Beautiful 8000 Sq.ft Private Estate In Wine Country
About Regina Smith
Callaway Vineyard & Winery, and Temecula Wine Country, is located just 22 miles inland from the Pacific Ocean, on the eastern side of the South Coast Mountain range, with vineyards at approximately 1400-1600 feet in elevation. A break in the mountains to our west, known as the Rainbow Gap, allows the cool fog to flow inland from the pacific before slowly receding in the late morning. This cool coastal air combined with the warm air that we get from the east creates a micro-climate which is ideal for producing wine grapes. Callaway Vineyard & Winery currently grows seven different varietals. The winery property now has 20 acres of Estate vineyards planted with Viognier, Syrah, Dolcetto, Zinfandel, Sangiovese, Grenache, Roussanne, Petite Sirah and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. The Lin family owns an additional 200 acres of property at the corner of De Portola Road and Monte de Oro, of which approximately 50 acres are currently planted with Chardonnay, Cinsault, Mourvedre, Muscat Canelli and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes.

Made fantastic memories at The Zin Estate in Temecula!
What a beautiful estate with large comfortable rooms, a huge dining room, spectacular views, and two dishwashers in the awesome kitchen! We had a great time and will be back again.
5 sisters weekend
This is truly an absolutely beautiful home. We read the reviews, looked at several homes in this area and came up with this house. To be truly fair on why we gave it a 3 we had to go with a completely honest review for the next person who may want to rent. Pros: The house pictures look just like the house. It is big, warm, inviting. The kitchen is huge, there was more than enough room. Huge fridge, two dishwashers! The grounds are absolutely perfectly manicured, and the vineyards make you feel you are in Italy. There is more than enough room for large groups. We each had our own room which was nice. We particularly picked this home because our excitement came in the fact that we could swim, use the Jacuzzi each night next to the bbq area. We also picked this area, because it was a gated home for security, so we could leave the back doors open freely without having to worry. Most of our plans were around backyard area. Cons: We had planned menus to have bbq around Jacuzzi at night, Upon arriving, attempting to lock the gates. they would not close. We also attempted to turn on Jacuzzi, it did not work. We emailed the manager to learn how to close the gate and turn the Jacuzzi on, she only then at that time informed us, that a previous guest had broken the gate so we could not close it for security. We were also informed that the Jacuzzi pump was broken and Jacuzzi would not be available (as another guest review also went through). The manager informed me that she had sent me an email about the gate (after asking her to forward that email I did not receive, I still have not ) sorry for the inconvenience was what we were told after emailing (The communication was so poor I ended up calling 2nd day. Even the SMART TVs could be used as there are no instructions. All of he beautiful outdoor heaters? Not one of them worked, most did not even have propane tanks attached and were filled with cobwebs. it gets cold in Temecula at night! It was too chilly to hang out in the evening without the Jacuzzi or heaters. Manager did have Roman come and bring propane he was a gentleman. (Unfortunately the next night we smelled propane and decided safer not to use). You would think if you were going to pay over a grand a night here, you would get exactly what you were paying for, not half. (manager gave us a very inconsiderably small reimbursement). Nonetheless, the home itself is beautiful, but managing needs to be improved without a doubt.
Amazing Pool! Large Home! Great Location
Regina the property manager was great to work with. She was quick with getting back to me and extremely helpful. The home was beautiful and the pool was amazing. We enjoyed our time In Temecula. The house does need some updates but overall it was worth the money. I would recommend staying here and working with Regina.
We truly enjoyed our stay. The house was very accommodating for our wedding weekend needs. We would recommend others to stay. Regina was very pleasant to work with also. The only thing to watch for was there were numerous black widows and webs in the backyard. May need to spray for summer. Thanks again!
Very large house for large parties but...
The house is big with lots and lots of room to spread out. However, for such a large house for large parties, the kitchen is VERY SKIMPY on dishes, utensils, and cooking supplies. Good luck cooking for your large crowd. I also wanted to host a send off breakfast on Sunday for about 30 guests (then check out on Monday) but we were told "NO". I have since discovered that this house has hosted weddings and gatherings larger even than the one I was told I could not host even though I offered a larger security deposit because I knew my breakfast would be very subdued. I was offended when I heard this.
Huge estate, perfect for executive retreat
The house was great, very big with plenty of space. Unfortunately we couldn't get the hot tub to work and the decor was a little dated but other than that it was perfect. We enjoyed our stay and would rent again.
