This winery reflects the spirit of “The Valley” rustic, authentic and bold. Located on the De Portola Wine Trail in Temecula, the vineyard is nestled in the hills surrounded by a beautiful Spanish Style Estate. Rich in history, the 35 acres of vineyard property was originally planted with Zinfandel and Sauvignon Blanc grapes in 1972 and was the first to plant Gewürztraminer grapes in Southern California, which later became a signature wine for the winery. Since then, the varietals have expanded to include: Cabernet Franc, Syrah, Merlot, Tempranillo, Chardonnay, Mourvèdre, Sangiovese, Viognier, Vermentino & Pinot Grigio as well.

Wine brings people together and because wine is made for sharing, it can turn a lazy afternoon on the patio, dinner with friends or a special occasion into something extraordinary. Wine helps create memories, and for Robert Olson, owner of Danza del Sol Winery, wine has become his family’s legacy. Danza del Sol Winery began with a simple goal in mind, “ to produce quality wine at affordable price.” After extensive renovations to the grounds and winemaking facility the winery has developed a successful practice of producing wines with a strong Mediterranean influence. They pride themselves on having something for everyone, making more than 12,000 cases of wine each year that can only be purchased through the tasting room. Enjoy a picnic with a bottle of Danza del Sol wine on our expansive patio, take in the views of the rolling hills and just relax.

As part of the De Portola Wine Trail, Danza del Sol and its eight neighboring wineries collectively host one of the most anticipated tasting events of the Temecula Valley Wine Country season each year.

The Annual Big Red Fest is held every April at the 10 participating wineries on the De Portola Wine Trail. This culinary/wine tasting event provides noshes from 10 local artisan chefs, paired with three red wines from each winery. These reds are the creme-of-the-crop of the new vintage releases. The similarly themed fall Harvest Festival is held in November — invites guests to enjoy three varietals from the 10 De Portola wineries along with delectable appetizers.Click here to learn more! or to reserve tickets please call (855) 398-9463.

The Estate Club House at Danza del Sol was designed as the perfect backdrop for the ultimate wine country wedding, but with all of the warmth and comfort many have come to expect from the friendly, approachable staff. On the weekends the patio is bustling with live music, picnics, wine tasting and happy guests simply lounging in the beauty that surrounds the estate.
