Our Wine Story Began With Passion And A Vision
A vision of excellence combined with Old World hospitality and charm. We had a vision of bringing together the high standards and values of traditional European wine making with the beauty and richness of one of the most ideal wine growing regions in America—the Temecula Valley Wine Country in Southern California.
After savoring the elegant wines and picturesque terrain of wine regions in France, Spain, and Italy, our founders were determined to recreate their experiences in Southern California for others to enjoy. They envisioned a village of wineries offering exquisite wines created in the European styles they loved so much.
And so our story began. It took a decade of imagining, planning and research, but several years ago, Europa Village became a reality on more than 30 acres of lush vineyards in the rich “terroir” of Temecula Valley, where the soil, elevation, and weather work together to nurture wonderful grapes. Our first premium wines were produced from these grapes and offered to our guests in 2011 in our enchanting C’est La Vie wine tasting room.
Since then the word has spread and Europa Village has become one of the most distinctive wine tasting destinations in the region — known for its luscious wines, captivating setting and gracious hospitality.
Guests can also stay at the Inn at Europa Village, which overlooks the tasting room and beautiful rolling hills of vineyards. Featuring Old World warmth and charm, the Inn is a magical getaway with ten recently redecorated, tasteful rooms. A major feature of your stay at the Inn will be the delicious breakfast “experience” served and prepared each morning by Executive Chef Dean Thomas, a five-star chef whose delicious, creative dishes feature local, seasonal ingredients.
But the story is just beginning. Ground breaking has begun to carry out the original vision for Europa Village Resort — three wineries featuring wines made in the styles of France, Italy and Spain. Europa Village is delightful to visit right now and it will be fascinating to watch our vision for the future evolve right before your eyes. So come sample our superb wines, stroll around our beautiful gardens, and immerse yourself in our enthralling Old World experience.
