Akash Winery

 The history of Akash begins with a family — a mom, dad, and son with a vision. A photo of a vineyard, perched on a fireplace mantle 20 years ago, embodied the Patel family dream. 

In 2010, that vision took root in the sandy loam of the beautiful Temecula Valley, when they purchased a 20-acre parcel of prime vineyard land.

Little did they know — Nalini, Ray, and their son Akash — that their dream would grow exponentially, just like the vines they planted on Calle Callento. 

Willpower and manpower, friends and extended family, helped guide them along the way. A winery and tasting room stocked with award-winning wines, season upon season of events and activities, and the joy of counting loyal customers among their ever-growing family proved to be more gratifying than they could have imagined.

Working alongside renowned winemaker Renato Sais, the Patels craft wines that are both unique and familiar. Two distinct labels, one sourced from their meticulously farmed estate vineyards and the other from neighboring vines, offer something for every palate. 

Contemporary, eye-catching labels signify that theirs is not a winery stuck in the dark ages. Rather, it is a vibrant, living dream that continues to grow and evolve over time.  

Our artful, lively tasting room and patio opened to the public in 2019. Spirited gatherings, tasting events, and wine club pickup parties fill the space with fun and excitement year-round. Join us for a yoga session on the patio, a sumptuous picnic in the vineyard, or a glass of wine at sunset. We hope to welcome you there, as part of our growing, extended family. 

From the Patel Family to yours — we hope you experience a taste of our dream in every glass.
