  • I live in the SF Bay area, and of course, show loyalty to Napa and Sonoma. But, I am open to other areas in CA as having superb wine. Doffo is a great break from the traffic and crowds. The staff was ...  read more »
  • Awesome Red's! Knowledgeable staff in the tasting room. Tastings are also provided outside on the patio. Love the experience
  • Delicious wines. Friendly staff. Enjoyed our visit more than the larger wineries as the staff attention was wonderful as Doffo's. Can't wait to return!
  • Zulma Doffo, Marcelo's wife, is a true Doffo Brand Ambassador, handles most of the "behind-the-scenes" operation, and is known locally as the Chimchurri Queen. She is also a great tour guide; showing off the winery grounds from the vineyard, event spaces, and you might be able to see some winemaking in action (depending on the time of year you visit). There are some amazing spaces here for company parties or retreats, weddings, family picnics and reunions. On the weekends, food trucks make a stop here where you can enjoy gourmet food while enjoying your favorite glass of wine on the terrace. One of Orange County's food trucks, Piaggio Gaucho on Wheels, can be found here on occasion. Here are tasting notes on some of the Doffo wines: * 2014 Viognier: dry; peach aroma; mild grapefruit notes. * 2012 Motodoffo Red Table Wine: dry; cherry aroma; berry and peppery notes; would pair well with pork. * 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon: cherry aroma; rich and robust with peppery and oak notes. * 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve: smooth, rich, and robust; easy drinking. * 2012 Malbec: high flavor notes which work well with Doffo's Chimichurri on toast or even smothered on a marbled steak. * 2013 Petite Sirah: dry; fruity with blueberry and blackberry notes; color is beautiful with a fluorescence. * Syrah Reserve: bright, delicate flavors that tease the palate and dissipate quickly. * 2011 Zinfandel Vintner Selection: jam-like aroma; jam and plum notes; dry finish; would pair well with lamb. * Paulina Cuvee: Muscat adds sweetness; reminiscent of a spritzer.
  • A great experience and amazing reds.
  • Sadly, I had a very poor experience at Doffo on Wednesday, November 27th. I'm a wine club member and I live out of state, so I was so pleased that I'd be able to get to the winery with some friends & family prior to the Thanksgiving Holiday. As a result of this visit, I'm strongly considering canceling my wine club membership due to our treatment in the tasting room. The owner's wife was so concerned with the two other groups (one of whom entered after we did) tasting, that she really couldn't be bothered with us. She was more concerned with selling a membership to one group and chatting up the ones who came in behind us. Her first question to us was whether we belonged to the wine club at Doffo and that seemed to determine how she was going to treat us. Sadly, she is an incredibly poor ambassador for your winery and I will more than likely be canceling my membership. Your wines are not inexpensive, and there are plenty of other wineries in Temecula providing a higher level of customer service with wines of equal quality.
