Our Special Selection wines are high quality, limited productions that best exemplify the Callaway legacy. They are easy to drink, food friendly, fun wines that are sure to please most everyone.
Our Winemaker's Reserve wines are for the more discerning palate. Chosen barrel by barrel for richness, depth and complexity these wines are typically bigger, meatier wines that take a bit longer to age.

Nestled in the vineyards of Callaway Winery, Meritage at Callaway offers breathtaking views of Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard and glorious sunsets over the Temecula Valley, not to mention an exceptional menu and light-hearted and spirited hospitality.
