If you care about animals or people, don't spend your money here!!! This was our favorite vineyard in Temecula. Now, I definitely will never go back. I saw the most horrifying thing. I was sitting in the back garden with my friends and one of our friends brought their dog. The dog was a small little black fluffy mix that was sitting attached on a leash beside them. "Cabernet" who is the Wilson's dog came running up and scared the poor little dog. When her dog went to stand up, the beautiful Golden Retriever that is owned by the Wilson's attacked it. The Golden Retriever (who we had seen on many occasions previously) bit into the dog's neck, viciously shook it back and forth, and almost killed it. The dog was screetching and writhing in pain. My friend jumped up and tried to pry her dog out of it's mouth. Finally she succeeded and at the same time a Wilson Creek employee started screaming at her that "dogs are not allowed here." We just witnessed their dog attack and almost kill the poor little dog and instead of seeing if my friend's dog was going to survive, she screamed at us to get it out of there. The other people in the garden were staring dumbfounded. What type of person would scream at someone whose dog was just attacked by the vineyard owner's dog. She did not come to see if the dog was ok, she just took the offending Golden Retriever inside. While her cousin took the poor little injured fluff to get care, my friend went to talk to the owner but the employees said the owner was not there. Several employees began to scream at my friend and tell her "dogs are not allowed." I could understand if there was one ignorant employee but out of seven of them NOT ONE had the decency NOT to be rude and mean. No one cared about the poor little piece of fluff that their vineyard dog attacked and no one had any sense of human decency. Seven different employees told her it was her fault in several different ways: 1) for bringing her dog into the garden (even though there are dogs in the garden very frequently); 2) because her dog growled (when he was scared by the large golden retriever who proceeded to attack him); and 3) because she didn't tell the dog to go away??? I saw the whole thing and there certainly was no time to "tell the dog to go away." My friend was so visably distraught and shaking when she left that place because it was such an incredibly horrifying experience and not one of the employees did anything to help and instead they verbally accosted her WHEN it was their dog who almost killed her little pup. DON'T GO HERE. They are a bunch of phonies. They use their dog as a marketing ploy but they could care less about people or animals.
