Attention Bubbleheads… Wilson Creek Winery and Vineyards is the perfect place to kickstart your weekend wine warrior tasting! Wilson Creek Winery and Vineyards features five sparkling wines (you know we can’t call them Champagne!), with the Almond Sparkling Wine topping the wine list. Personally, I prefer the Peach Bellini Sparkling Wine, with hints of peach, which is not as sweet or the Orange Mimosa Sparkling Wine, which combines the Almond Sparkling Wine with the essence of orange. There’s even a Sparking Sangria Wine, naturally fermented in the Southern Mediterranean style, tasting of red berry, pomegranate, lemon and blood orange. Refreshing and delightful!
Besides the acclaimed Sparkling Wines, Wilson Creek Winery produces a noteworthy 2010 Mouvedre, tasting of dried cherry, with a wisp of smoke and cedar, an intriguing 2012 White Cabernet Sauvignon, elegantly handcrafted floral undertones with a hint of mint and also a classic 2012 Muscat Canelli, a chilled glass of perfection, slightly dry and not overly sweet.
Touted as the having the friendliest tasting room staff in the Temecula Valley, Wilson Creek Winery and Vineyards is the epitome of a family affair, and even includes five golden retrievers! The gift shop is one of the finest in Temecula WIne Country with many unique and fanciful gifts for the oenophiles on your gift list.
Stroll around the vast grounds or enjoy a leisurely walk through the vineyards or cozy up to a patio table in the courtyard and listen to the phenomenal local musical talent. Wilson Creek Winery and Vineyards hosts all types of events, from weddings to corporate events and offers first-class lodging accommodations at the Wilson Creek Manor. For a real treat, check out the on-site restaurant, The Creekside Grille, for the Bubble Brunch Buffet, offered every Sunday. www.wilsoncreekwinery.com
