Away from the valley for 4years. Back for a visit today and found this beautiful place. Loved all the wines and had a great guide Mike. Bought a bottle of the cowbell for later. Will definitely return on my next visit. More

Welcome back! Thank you for stopping by and for the great review! Remember, everything is better with More Cowbell!
A very expensive tasting, considering the tasting shack and quantity poured for tasting. For our group of six, also a very slow tasting, as not that much wine to taste, and long intervals...
Very different and very expensive wines, also, so the old truth: asking high prices is not crazy, paying is...
A clear 'Tripadvisor disappointment', as no match for the rating.
Thank you for stopping by! We appreciate your feedback and understand that everyone's tastes are different. One of the great things about what we do is that every wine is as unique as the winery offering it, and different is right where we like to be! Happy tasting!
This place is located off the main road and up a hill just a bit. This is a casual setting, but not really inviting. The tasting area is a lean to shack outside, which some would say rustic, but I would say, built in a weekend. They have some random patio furniture set around on a small incline which is not the most comfortable way to sit with you chair pitched forward. Restrooms are porta pots. There are some tables and the view is somewhat nice. Limited shade, which can be an issue on hot sunny days. The wines or fine, but not exceptional with all but one wine over $60 with many in the +$75 to $100 range. Tasting was $20 for 5 pours. Not sure if the price gets credited if you buy a bottle. They show you the non club and club price on the Menu which highlights how much profit they have baked into the non club price. There are signs asking guests to please post positive reviews, hence, they have the top rating in the area. VERY casual place with expensive reds. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable, but upon leaving not really a place for me.
Thank you for stopping by! We understand that our outdoor and casual feel isn't for everyone and appreciate your honesty. Where we certainly love for people to check in and share their experiences and photos with us, it is not our practice to solicit positive reviews. If this happened to you, please let us know. Like our wine making process, we strive for an open, honest conversation about what we do and how it's done.
don't want to write a review because many people will visit here. but i can't be quiet. it's a real hidden gem. my sanctuary, away from tourist bus. small tasting area on the hill but there is huge world of wine. The hosts' knowledge helped me to enjoy. high % but it is not hard to taste (I'm not specialist for wine yet). I'm happy to stop by here that was not our plan, we came here because a winery next of this was closed on the day. the best view in Temecula, too.
Thank you for the visit! We look forward to tasting with you again soon!
They make some of the best wines in the Valley. The place is rather rustic. The vineyard has some unique properties that the winemaker understands to exploit. If you already know something about winemaking and you have the chance to meet the winemaker/owner, be prepared to have the experience of your life.
Thank you for the great review! We look forward to seeingyou again soon!
They have an outdoor tasting area here, which was pleasant in March but might be less so if it is very hot or cold. For me they make the best Zin in the valley here, and they also have a great blend called Commonwealth. Our host Mike was very informative.
A great tasting experience.
Thank you for stopping by! We'll pass your kind words on to Micole!
