Two blocks of Malbec have been planted at Wilson Creek. The older of the two blocks was planted on the extreme western edge of the vineyard and the second on the eastern side. Malbec is used as its own wine variety and is used in our Meritage blend.

Block 15-  Located on the extreme western edge of the vineyard it was grafted on Mourvèdre in 2011. An addition planting was added to its upper edge a few years later increasing the block to about 2.5 acres. The southern border of this block sweeps sharply downward into a dry wash exposing the grapes to possible late season frost damage. The grapes grow well here and produce a good balanced grape.

Block 18- A small block of about 1 acre, located on the left side of the upper parking lot. Planted in 2013 in the typical single cordon technique seen throughout Temecula. Small production of Malbec is primarily used in Malbec and Meritage. A tiny section of Malbec can be seen at the extreme corner of Rancho California and Hilt Roads.

Kestutis "Gus" Vizgirda believes the secret to good winemaking begins in the vineyard. That is why throughout the growing season you will find him touring the rows of varietals and envisioning the kinds of wines he will produce from the harvest.  For over two decades, Vizgirda has worked at many local wineries, working with some of the Valley's best winemakers to refine his craft. Today, he has developed his own unique approach to making wine and has won gold medals for several of his varietals.

In addition to serving as Wilson Creek's Winemaker, Vizgirda teaches wine classes at Mt. San Jacinto College and San Diego State University Extended Studies campus. He is also a judge at several local and international wine competitions.
