Callaway Winery Re-visited: On Friday, 11/28/08, I visited Callaway Winery in Temecula for the first time in 3 years. I picked up friend C around 11:30 AM near UCLA and got into a traffic jam on 405 Free Way Southbound around Washington Blvd.for 30 minutes due to a prior accident. We reached Callawy Winery in Temecula around 2:20 PM.
We ate sushi we brought at the parking lot and went to get wine tasting! Since I brought 2-for-1 coupon for wine tasting, it was $10 for 2 of us to get the tasting with a signature logo glass each. We could select 6 from 21 kinds of wine at the tasting.
Grape harvests are picked by hands at night in September and October, because the temperature varies extremely in a day and it is too hot in daytime. To keep moisture in grapes and to maintain worker's stamina, they work at night.
Callaway Winery was founded in 1969 by Ely Callaway, who went on to gain fame and fortune in the world of golf. Extensive research led Mr. Callaway to Temecula and to veteran viticulturist John Moramarco who believed that the area was ideal for growing premium wine grapes.
On July 9, 1976, Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II toasted the President of the United States at a luncheon in New York City. The only wine served at this bicentennial event was Callaway's estate bottled 1974 White Riesling produced by Callaway Winery. Her Majesty, not known to be a wine drinker, requested a second glass! Then, Callawy wine became famous.
Privately owned, Callaway Vineyard & Winery was purchased by the Lin family of San Diego upon the dissolution of industry leader, Allied Domecq Wines, in late 2005. Callaway Vineyard & Winery wines are only available at the winery and are not available in any retail.
