Wilson Creek Winery to Host Formal Wedding for Triple Amputee Couple

Marine Cpl. Juan Dominguez and Wife Alexis Will Celebrate Wedding Vows April 27

ImageTemecula Wine Country—Wilson Creek Winery is pleased to become the latest in the group of organizations and people who have helped make the life of Marine Corporal Juan Dominguez a little bit better.

On Saturday, April 27, Wilson Creek Winery will host the “formal” wedding of Juan and Alexis Dominguez. The wedding will be held in the Tuscan-inspired gardens at the winery followed by a reception for about 150 guests, all as a part of Wilson Creek’s Giving Back to the Community Program.

“Our family has always been strong supporters of our troops,” says Bill Wilson, President and CEO at Wilson Creek Winery. “And those who have been wounded are very special to us. We do anything we can to thank them for their service.”

Cpl. Dominguez lost an arm and both of his legs when he came upon an Improvised Explosive Device while on patrol in Afghanistan in mid-October, 2010. He returned home a triple-amputee whose life would be forever changed. But not all of that change was bad. He met his wife, Alexis, at a home coming event for his Battalion the following April. A year later they were married in a civil ceremony in San Diego and that same year he became a candidate to be a recipient of a new home by the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Tower Foundation.

“When the foundation approached me about building a house, I had to choose a location,” says Juan. “Temecula looked like a great place to live and it was close to where I go for therapy in San Diego and I have some roots in L.A. so it was perfect.”

In January of 2012, actor and musician Gary Sinise asked the Temecula City Council if he and his Lt. Dan Band could play a benefit concert at City Hall to help his foundation (Gary Sinise Foundation) contribute to building a house for a wounded veteran who wanted to move to Temecula. The concert was held in March and along with other donations raised enough money to build Cpl. Dominguez and his wife Alexis a “smart home,” in Temecula.

“During the concert one of the people from the foundation approached us and said that Bill Wilson would like to donate their Wilson Creek Winery venue for our wedding,” recalls Alexis. “It was very kind and we are excited about having our wedding there. We can’t thank them enough.”

Wilson Creek Winery offers regular specials for military personnel including a standard military discount for wines and wine tasting. The winery is proud to be “the unofficial /official winery of the US Navy “filling special orders of custom labeled wine for many of the Navy ships visiting San Diego. In addition, each year Wilson Creek honors the Navy’s “Sailor of the Year” Awards Program at the Winery.

“Honoring the military is a tradition at Wilson Creek,” says Wilson. “When I heard this very special couple wanted to someday have a formal wedding, I didn’t have to think about it. We are all looking forward to the wedding, and I promise that it will be an event to remember.”

Wilson Creek Winery offers a full-service wedding facility featuring delicious wine-country cuisine, fine wines, and breathtaking views of the vineyards, mountains, and gardens. There is a dramatic open-air gazebo for ceremonies and an expert staff of wedding professionals is available to coordinate every aspect of the special event.  The facility welcomes up to 400 guests per event.

September is California Wine Month

Glass of Almond

A cool glass of Almond Champagne on a warm summer day…ahhh!

In the wine world we like to think that every month is wine month, but more specifically, September is recognized as California Wine Month. What does this mean you ask? It’s your free pass to drink more wine this month, from California that is!

Here at Wilson Creek Winery, we are honoring this wonderful month by serving  a glass of  delightful sparkling wine with every entree purchase at the Creekside Grille. (Don’t see this advertised anywhere, that’s ok, just mention this to your server and they’ll know what to do) Cheers!

Check out this fun article from the North County Times about California wines, wineries and Temecula…

WINE COUNTRY NOTES: It’s the most wonderful time of the year.

Oh My Gosh!

What do Temecula Valley’s Wine Country and Wilson Creek Winery have in common? They are home to the famous,”Oh My Gosh” Almond Champagne!

If you’ve never had it, you HAVE to try it! If you’ve had it, then you know what I’m talking about. We call it the “Oh My Gosh” champagne because that is the typical impression a person gets when trying it for the first time. Temecula Valley ChampagneThis stuff is so good that people from all over the country have it shipped out for special occasions and everyday happenings alike.

Definitely a popular choice for wedding toasts, I know a couple who drove from central California to Temecula just to fill their convertible Mini Cooper to the brim with cases of Almond Champagne for their daughter’s wedding. Now if that isn’t love, I don’t know what is!

Almond champagne is wonderful on its own, but goes great with other things as well. Next time you’re in the area and decide to visit us try the Almond-tini in a chocolate cup. A favorite around here, the Almond-tini is Almond Champagne mixed with a bit of our Decadencia (chocolate port dessert wine), served in an edible Dutch chocolate shot glass – Salut! Then there’s the Almond Slushie, our version of a frozen margarita, so to speak, minus the tequilla, add Almond Champagne and voila! The Almond Slushies are heaven-sent in the warm, Temecula summer months.

We love this champagne so much that we wanted to make it easy for you to get no matter where you are. So now you can find our Almond Champagne, along with our Peach Bellini (Almond Champagne and natural peach flavorings) and Orange Mimosa (Almond Champagne and natural orange flavorings), in 23 states! If you’re a California resident you may see us on the shelves of a Costco, Vons, BevMo, Albertson’s, and Walmart (to name a few) near you.
