Bella Vista Winery, the first commercial vineyard in Temecula. Our first priority is the quality of our wine. Select From White Wine, Red Wine or Champagne.
In 2004, Imre and Gizella Cziraki purchased the former Cilurzo Winery, the location of Temecula’s first commercial vineyard. The Cziraki’s have been updating and modernizing the winery facility and grounds since the purchase.
Bella Vista’s owner Imre Cziraki began making wine at age 7 with his grandfather in Hungary. He purchased his first vineyard in La Cresta in 1982 which was followed by the purchase of his Bella Vista Vineyard in 1998 and the winery property in 2004.
The first renovation was to take a large storage room and transform it into our expansive tasting bar. Other changes include improvements to our cask room where parties and receptions can be held.
Bella Vista Winery and Vineyard of Temecula uses in our wines 80% estate grown grapes and 20% other Temecula grapes. The winery has a crush capacity of 280 tons with a production of approximately 15,000 cases of wine which include a ’03 Viognier, a ’02 Sonata, a newly released ’01 Cabernet Sauvignon and a ’03 Chardonnay.
