After visiting a number of California wine regions Robert Olson, owner and President, believed there was great potential in Temecula Valley and set out to purchase a vineyard and winery. Rich in history, Olson purchased Filsinger Vineyards and Winery in 2010 from Dr. William Filsinger. Founded in 1978 by Dr. William and Katharine Filsinger, the 35 acres of vineyard property was planted with Zinfandel and Sauvignon Blanc grapes in 1972 and was the first to plant Gewürztraminer grapes in Southern California, which later became a signature wine for the winery.Wine brings people together…. Because wine is made for sharing, its flavors turn a lazy afternoon on the patio, dinner with friends or a special occasion into something extraordinary. Wine helps create memories, and for Robert Olson, owner of Danza del Sol Winery, wine has become his family's legacy.
Under the ownership of Robert Olson, Danza del Sol Winery began with a simple goal in mind, " To produce quality wine at affordable price." After extensive renovations to the grounds and winemaking facility, and working closely with winemaker Mike Tingley, Danza del Sol Winery has developed a program of, "Producing wines with a strong Mediterranean influence. We pride ourselves on having something for everyone, while maintaining high quality at affordable prices. Today Danza del Sol Winery makes more than 12,000 cases of wine each year that can only be purchased through the tasting room.
Danza del Sol currently has over 20 acres of vineyard planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Tempranillo, Sangiovese, Syrah, Sauvignon Blanc, Gewürztraminer and Viognier. In the Spring of 2014 Danza del Sol will plant 10 more acres with a range of additional white and red varietals.
