The core vineyards of Wilson Creek are attached to and located just north of the winery.

It is an ever growing and changing vineyard with the oldest sections planted in 1970. Its uncanny, but the general overall outline of all Wilson Creek Winery Blocks is heart shaped. 



Block 8-  About 6 acres of Syrah, a remaining section of which was planted in 1970, is located at the extreme northern point of Wilson Creek along Barenda Road. The vineyard sees an abundance of sunlight throughout the growing season. Small sections have been replanted since 1970.


WINEMAKER - Kestutis Vizgirda

Kestutis "Gus" Vizgirda believes the secret to good winemaking begins in the vineyard. That's 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 a number of 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 many 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.
