Standing atop a low-lying hill in the heart of Temecula Valley wine country, Falkner Winery warmly greets guests with a gracious blend of exceptional wines and genuine Temecula Valley hospitality. 

The stunning Falkner Winery was founded just 12 years ago by Loretta and Ray Falkner. The couple, who both came from successful business careers, decided from the beginning that they would focus on producing wines of superior quality. With the help of Winemaker Steve Hagata, they are doing just that. Falkner wines are soft, approachable, and readily drinkable. The Falkner wines see plenty of barrel time—in fact, most of the reds age at least three years before their release. 

This patience has paid off vintage after vintage when it’s time to pass out the major wine awards. In fact, an impressive 80 percent of Falkner’s current releases have received Gold or Silver medals. At the 2012 Riverside Wine Competition, the 2008 Meritage Bordeaux-style blend received a Gold medal and the 2008 Amante Super Tuscan-style red blend received a Silver medal.These awards are in addition to the wonderful Best of Show Red award given to the 2008 Syrah-Rock Creek Vineyard at the 2012 Winemakers Challenge International Wine Competition. 

In 2006, the Falkners opened a beautiful restaurant at the winery, aptly named The Pinnacle, for its prime spot on the hill as well as its commitment to fine Mediterranean/American cuisine. Since opening, The Pinnacle has also acquired a great deal of praise and accolades. Guests enjoy sweeping Falkner vineyard views as they dine on outstanding healthy and diet-focused fare. 

It seems that something is always happening on Falkner’s grounds: free jazz concerts on Sunday afternoons, wine appreciation classes, and even weddings. Brides often confer with Loretta herself as they plan to be married in the Falkner vineyards. 

Already a favorite in Temecula Valley, Falkner wines are certain to find a new following soon in northern China’s Liaoning Province. The Falkners have partnered with a large Chinese company to provide Falkner’s distinctive wines at Falkner Winery China.
