Before it became the region's home for inventive winemaking, the Temecula Valley was ranch country. Today, horses are still man's best friend, adding a distinctively Western vibe to the area's Mediterranean-style vineyards. This includes Keyways Vineyard & Winery, where a hitching post often hosts the horses of visitors passing the day inside.

This equestrian touch belies the sophistication of Keyways's winemaking enterprise. Inside a tasting room that the California Winery Advisor dubbed "rustic yet elegant," visitors sample the complex reds and whites that grace the black onyx bar. The winemaking team's adherence to craftsmanship results in limited-run vintages that fill the vineyard?s trim annual production of 4,000 cases.

An elegant chateau sits on the hill at the center of Leoness Cellars’ vineyard, overlooking 70 acres lush with grapes. The chateau welcomes guests who come to visit its tasting rooms and serves as a compass of sorts for those who wander too far on walks through the purplish fields. It looks on as couples recite their vows during wedding ceremonies, and it houses a complete production facility where daily tour groups learn about the age-old methods of crushing, aging, and singing soft lullabies to grapes. Chef Daragh Matheson fills the chateau’s kitchen with the aromas of Alaskan salmon, ahi tuna, and beef carpaccio—specialties that pair exquisitely with the cellars’ wines.

Amid Temecula Valley's rippling foothills, equestrian farms, and estate vineyards, Frangipani Estate Winery has carved out a rural post of its own overlooking the Deportola Wine Trail. Since 2003, owner and winemaker Don Frangipani has fused French varietals with old-world Italian styles, exhibiting a passion for red wines along the way. Today, Don's facility produces 5,000 cases per year, and every day, it swings open the doors to its boutique tasting room so visitors can stop by and test drive samples.

Grapes have played a tremendous role in human history—many members of the Hapsburg dynasty were at least half-grape—and they tended to do their best work at vineyards. Today's Groupon treats you to one of the San Diego region's better graperies with $75 worth of gourmet cuisine and drinks at Callaway Vineyard and Winery's Meritage in Temecula for $35. You'll also get 10% off everything at Callaway's wine store (just print your Groupon twice to use it once in the restaurant and once in the store). You may use one Groupon for every two people at your table, so you, your identical twin, and your identical twin dates can all enjoy a night of wacky mismatches and delicious food.

Bold, fruit-forward reds that reflect Old-World winemaking techniques and distinctive character of Temecula Valley's climate continue to serve as Doffo Winery's star bottles. Although the selection also includes white wines that range from crisp and citrusy to floral and tinged with hints of tropical fruit, the robust malbecs, zinfandels, and cabernet sauvignons showcase the area's strengths as a grape-growing region. Doffo Winery has embraced these strengths since it first opened in 1997.

Two International Influences

Argentina Italy
In the early 1900s, Marcelo Doffo's family moved from Italy to Argentina. His grandfather settled in the Pampas region of the country. Marcelo grew up on his grandfather's land, which featured fields of wheat and corn and herds of cattle. It was in these fields that Marcelo developed his passion for tending the land: a passion that accompanied him when he immigrated to the United States. Eager to return to his ancestral roots, Marcelo decided to visit a great uncle living in Turin, Italy. His great uncle continued to use a portion of the family's Italian estate to grow and make his own wines. The idea of learning to make wine intrigued Marcelo, and he wholeheartedly embraced the practice after returning to his home in the United States.

The Beginnings of a Winery

After successfully experimenting with homemade wines, Marcelo decided to commit to winemaking by founding a winery. He located a tract of land with a historic, one-room schoolhouse that reminded him of his childhood in Argentina, and he began to care for the land, preparing the soil, building trellises, and installing irrigation lines by hand.

This tract of land became the home of Doffo Winery, which currently features 15 acres of vineyards and a full production facility. Unable to shoulder all of the responsibilities himself, Marcelo sought help from his wife, Zulma and eventually from his son, Damian, turning the winery into a family business.

Things to Do Other than Taste

  • Demonstrate Your Love : Inspired by the actions of Parisian couples who would affix padlocks to gates, bridges, or fences as a sign of their unbreakable love, the Doffo's built an arch atop a hill overlooking their land. This arch?surrounded by stone benches with sweeping views?allows guests to attach their own love lock, each of which remains a testament to the bond of a loving couple.
  • Marvel at the Horsepower : Doffo Winery is also home to the family's private collection of more than 100 vintage and racing motorcycles. Motorcycles and scooters hang from the walls of a room that also stores barrels upon barrels of wine, showcasing two of the family's passions in one space.
  • Listen to the Fields : The sound of classical music floats across the vineyards. Although the family insists that this music is played to soothe the grapes, there is nothing to stop visitors from enjoying it as they look out across the rolling landscape.

High atop a hill in the Temecula valley, surrounded by clear blue skies and lush rows of Rhone grapes, sits Miramonte Winery, where the winemakers soulfully craft their red wines, off dry ros?s, and inspired whites. A big, open veranda wraps around the building to provide an airy venue for wine tastings, and Mojo, the winery dog, curiously greets visitors before going off to lay in the sun.

The deep flavors and aromas in Miramonte's wines come not only from the way the Rhone grapes grow in the valley, but also from the expertise of winemaker Reinhard Schlassa and passion of owner Cane Vanderhoof. A UC Davis alum, Schlassa has made wines with icons of the industry on three continents, and he continues to perfect his craft at Miramonte Winery.
