Miramonte Winery is the passion project of Cane Vanderhoof, whose entrepreneurial spirit and love of wine led him to found this Temecula Valley winery in 2000. Located among the wineries on Rancho California Road, Miramonte is perched on a stunning hilltop overlooking the valley. The contemporary-chic tasting room, expansive patio and garden verandas offer an elegant and peaceful way to experience Southern California’s wine country.
Miramonte Winery is a dog-friendly winery, so bring your four-legged friends! And if wine tasting is not enough, sample one of the winery’s fabulous Food Boards (more details below) or enjoy live music entertainment on Friday and Saturday nights from 7-10pm.
Miramonte specializes in wines made from Rhone grape varieties, including their Provence-style Grenache rosé and Estate Syrah. Visitors can also look forward to sipping favorites like Cabernet, Chardonnay and Sangiovese. Check out the Miramonte wine store here!
All of Miramonte’s wines are handcrafted by seasoned winemaker, Reinhard Schlassa, whose pedigree includes a lengthy stint at Oregon’s renowned Argyle Winery, where he made sparkling wines in the Methode Champenois style. UC Davis educated, he has made wine with many icons of the industry, on three continents, over a span of two decades.
The Miramonte vineyards are sustainably managed. Taking into account the climate and the soil, the team at Miramonte has chosen a natural approach to farming in order to protect the land and sustain the amazing cycle of life that exists in the vineyard.
