Chart Topping Traditions Continue for Southern California, Temecula Valley’s South Coast Winery

It was just announced this morning through the PRESS ENTERPRISE Reader’s Choice awards that not only has Temecula California’s South Coast Winery been ranked #1 Top Winery in the State of California by a panel of expert judges at 2013 California State Fair Wine Competition in June; but, most recently, over 10,000 local Southern Californians, neighbors and readers of this local daily publication have voted and agreed: South Coast Winery is the Best Winery.

Here is the Top Three Best Winery ranking, according to PRESS ENTERPRISE readers/subscribers, as published in today’s Food & Wine section:
#1 South Coast Winery
#2 Wilson Creek
#3 Ponte

But these are not the only charts South Coast seems to be topping these days. The creators of released its 100 Most Influential Winemakers List for 2013, and South Coast Winery’s Master Winemaker Jon McPherson was among those listed, stating “Jon McPhearson(SIC) of South Coast Winery in Temecula oversees a dizzying portfolio of red, white, sweet and sparkling wines, helping to elevate the image of the Temecula wine region and Southern California. Named California Winery of the Year for three years by the California State Fair, he has affected the perception of Southern California winemaking, and in the process has become one of the region’s most awarded, and popular wineries in Temecula.”

Indeed, as indicated in the July 2013 economic impact report prepared by Dean Runyan Associates for the Temecula Valley Convention and Visitors Bureau, Southern California Temecula Valley Wine Country has had a positive impact on the region’s economic recovery as visitor spending in 2012 surpassed the prerecession figures of 2008. In a world of homogenized winemaking and approximately 7,000 bonded wineries in the U.S. today, it’s plain to see that South Coast Winery is taking winemaking seriously, while its five-star winery resort leaves guests with an elevated and unique vine-based experience that is simply unforgettable.

South Coast Winery Resort & Spa produces five–star hospitality and a broad portfolio of premium wines. Over the course of the first ten years of its production, the winery has received over 2,000 awards and medals from both international and domestic wine competitions, including three–time winner of the coveted California State Best of State distinction. The winery graces the grounds of South Coast Winery Resort & Spa, a 39–acre destination property located in the heart of Southern California Temecula Valley Wine Country at 34843 Rancho California Road, Temecula, California.
