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.
