Wilson Creek Winery

At the end of Rancho California Road in Temecula Valley lies the family estate of Wilson Creek Winery, home of their famous Almond Champagne®. When the Wilson family acquired a 20-acre winery in 1996, their intentions were simple. They wanted to run a fun, family business producing great wines from the conducive climate and soil of the Temecula Valley. In fact, the only previous winemaking experience in in their family was Gerry and Rosie Wilson’s attempts to make dandelion and rhubarb wine in their basement in Minnesota!

Have they come along way, named 2010 Gold Business of the year! The entire family is still involved. You can feel the energy and personal touch when you arrive at the large tasting room, and visit with the family members that are always on the property. The ambience of Wilson Creek continues to be very warm and welcoming. Among the many guests favorites, is the award winning Decadencia® Chocolate Port, served in an edible chocolate shot glass for an extra special touch. Look for the volleyball mounted above the bar decorated like Wilson, Tom Hank’s personified volleyball friend from the movie Castaway. The Wilson volleyball seemed to sum up the ambiance at Wilson Creek winery; good wines and sophistication, but with a touch of quirkiness.

Wilson Creek Winery is warm and friendly, comfortable yet exhilarating, simple yet elegant, all inspirations from the Estate wines, vineyards and Mount Palomar in the distance, highlights Creekside Grille, picnic areas, Gift Shop, and Champagne Lounge. The Thornton Winery Tasting Room is open 7 Days a Week from 10am – 5pm.

You will have three hours to spend exploring the vineyard with a tour, wine tasting, a gourmet lunch or picnic. There is live entertainment Saturday’s and Sunday’s for you to enjoy. The perfect tour for any occasion.
