Wilson Creek Celebrates 15-Year Anniversary
Wilson Creek Winery has been the Place to Be in Wine Country Since 2000
TEMECULA VALLEY, CA: (September 23, 2015) - Wilson Creek Winery and Vineyards is truly a 21st Century wine destination. Founded in 2000, this familyun enterprise will celebrate its 15th year in business in the Temecula Wine Country his October.
Famous for its award-winning Almond sparkling wine (formerly known as Almond Champagne), and now a whole family of sparkling delights, Wilson Creek has grown from a boutique style valley winery to a vineyard-winery operation that ships thousands of cases of vintage wines each year.
"When we opened in October of 2000, our goal was to establish a business that would bring our family together doing something we all cared about very much," says Bill Wilson, president and CEO at Wilson Creek. "It worked. My parents had retired before we opened, but they loved the idea of working in the winery and through the years they were a major contributor to the success of the operation. Today, we have four generations of Wilsons and Wilson Family pets on site nearly every day."
Through the years Wilson Creek has established itself as "the fun winery" in the Temecula Valley with a host of ever-growing event facilities, lavish accommodations at Wilson Creek Manor, and of course a bevy of award-winning wines.
"We are constantly expanding and improving our property to accommodate the demand for entertainment, wine tasting, business meetings, weddings and more," says Wilson. "From the beginning, our priorities have been making outstanding quality wines, and making the people who enjoy those wines feel at home. For me, it's all about quality of wine and customer service."
Those priorities have served Wilson Creek Winery well. The Winery has won numerous awards throughout the United States and some prestigious international awards as well. The beautiful Creekside setting has lent itself to multiple television and movie sets and the gazebo and concert stage have hosted many world-famous musicians. Nearly a thousand couples have been married on the property and special events and concerts are standard throughout the year.
"Looking forward, we are currently expanding our wine-tasting facilities and doing some other property improvements," says Wilson. "We are always looking for new ways to interact with or customers and that's what I think has been a big part of our success. The basic interaction with our own family and now our family of customers. Life is always better when everyone is having fun."
In honor of Wilson Creek Winery's 15th anniversary, on Wednesday, October 14, all sparkling wines will be on sale for $10. The sparkling wines may be purchased online or in the tasting room. Also, Creekside Grille patrons will enjoy a special anniversary cake to celebrate.
