We celebrated my daughter's 18th birthday three years ago with a hot air balloon ride.  We returned for her 21st birthday and celebrated with lunch and wine tasting.  What a wonderful venue.  Next may be a wedding!

The Temecula Valley Winegrowers Association congratulates South Coast Winery Resort & Spa for being named Winery Of The Year and bringing home The Golden Bear for an historic second consecutive year!  We’re so very proud of your achievement and thank you for your continued efforts in representing the Temecula Valley Wine Country so honorably.  - P. Evans, Temecula, CA


My husband was so excited to get your email that he forwarded it to me at the office, and we usually don't email personal stuff to our work place but he felt that I should hear the great news on the two-time California State Winery of the Year award.  We are so proud & know that all of South Coast must be smiling from ear to ear.  Congratulations to everyone.  Hard work needs to be rewarded, good job everyone. 

Forgot to tell you I dragged Jim, kicking & almost screaming, in to the Grape Seed Spa for a wonderful massage.  We thought we had died & gone to heaven.  The girls were so nice to us & we felt like a million dollars when we were done & the drive home was like floating on a cloud.  It was our 2nd massage ever in our lives, to die for, what a way to go.  Great staff there & what a beautiful spa, got to see it all this time.  Talk care & see you soon we hope.

We really enjoyed our wine tour -- informative and well paced (leisurely, comfortable, relaxed, casual, friendly).  Our patio tasting experience was great -- beautiful, comfortable elegant area with well chosen and presented fruites and cheeses -- very superior to any other tasting/tour and well worth the cost.  It was a beautiful addition to our stay at your resort.

My husband and I were brought to your winery by friends of ours who live in Fallbrook. I would like to say "thank you."  We had a wonderful time in the tasting room. We live in the Central Valley, and Sunday was the first day off that we have had in six straight weeks. Our wine server gave us outstanding information and suggested wines that I would not have otherwise thought to try. For the first time ever, I even had a Port! It was wonderful! We have visited many wineries, and even have a very dear friend who owns a fabulous winery in the Sonoma/Napa region. Your winery and our friends are my favorites by far! am glad that we spent a good portion of our day off in your winery! I didn't join the wine club because of how far we live, but I regretted that shortly after we left. I will be faxing my membership application in! Again, thank you for a splendid day! We look forward to our next visit to your winery (probably in 2009).

Our visit was a wonderful experience in every detail. Our server was quite knowledgeable about your wines and very friendly.

Great wine tour! Better than tour we took in Napa. The private tasting in the Barrel Room was a nice touch.

-John and Karen Gerlad, Orange County, CA



The restaurant was wonderful. Tara was such a great tour guide - so passionate, energetic and knowledgeable. Everything was first class and memorable. Thank you!

We came to Southern California when you were just opening. You were a 'garage' but extremely knowledgeable and had great wine. I have recommended many people over the years, and I am so happy you have not changed. You are still the best winery with the best staff! 

-Kara Kurcz



Our wine tour guide was fabulous and made us feel very comfortable even though our knowledge of wine / wine making / growing was 'zip'. I feel like I know how to taste wines now! The entire process of the behind-the-scenes tour was super. Thanks!
