The wine tasting is not cheap, and they were decent. I would not say awesome, just decent. The tasting room was crowded, and the servers were not interested in chatting. I would not recommend buying the wine at the shop - i found MANY of the same for cheaper at the grocery stores in the area. The outside area is quite beautiful, but inside was like a zoo.

The reason this winery is running a great deal on Groupon is because they are under construction. My vineyard view villa faces an ugly unfinished 7 story building. And that view comes with the sound of a grinding cement mixer outside my window (Villa 2303). I don't deny anyone the right to better their property or expand, but 1) Don't run a groupon during this time, it's just cheap and mean and 2) Tell me when I book so I have the option not to be subjected to this. I called and complained and got a free breakfast, but would rather have peace and quiet. I wish I could attach an audio file so you all could hear how loud it is.

Room Tip: Don't believe the "vineyard view".

This is a lovely place to spend a weekend. Our king villa was cozy and quiet, the grounds were beautiful and the service was excellent. Even if you're not a big wine taster, it's worth a trip for the hotel itself. We were able to walk through the vineyards and orange groves with a beautiful scenic vista of Temecula. The stay includes a free bottle of wine in your room. We're not big red wine drinkers, so we asked to have ours exchanged for white. No problem! A busboy delivered a new bottle within half an hour. The hot water could have been hotter and the bath towels a little bigger, but those were my only complaints, and minor ones at that!

Room Tip: All the rooms have private patios with hedges surrounding them. We had a vineyard view; it was lovel...

My wife and I stayed Friday through Sunday and had an incredible time. The resort is beautiful, the wine tasting was great. We did a private tour of the facility, got to meet one of the wine makers and tasted some really good wine. (They really do a nice job on the Red Wine) we bought close to two cases. Our room or Villa was spacious with a private patio that overlooked a small vineyard. My wife was having coffee out on the patio on Saturday morning and was delighted to see the Hot Air Balloons floating over the patio. The room it self, was nicely apppointed, roman style jacuzzi tub for two and separate shower, comfortable king size bed, refrigeration, and a bottle of their Syrah compliments of the hotel. Dining was just as good at the Vineyard Rose, We ate dinner their two nights in a row, and breakfast before we left Sunday. Highly recommended, and we shall return.

Room Tip: They are called Villas, nicely appointed, private patio and within walking distance to the wine tast...

We stayed at the Resort in 11/2012 and the hotel is the best in Temecula. The Villas are spacious and the food at the hotel is wonderful. The wine there is also very good and they have won several awards for there wines. We also went to a few winery tours in the area which was also very informative. Temecula Old Town is always a good way to walk around and have a bite to eat. This was a great weekend trip!

South Coast Winery is a great way to relax and spend a few days. Just got back from a sales retreat there and the property is very nice. All of the rooms are "villa" style so you don't have to worry about noisy neighbors above you. Grounds are well kept and there is a nice pool and a fitness center. If there is a downside, it is that you are inTemecula. Temecula is nice but it is not the same as Santa Barbara or Nappa. That being said, you can still find some nice wine tasting (make sure to visit Brier Winery. The menu at the restaurant is a bit limiting and when I asked for a burger they couldn't do it. But there is an In-n-Out right down the street. All in all I would bring the wife there for a weekend getaway in the future. Probably not the kids.

My husband and I, stayed in a King Villa for one night in October. The rooms are huge, with small refrigerator, fireplace, small patio , huge bathroom with jaccuzi tub, and sitting area. THe resort is beautifully maintained..Customer service was top notch..Just wish we could have stayed longer. Would highly recommend the balloon package for a special once in a life time memory..We did eat at the restaurant, very nice..food is good..not great, and the service was excellent. The views from your villa are breath taking..Hope to go back..!!
