As one of the foremost producers of fine wine in Temecula, Wilson Creek has developed a reputation for having a very well-rounded wine collection. Most of the wine that Wilson Creek produces is made with grapes from their 60 acre vineyard. Several varietals are grown in their vineyards and much of their grape production is sold to other wineries.
Some of their more interesting wines include a white Cabernet Sauvignon, Angelica Sherry and a Zinfandel Port. Wilson’s Chenin Blanc is cold-fermented and then additionally fermented in oak on its lees where it undergoes a bit of malolactic fermentation. Their Petite Sirah is sourced from old-vines in Lodi and aged in American and French oak.
The Almond flavored Champagne style Sparkling Wine is very distinctive and has won several awards in local, state and international wine competitions. Wilson Creek also produces a Chocolate Port called Decadencia with fruit from 100 year old Zinfandel vines.
Wilson Creek’s Estate Bottled Cabernet Sauvignon tastes of blackberry and plum. In addition to their Cab, Wilson Creek also produces an Estate Zinfandel and a “Pinot Mour” which is a blend of Pinot Noir and Mourvedre.
Of their white wine, the most popular is their Estate White Cabernet Sauvignon. This innovative wine tastes of ripe peach and grapefruit with a hint of honey. Wilson Creek also produces a delicate Sauvignon Blanc and a Quartet Blanc, which is a blend of Viognier, Chardonnay, Semillon, and Sauvignon Blanc.
