Known for wine excellence and unparalleled scenery, Temecula Valley features more than 40 award-winning wineries, among them Gershon Bachus Vintners 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!


Enjoy spectacular views of the mountains, horse farms and surrounding vineyards delight discriminating guests at this family-owned boutique winery. The owners can often be found engaging with customers in the intimate sit down tasting room, one of very few in Temecula. They make certain visitors feel at home when visiting the Estate Winery, making their time both provocative and memorable for an afternoon of luxury.

They believe the true merits of a wine can only be measured if the tasting atmosphere is right. Also that the best things in life require time, and a borderline obsessive attention to detail so all of the varietals are aged in Hungarian Oak or French Oak for a minimum of 18 months. A rarity in wine tasting, they also have ample seating available and monitor the room to avoid overcrowding. Several members of the staff, seated in front of you, talk you through each varietal — be it the owners, the head winemaker, or the incredibly knowledgeable pourers.  Relax and heighten your senses to the fine wine and your surroundings as you enjoy the views, relaxing tunes, and simply kick back for a day you’ll always remember.

Set atop a hill with stunning 360-degree views of the surrounding mountains, are lavishly landscaped ceremonial grounds, next to a beautiful pond and waterfall offering a dream location for your perfect outdoor wedding ceremony. Whether it’s a once-in-a-lifetime wedding, annual corporate event, birthday party or anniversary celebration, GBV prides itself on the ability to host a great party. As a family-run business, they are not bogged down by needless processes or restrictions. Their only concern is providing an unforgettable, fun experience that you and your guests will talk about for years to come.

As part of the De Portola Wine Trail, Gershon Bachus Vintners 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 will be held in 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 — inviting guests to enjoy three varietals from the 10 De Portola wineries along with delectable appetizers.Click here to learn moreor to reserve tickets please call (855) 398-9463.
