The tasting room is open daily from 11:00 to 5:00 (10:00 to 5:00 on Saturdays) and no reservations are required unless you are coming with a group of more than 12 people.

LIBRARY WINE OF THE MONTH
Join us for our new Library Wine of the Month program. Each month winemaker Phil Baily will pick one of Baily’s Library Wines (wines that benefit from further aging in the bottle) to be featured.
The wine will be poured at both of our locations as an added bonus to the regular tasting, and will be available for purchase at a discounted price. No signup or membership fee is required.
Wines will include Meritage, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Cabernet Franc from the years 2004 – 2011. All of them are 100% Estate Bottled and made from grapes grown in our own estate vineyards here in Temecula Valley.
This month’s selection is our 2012 Meritage, a gracefully aged velvety wine with great complexity and finesse.
