Situated within a sprawling 40-acre vineyard along the De Portola Wine Trail in Temecula Valley, Danza del Sol Winery offers a rustic yet vibrant ambiance, embodying the essence of the region. Just a short drive from San Diego, this winery, owned by Temecula residents Ken & Tina Smith and part of the Kentina Hospitality Group, stands as a testament to the area’s rich wine heritage.

Danza del Sol Winery traces its roots back to Temecula Valley’s wine history. With its vineyards initially planted with Zinfandel and Sauvignon Blanc in 1972, it boasts the oldest Sauvignon Blanc vines in the valley. Under the guidance of winemaker Justin Knight, the winery has consistently produced award-winning Mediterranean-style handcrafted wines.

Danza del Sol Winery believes in the unifying power of wine and invites all to partake in their tasting journey. Come celebrate life and savor the experience with us!



In the first year, Danza del Sol winery produced about 3400 cases of wine. Due to the popularity and quality of the wines, friendly staff and casual tasting experience, production has grown to 15,000 cases each year since 2015. Our  wines are sold exclusively direct to our customers – through the tasting room, our robust Wine Club and online store. The vineyard is planted with the following varietals: Cabernet Franc, Tempranillo, Gewürztraminer, Sangiovese, Syrah, Viognier, Orange Muscat, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Sauvignon Blanc.
