Winery Spotlight: Get To Know…Wiens Family Cellars

Friday, September 21st, 2012

 

The Story

After decades in the beverage and hospitality industries, the Wiens family opened their doors to their first winery in the farm country of nearby Sacramento in 2001, then moved on to open their popular Temecula Valley winery in 2006.

“We have a large and tightly-knit family with a broad range of talents, all contributing to the success of our business,” says Doug Wiens.  “We enjoy the company of friends, good food, and fine wines. Our winery was built to be oriented around a relaxed, friendly, and rural lifestyle.

Our goal is to create a place where people feel right at home – part of our family.”

 

The Wines

Doug says the family mission is “to make the highest quality wine and provide it at a reasonable price. The winery seal contains the words Quality, Family, and Integrity.  We stand firmly by those three words as our guiding principles.”

Wiens’ slogan is “Famous for Big Reds!”  Indeed, Wiens offers an array of favorites from Zinfandel to Cab to Syrah, plus plenty of delicious blends with memorable names like Perspective, Crowded, and Obscura. Wiens is also one of the only area wineries to offer a Pinot Noir.

Not to be missed, Wiens Family Cellars pours a variety of whites and dessert wines, too.  At the tasting bar, guests will enjoy both white blends and single varietals like Chardonnay and Viognier (the floral grape is a hit in Temecula Valley!)  If you’re celebrating in wine country, be sure to buy a bottle of Amour de L’Orange – their festive sparkler has a citrus twist.
