What do you do with a beautiful, spacious home with a spectacular view that is sitting vacant and unused? Well, if you’re Mike Janko, you spend six months renovating it and name it Bel Vino House. Mike purchased Stuart Cellars last year and immediately changed the name to Bel Vino Winery. Plans have been drawn up for a brand new tasting room. The 3000 square foot Bel Vino House is now available for weddings, receptions and any number of events. The 360° views truly are stunning. The house has a kitchen any chef would feel at home in. It’s tastefully decorated, and the bride’s room is magnificent. There are flat panel tvs, wet bars and a spacious terrace. Not only that, it’s a short walk to the winery for some tasting.
Over at the winery, change is also evident. There’s an artist’s rendering of the new tasting room. Wine club members have plenty of room to spread out with two new bars in the barrel room. For now, the wines of Stuart Cellars are still being poured with a handful of whites and several serious reds to choose from. If you haven’t been by to see what’s changed at Bel Vino, plan on paying them a visit. 31515 Rancho California Road, Temecula – (951) 676-6414
