Frangipani Estate Winery

Enjoy breathtaking views of the Temecula Valley at this family-owned winery on the De Portola Wine Trail.

Congratulations to Temecula Valley, selected as one of the 10 Best Wine Travel Destinations in 2019 by Wine Enthusiast Magazine. Known for wine excellence and unparalleled scenery, Temecula Valley features more than 40 award-winning wineries, among them Frangipani Estate Winery on the famed five-mile De Portola Wine Trail. Learn more about the winery below, have a barrel of fun and raise a glass to a memorable time!


Just off of De Portola Road in Temecula’s wine country, Frangipani Estate Winery sits “just off the beaten path” offering a secluded, peaceful setting for exploring a dynamic selection of wines with a passion for reds. Family owned and operated since 2003, the winery’s guests are treated to breathtaking views of the estate vineyard and surrounding valley. They can choose to enjoy wine tasting in the boutique tasting room or, on a typical spectacular day in the valley, the open air patio overlooking the vineyard and the De Portola Wine Trail.

No need to look further than the vineyards or tasting room to meet Don Frangipani, owner and winemaker at Frangipani. He’ll stop in to pour and chat for a while and then go tend to the wines produced on site. He has taken French varietals of Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Petite Verdot and developed them in the  old world, Italian style, crafted to challenge the seasoned palate or entice the developing appetite. “I have a wine for everyone. Those who travel off the beaten path to find this rural setting will enjoy a true connection with the wine and its creation. After all, winemaking begins in the vineyard. When you pay attention to what’s outside, what’s inside will flourish.”

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


Frangipani Estate Winery also offers a stunning venue for your wedding or special event. Two options for the ceremony site, give the bride the freedom to either have a commanding vineyard view, or a more intimate setting nestled among the vines under our expansive grape arbor, one-of-a-kind in Temecula’s wine country. Weddings from 15 to 100 guests can be accomodated, and once again, offer either an indoor and outdoor seating option for the reception. Couple this with an expansive grass lawn for your guests to lounge on, as well as the paved aisle leading up to the ceremony site, and you have the perfect venue and rustic vibe for your friends, family and guests to enjoy. If you schedule an event with Frangipani, it will be the only event on-site that day, giving you complete reign of the winery for your guests to relax in, and your creative ideas to flourish in.

The Annual Big Red Fest is held every April at the 10 participating wineries on the De Portola Wine Trail.
