Temecula Winery Spotlight: Get to Know… Wilson Creek Winery

Friday, April 19th, 2013

The Story

When the Wilson family acquired a 20-acre Temecula vineyard in 1996, their intentions were simply to build a family business producing great Temecula wines. 17 years later, Wilson Creek Winery is among the top-visited Temecula Valley wineries and the entire Wilson family can still be found on property every day welcoming loyal visitors and newcomers alike.  Winery guests feel the warm energy and personal touch of Wilson Creek the moment they step into the expansive tasting room or sit down for a great wine country meal at The Creekside Grille restaurant. Meet the whole Wilson family here!

Wilson Creek offers locally-sourced California cuisine at their al fresco restaurant. Their picturesque property features an outdoor pavilion, gazebo and beautiful picnic spots overlooking the vineyards. Inside the winery, guests can browse the charming gift shop and visitor center. Wilson Creek is also known for hosting dreamy wine country weddings and fabulous special events.

The Wines

“Great winemakers, much like great chefs, have a vision for the taste, smell, and ultimately the enjoyment of delicious wine.” says Etienne Cowper, Wilson Creek’s master winemaker, resident enologist and all-around wine expert.

Etienne is involved in the entire winery process from planting to picking. He has over 25 years of history in making award-winning wines, including a 16-year stretch at Mount Palomar Winery in Temecula; in addition, he’s worked with La Vina Winery in New Mexico and honed his expertise alongside famous Napa Valley winemaker, Jed Steel from Kendall Jackson Winery. Southern California wine enthusiasts are encouraged to stop by and meet Etienne—he always loves to chat about Wilson Creek wines.

Wilson Creek’s Almond Champagne is perhaps the best known of the wines offered by this Temecula winery, but they also boast dozens of unique and popular wines for taste and purchase, from sauvignon blanc and viognier to zinfandel and port. Shop all Wilson Creek wines here.
