Churon Winery Description

Churon Winery is perched on the southern hillsides of the Temecula Valley. There, owners Ron and Judy Thomas have created a modern Bed & Breakfast retreat within their chateaux-style winery. The 11-acre property has vineyards, gardens, and patios with lovely vistas of the region.

At the entry a grand circular lobby greets guests with brightly painted murals, a large fireplace, and a railing from which to look down on the expansive gift shop and tasting room below. Descend the marble staircase and enter the wine tasting bar and expansive gift shop.

Winemaker Benny Rodriguez has produced a number of medal winning wines for Churon. Seventeen wines are available in the generous tasting space, including the full range of California varietals such as Syrah, Pinot Grigio, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay as well as dessert wines; sherry, port and a sweet orange Muscat.

Nice wines
The wines here are all very good, several made me stop and say "Wow!" I really loved the Amorosa, a slightly sweet, very drinkable red wine. Their Tempranillo is great too.

Lovely time at Churon
Kendra, Brentwood
We had a lovely time at this beautiful winery and inn during a recent visit to the area. It was our favorite stop for us girls as we were treated very well by the staff and loved the wines. The whites were our favorites and we loved the sweet dessert wine as a great finish. We also liked, and bought, gifts from their extensive shop. Be sure to check out the property as it is lovely. Next visit will be with husband and make a overnight weekend of it at their inn.

Bed, Breakfast & Wine
Lucy, San Jose
I decided at the last moment to stay at this vineyard/Bed & Breakfast and it was a wonderful decision. Despite the size of the place it is quite homely and made me feel very comfortable. I truly enjoyed this little retreat, it is a little romantic spot of relaxation and wine tasting. I would recommend staying at the Bed & Breakfast any trying any of the blends they were all wonderful.
