Keyways Vineyards & Winery
Early California style winery in Temecula Valley
Napa Valley & Sonoma Wine Tasting Tours
An early California style winery on the off-the-beaten-path side of Temecula Valley, Keyways Vineyard and Winery sits on the edge of horse country.
Recognizing the regions potential, Carl Key was an early promoter of the Temecula Valley wine region, establishing his winery in 1989.
Keyways became the only woman owned and managed winery in Southern California when Terri Pebley Delhamer purchased it in 2004. In 2011 she sold to a South Pasadena Investment group, Silverton Partners Inc. but Delhamer continues to be involved as a “consulting partner.”
Young winemaker David Raffaele, who spent several years in Italy, crafts wines that reflect the unique terroir of Temecula Valley.
