Wilson Creek Winery

Nestled at the end of Rancho California Road in Temecula Valley lies their family estate vineyard and winery. Hitching rails are located over the hill at the far end of the main parking lot. It’s quite a distance from the winery, so someone should monitor the horses that are tied. For now you may toss manure into the open field nearby or take it home in your horse trailer, as parking is available for rigs.

Open Daily from 10am – 5pm. Phone: 951-699-WINE (9463)
