About

All of the wines are made from grapes grown on the estate vineyards by Winemaker Phil Baily at the state-of-the-art production facility. On your next visit to Temecula come and taste Baily wines and see for yourself why the Oxford Companion to Wine calls "Baily Winery one of the two most artistically successful of the small pioneering wineries in Temecula".

History

In 1981 Carol and Phil Baily and their two sons, ages 11 and 9, decided to pull up their roots in the Los Angeles area and remake their lives by “moving to the country.” The “country” turned out to be the Temecula Valley, a former 100,000 acre cattle ranch which was being transformed into a residential/agricultural community, the centerpiece of which was a 3000 acre nascent wine region.

Practices & Techniques

Specializing in the Bordeaux varieties (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon), Baily wines are know for their smoothness and expressive varietal character, the result of spending 30 months in barrel, 12 to 18 months longer than normal industry practice.. And making wines from the same vineyards for over twenty years assures a consistency that few wineries in the region can match.

As an added quality factor, all of Baily’s wines are sealed with Nomacorc ®, a synthetic cork that has all of the attributes of natural cork without the chance of tainted wines or bottle-to-bottle variation. Natural corks cannot give that guarantee.

Estate Vineyards / AVA

Our grapes come from 27 acres of grapes in four different locations in the Temecula Valley.

MOTHER’S VINEYARD:

The first acre of Mother’s Vineyard was planted by our family on Mother’s Day in 1982. Expanded in 1983, it now comprises five and one-half acres, all planted to the Riesling variety. The soil is decomposed granite, and the southeast facing hillside site creates an early ripening environment which produces grapes of high natural acidity. The grapes have the classic apricot flavor prized in Riesling.

BERENDA VINEYARD:

Planted primarily to Bordeaux varieties, Cabernet Sauvignon (five and one-half acres), Cabernet Franc (two acres), Merlot (two acres), Sauvignon Blanc (two acres) and Semillon (one acre), this vineyard was planted in 1968 and purchased by us in 1994. In 2005, one and one-half acres of Malbec and two and one-half acres of Sangiovese were planted. While still classed as relatively poor soil, it tends to be somewhat richer than Mother’s Vineyard, and especially suitable for these varieties.

LA SERENA VINEYARD:

Comprised of one and one-half acres of Cabernet Sauvignon and one acre of Sauvignon Blanc, these grapevines are the ones you see at the visitor center. Grown on sandy/clay soil, they produce wines with exceptionally fruity varietal aromas.
