Our Focus on Temecula week continues on the blog with my trip to Bel Vino Winery – a 43 acre winery previously known as Stuart Cellars. They have a fantastic tasting room that has this alcove/cellar like feel to it. The wine club members get to enjoy their wine cellar with wine barrel tables and fantastic long bar. This winery also offers a fantastic view with hilltop picnic area where they have live music on the weekends.
But what I had the real pleasure of enjoying was a tour of the newly remodeled Bel Vino House. A 3,000 sq. ft. home that sits atop their winery overlooking their grounds with all the modern amenities, including a wine closet which the winery will stock up when you order some wines in advance for your group stay. The house is gorgeously decorated including elegant living room, full kitchen and luxurious suites.
The home and panoramic views offering breathtaking vistas are perfect for weddings and a weekend getaway with your friends. My vote is for a weekend getaway with some friends with a winery right in the backyard – YES, PLEASE! Or maybe even a holiday like Thanksgiving and Christmas with extended family. Their spacious living room and dining room have enough space for everyone, plus their 2011 Viognier wine is a popular wine during Thanksgiving time.

Enough jibber jabber, let’s enjoy the winery through some photos. If you’ve been to Bel Vino Winery I’d love to hear about it in the comments below.

Special thanks to Bel Vino Winery for spending time with me during my visit and showing me around their grounds. They provided 2-for-1 tasting coupons for our Facebook Fan of the Week giveaway. Although tastings and coupons were provided all opinions are 100% my own because honesty is the best policy. :)
