Palumbo Family Vineyards Description

Nicholas Palumbo, of Palumbo Family Vineyards, is a passionate Viticulturist and budding Oenologist, and believes in producing only what he grows himself. “I believe there is only two basic ingredients in making fine wines, the fruit itself and the barrels it ages in.” With one foot in modern techniques and the other foot firmly planted in tradition, the wines produced possess a depth and elegance that is becoming harder to find in California wines. Along with his wife Cindy and their four children, the Palumbo’s believe that the vineyards come first. The 13 acres are planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Sangiovese varietals. A new block of Viognier and Syrah was planted on neighboring properties to round out the line of wines available.

Specializing in full-bodied reds, the estate-grown and produced varietals include both single variety bottling’s as well as a few special blends, like the very popular Meritage called “Tre Fratelli”. Other blends like the 2005 Shiraz/Cabernet Sauvignon help round out the wine list and showcase the versatility and depth of quality that the Palumbo wines are known for.

Relaxed tasting room, friendly staff. Wine completely changed my view of Temecula. They were fabulous. Big bold reds, farmed right there on the property. How have I missed going to this one? The best I have had in Temecula. Way to go Palumbo!
