Wiens Family Cellars
Wiens, a favorite among wine aficionados, is more like your typical Temecula winery with large grounds and a tasting room. What makes it family-friendly is its giant lawn and outdoor amphitheater which is set away from the tasting tables. On any given day you'll find kids of all ages playing in the spacious area while their parents enjoy sipping on the wide variety of wines the vineyard offers. It's also easy to find a quiet spot to park a snoozing baby. The staff is extremely friendly and eager to please. There is limited shade so be sure to load up on sunscreen and bring hats.
Insider Tip: The vineyard does allow Coleman Soft-Side Coolers, which are more practical than a wine picnic basket when travelling with littles.
