View Winery Photos Slideshow:
Nestled at the end of Rancho California Road in Temecula Valley lies our family estate vineyard and winery. When the Wilson family acquired a 20-acre winery in 1996, our intentions were simple. We 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 our family was Gerry and Rosie Wilson's attempts to make dandelion and rhubarb wine in their basement in Minnesota!
We've come quite a long way....
Home of the famous Almond Champagne®, the winery has garnered numerous prestigious international wine awards and Gerry is proud that Wilson Creek is unofficially the official winery of many Navy ships, including eight aircraft carriers.
The entire family is still involved. You can feel the energy and personal touch when you visit 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, the award winning Decadencia® Chocolate Dessert Wine is served in an edible chocolate shot glass for an extra special touch.
If you have visited the winery, then you have seen the fabulous pavilion and gazebo and jazz stage. Weddings
are our specialty, and we have had hundreds of amazing weddings. Plan your next private event
with us or to attend an upcoming winery event
. Be sure to join our Wine Club
to begin enjoying the special privileges of being part of our extended family.
