Danza del Sol Winery

Danza del Sol Winery's story is rooted in Temecula Valley's wine history.  Founded in 1978, by Dr. William Filsinger, our 35 acre vineyard property, located on De Portola Road, was originally planted with Zinfandel and Sauvignon Blanc grapes in 1972.  In 1980, he opened Filsinger Vineyard & Winery.

Forward to 2009, after a successful career racing Rally Cars, software businessman Robert Olson wanted a new challenge. After visiting California wine regions, he believed Temecula Valley was the ideal place to grow and produce quality, award winning wines.  So in 2010 he purchased Filsinger Vineyards & Winery from Dr. Filsinger.

Wanting to build on the success, Robert Olson hired winemaker Mike Tingley and in the first year, Danza del Sol Winery produced about 8,000 gallons of wine (3,400 cases).  Today, Danza del Sol Winery produces more than 10,000 cases of wine each year that can only be purchased through the tasting room or online.  The vineyard is planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Tempranillo, Sangiovese, Syrah, Sauvignon Blanc, Gewurztraminer and Viognier.

Our Philosophy....

Wine brings people together.....At Danza del Sol Winery, we pride ourselves in producing affordable, quality wines in a Mediterranean style for you to share with friends and family on a lazy afternoon, dinner with friends or a special occasion.  We invite you to share our passion for our wines by visiting our tasting room and creating memories that will last a lifetime.
