restaurant than the winery. The reason people are in the area, is for the wine, not for your crappy restaurant.
This is the reason why Temecula used to have good wine and now they have so so wine because the winery owners think you need to pump as much money as you can into the facade and very little into winemaking. These places are good for drunks, but bad for people who really enjoy wine.

We six went to Falkner Winery on Sunday 9/12/10. I had never visited a winery in Temecula before Sunday. We decided to begin our wine tasting day there and then move on to other wineries like we do in Napa. We loved the place so much, we stayed the day. Sunday is jazz music day. There was an alto sax player with his own back up recordings to support him. He pulled it off. He was fantastic. The wine sampled between the reds and whites were amazing. Even the port was perfect. Not a bit syrupy.
Andy, our wine pourer was friendly and you could tell he loved the wine and people he was serving. Falkner also offered a Sunday barbeque and it was also really good. We took advantage of 2 for 1 tasting coupons online and it was a great bargain. So there we sat from about 12:00 to 3:00 sampling, eating, sharing a few bottles that we had purchased and loving the view on the mountain side. There were plenty of benches, tables and chairs in the grass area that were also very conveniently positioned near the outside tasting bar, music and barbeque. Falkner is highly recommended. Enjoy.

Attended an outside wedding. The scenery was great, The food and service was horrible. The food in the buffet had little taste and they were very slow in keeping the trays with food. Many guests had little to eat because they ran out of food! The bartender was rude and the line to the bar was always long (there should have been another bartender for 150 guests). I would not recommend this place to anyone!
