"Nestled in the heart of the Temecula Valley Wine Country, Thornton Winery opened in 1988. The winery combines old world style with new world taste to create award-winning and premium varietal wines. The Méthode Champenoise process is used because it has proven to be the best for producing fine quality Sparkling Wine/Champagne.
Thornton Winery’s old world charm and grace are most apparent when visiting the winery in Temecula. The winery, an elegant French-style chateau overlooking the graceful vineyards of the Temecula Valley, highlights Café Champagne, a breathtaking Fountain Terrace, Herb Garden, Gift Shop, and Champagne Lounge."
