Maybe we were so used to Napa and Sonoma, but this place was a madhouse. The line just to pay was 15 minutes and then you received your drink tickets to get 5 tastings for $20.00. The wine was good, but the noise and over crowding made for a less than enjoyable experience. I would not ever go again on... More

Worth it! Stopped for lunch (some delicious items on the menu for sure) and experienced some of their best wines which I have found to be some of my favorites! It can be busy but we must have arrived there early enough to avoid any indication of such. Or perhaps the time of year (early March) was just ideal for... More

Wines are good, grounds are beautiful, lots of seating areas outside, and one of the best selection of gifts in their gift shop. Have to try the almond champagne as well as the orange champagne.

Wine servers were cordial and generous. Busy. Wine wonderful. Stopped at Temecula Visitor Center for 2 for 1 tasting coupon. Well worth the cost. Wine was excellent.

This is among the most charming wineries I've ever been to. It is larger in size than other wineries, but so endearing. A huge family photo hangs at the bar and you can see family members milling about and socializing with the patrons. The dogs (in the photo) are also walking about the tasting room and it made me feel... More

Wilson provides a wide range of products to sample - 5 for $15 including their bubbly. They have some unusual cuvees - flavored with almond or orange. We also liked their Syrah. Note to almond cuvee fans - we purchased a bottle of the almond but found it at a local Costco for almost 1/2 the winery price.

Man...talk about a let down. Rated #1 winery in the area on tripadvisor. Our server treated us like he was doing us a favour. And the wine was okay but no discussion of the winery, it's history or the wines. He actually left us for like 5 minutes to ring someone up on a purchase when he could have directed... More

What a terrific winery; beats all others in the area, and equal to some of the best in Northern California. Restaurant was outstanding and the manor was a great experience.

Spent the afternoon in Temecula and had time to pick 1 winery to visit and chose Wilson Creek based on others reviews. While the grounds are beautiful, lunch was nothing special and service not so great. Server forgot one of our drinks and the side to Cuban sandwich was wrong, acknowledged as wrong, with assurance the right one would be... More

We always have a great time at Wilson Creek. They make you feel like family. Even on the weekends, when it can be really busy, they make you feel at home. We went to the restaurant in the cellar room last week. It was beautiful. I recommend bringing a sweater. I think they are keeping it cool for the wine... More
