Masía de Yabar Winery’s Peruvian owner fell in love with winemaking on the vineyards of Argentina before transitioning to Temecula to craft internationally influenced wines. Duos can swirl, sniff, and sip regular or premium vinos in a golden-hued tasting room before retiring to an expansive stone deck to savor a bottle of malbec rose amid panoramic views of sloped vineyards. Premium tastings include wine glasses as well as samples of pricier ferments, such as the 2009 malbec oak and rosa de peru sherry, which the sommeliers craft in small quantities from gold-plated grapes. The winery’s authentic malbec and torrontes varietals all hail from the owner’s Argentinian vineyards.
Masia de Yabar Vineyard and Winery
Loosely translated as Manor House, Masia de Yabar Vineyard and Winery mimics the style of a Spanish villa—a gently gabled, terracotta roof caps low stucco walls with arched outlooks. The villa hints at the Yabar family's Spanish ancestry, as well as their passion for winemaking. Today, the Yabar family oversees the production of a handful of wines and leads tastings in an earth-toned room. During tours of the vineyard and winery, they demystify the process of making wines by showing visitors their purple toes. In the shade of palms, they host art classes and live music, welcoming guests to relax on the patio with a spicy-sweet malbec or a full-bodied temtranillo.
