    Views, very busy
    We were here Memorial weekend so VERY busy. Lots of parking but they have golf cart type shuttles. Tons of areas to sit, music, few outside bars-pricey glass of wine. Walking along the vineyards was nice for pictures. At least stop for a glass of wine. I don’t even remember what we had other than it was a white wine
    Thank you for your review! Yes, the Holiday weekends at the winery tend to get very busy. The availability of parking and golf cart shuttles must have been convenient. It's great to hear that we could provide plenty of seating areas. Overall, it seems like you had a pleasant experience. Thank you for your feedback!

    Great place and people
    Our favorite winery that we visited in the area! We were first greeted by two wonderful representatives of the winery, Teresa and Fiona. A special thanks to their above and beyond service. Hoping to see them behind the wine tasting counter next time. They are phenomenal. The whole place was interesting to walk through, the view was spectacular, live music was fun and the wines, amazing! I especially loved the Rose Champagne and the Almond Champagne. My husband said the Cabernet was great. Definitely recommend!
    Thank you so much for your wonderful review of our winery! We're thrilled to hear that it was your favorite in the area. Teresa and Fiona are truly exceptional, and we're delighted to hear they provided you with above and beyond service. We'll make sure they know about your kind words!

    Highly recommend
    We visited several wineries on this day, and decided on lunch at Wilson Winery. We are so glad we did. Food was excellent, and our waiter Ramiro was the BEST. He went out of his way to look after us. You are so fortunate to have him on your staff. He was so excited to tell us about the family and was so informative ….highly recommend.
    Thank you for your wonderful review! We're thrilled to hear that you had a great experience and enjoyed the excellent food. We're also glad to hear that Ramiro provided exceptional service and made your visit even more enjoyable. We appreciate your recommendation and feel fortunate to have Ramiro on our staff.

    I had a wonderful time visiting this boutique winery! It was a lovely day and the atmosphere was festive! While sampling wines we got a visit from Santa! The staff were friendly and helpful during our wine tasting! The parking lot was huge, but there was a cart that came through to take you from your car to the front entrance of the winery! What lovely memories were made during this visit!

    So unbelievably beautiful!!!
    The Vineyard Row was the perfect setting for my romantic, intimate wedding rehearsal dinner! Rose was a dream to work with, she was so nice and on top of things. Not only was the Almond Sparkling Wine a HUGE hit, but the food was delicious! I couldn’t have asked for a better wedding rehearsal location!! My guests were amazed at how beautiful and delicious everything was!

Winery is spacious and well laid out. They even provided a smoking area where you can enjoy your wine with a cigar. The wines are more on the sweet side and the atmosphere is geared more toward a young modern crowd

Nice property. Winery is geared towards a younger crowd with tables and couches spread out around the area. Piped in music opposed to a live band.
Wines are on the sweeter end and were not our style.
Food at the “take out” stand was reasonably priced for the area.
They have a spot off from the main area where they allow cigar smoking, which my husband appreciated.

I use to like going to Wilson creek, this last visit wasn't very memorable, our server Brock was not so engaging/educational at at all or friendly never asked questions or made us feel welcomed. Not so sure if I will be coming back.

Wonderful wines, beautiful grounds and excellent service—our second time there, and most definitely not our last. Wilson Creek Winery knows how to produce exceptional wines and sparklers, but what really impresses me is just how welcoming they are.

Their tasting room/wine bar shares a comfortably sized building with their large gift shop, which in turn grants easy access to their courtyard and restaurants. All of their venues—and staff members—work together to make sure that no matter where you want to park yourselves, your wining-and-dining experience will feel seamless.

Temecula is just one of California’s many famous wine producing locales, and we were all too happy to find ourselves in the area earlier this month. And as it just so happened to be our adult daughter’s birthday, we decided to celebrate her special day with a lunch and tasting at Wilson Creek.

Without even mentioning her b-day to the staff, our restaurant server, and the cashier selling us our tasting tickets, each presented her with a cork “necklace,” alerting other staff members to her celebration. We were allowed—even encouraged—to take our individual wine tasting selections (six total) from the bar back to our Creekside Grille restaurant table.

We ordered a meat & cheese board, along with a flatbread to share. Our server also presented our birthday girl with her very own candle-decorated chocolate lava cake! All food items were delicious, and easily paired with our tasting choices.

We picked up a bottle of their Pinot Noir to take home, as well as a few other fun souvenirs that “jumped” into my shopping basket…:o)

Whether you have a special occasion to celebrate, or are just looking for a fun place to enjoy a glass of wine in a relaxed setting, a stop at Wilson Creek will have you planning your return trip before you take you last sip.

I had every intention to to purchase a wine club membership to this winery since I love their wines and I am from out of town, specially Illinois. I had tried these wines from friends who have shared the white and red varieties. After inquiring I was told membership right kick in 24 hours membership. Basically meant my 125$ spent on wine tastings would be lost but I was welcome to return the next day to enjoy 4 free tastings. Since we were staying in Joshua Tree that wasn't an option. Secondly I was told my bi annual membership would cost approximately $70 to ship twice a year. Needless to say I asked to speak to a manager but I was told don't bother. I did not join the club and will pass along to anyone I see that Wilson creek the "family owned" winery is anything but family. Very disappointing!

The winery is beautiful and the service is great, but their wine is absolutely awful! As someone who frequents the central coast and napa wineries, I have never tasted such awful wine.
