Scott & I fell in love with this winery on our first trip to Temecula.  Originally it was their white port that had us sold, although we do still love the white port it's their amazing red wines that keep us coming back.  Naturally when we needed wine for our Grand Opening tasting we headed down to Wiens to pick three of our favorites.  It was such a hard choice but here's what we ended up picking:

2011 White CrowdedPineapples, pears, grapefruit, coconuts, and nectarines.  Pairs well with salads, seafood, poultry, and ham.

2010 Barbera
Sweet plum, violet, strawberry, and a bright cherry finish.  Pairs well with basil pesto pasta, lasagna, and pizza with artichokes.

Ruby Port
Black pepper, mocha, plum jam, and roasted chestnuts.  Great match for dark chocolate and the most decadent desserts.

If your ever in Temecula, Wiens is a must!
