Briar Rose Winery
Temecula Valley’s premier family owned and operated boutique winery that produces handcrafted, small lot, premium, artisan wines made from the most intensely flavored grapes from their lush vineyards.
Did you know there is a fairy tale cottage designed by Disney Imagineer, Beldon Fields, located in Temecula Wine Country? That’s right! Beldon Fields, one of many Imagineers who built Fantasyland and Toontown, purchased land in Temecula and built a replica of Snow White’s cottage for his wife. The beautiful and lush grounds, surrounded by water fountains and an enchanted rose garden, are shaded by a grand olive tree in front of the cottage that was relocated from the Callaway Winery – it is one of the largest and oldest olive trees in Temecula, if not in the entire State of California.

I had the pleasure to chat with owner, Dorian Linkogle, and learned about how her family bought this beautiful cottage and started their vineyard. In the early 1990s Les and Dorian Linkogle purchased the beautiful estate from Beldon Fields with the promise to not change the architecture of the cottages. It turned out that the estate location was perfect for growing grapes. So, in the late 1990s Viognier grapes were planted along with Merlot, Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon and Riesling. Soon, the Linkogles began selling some of their grapes to local wineries. When the wines started winning awards, the family considered opening a winery of their own. In 2002, Carl Key, owner of the Keyways Winery, convinced Les Linkogle to open his own winery, which he did. Since their grand opening in 2007, the winery has charmed all who visit. Briar Rose wines’ popularity has reached famous places such as the White House and the Playboy Mansion, as well as having won numerous international gold, silver and bronze medals in just a short time.

These are truly first-class wines. The red wines are my favorite. Watch this interview to learn about the rare Mission grape, called the Heritage Grape of California, that was first planted by the Franciscan Friars.
