At Temecula's hippest winery, perched on a hilltop, listen to Spanish-guitar recordings while sampling the slightly pricy Opulente Meritage, a supple Roussanne, or the sultry Syrah. Owner Cane Vanderhoof's wines have earned dozens of awards. While you're enjoying your wine on the deck, order an artisan cheese plate. On Friday and Saturday nights from 7 to 10, the winery turns into a local hot spot with tastings of signature wines ($17) and beer, live music, and dancing
that spills out into the vineyards.
