Baily Vineyard & Winery Description

The tasting room and restaurant at Baily Winery are chateaux-like, with stone brick walls, tall ceilings and sculpted “Griffins” overlooking the grounds. Winemaker Phil Baily and Chef Carol Baily have created a lovely place for wine and food lovers.

The focus here is on Bordeaux grape varieties. Baily also produces a range of dessert wines and rosés, as well as Riesling, Sangiovese, Chardonnay and some lovely blends. The tasting room and gift area is expansive and includes a deli for fresh gourmet food. For a real treat, on Sundays they serve sushi!

The fruit comes from 32 acres of grapes from four different locations in the Temecula Valley. The soils are generally decomposed granite and are well drained. Vines are cooled during the summer days by breezes that flow through a gap in the Coastal Range. With an average elevation of 1,500 feet, the vineyards experience cooler summer nights. They are all drip-irrigated to make up for normal deficiencies in rainfall.

In 2001, a new state-of-the-art production facility was completed, allowing for full control of the winemaking--from grape growing to bottling, ensuring consistency and quality.

Wine and dine at Baily Winery at Carol’s Restaurant, which has a selection of luncheon salads, sandwiches, pasta dishes, and grilled fish and steak, with live music on Sundays.

Wonderful new find for us
Jim91010, Duarte
We often make a stop in the Temecula area and visit one of the wineries. Our most recent stop was Aug. 1, 2014 and we tried Baily. It was our good fortune to be there on a weekday afternoon, thus no crowd. In fact, the only other couple walked out as we were entering. Our tasting host was very friendly and his knowledge of the wines was outstanding. He also has been a resident of the Temecula area for many years and has a good knowledge of the other wineries. The style of winemaking by the owner is more of a European style and the wines tend to be a bit drier than most other California producers. My favorite wine of the afternoon was a 2009 Meritage, a Bordeaux style blend, while my wife fell in love with the 2005 Merlot. This is not your thin mealy merlot, is BIG and has a smooth finish. My wife also enjoys Cabernet Franc which is usually used in blending but a few makers will produce Cab Fran as a varietal. Mr. Baily also makes a blend he calls M&M, a 50% blend of merlot and malbec. This 2010 blend was very rich and smooth. At the end of the tasting session ($15 - we usually buy one and split the tastes) we ended up purchasing the 2005 Merlot, the 2010 M & M, the 2010 Cab Franc, the 2010 Cab Sauvignon.

Amazing service and an overall Fun Winery
Pretty expensive, but very good, quality wines. The port was one of the best I have ever had, and the man working was very knowledgable and patient. I really enjoyed my experience here.

Sushi and Wine
These are two things that I love to combine in my own home, sushi and wine, and so to venture out into a winery and find that they also appreciated the likeness of the two was great. I enjoyed their Reisling and a fantastic rich dessert and then followed it with a taste of sushi, it was backwards but it worked. I can't wait to return.
