Rancho Capistrano Winery in San Juan Capistrano, California is more than just a winery, it’s a restaurant, event space, and most importantly it’s a family. Owned and operated by the Franson Family Winery LLC, RCW is at its core a community centered around great food, wine, and music.
Rancho Capistrano Winery’s location and atmosphere is part of the reason why people visit and keep returning. The swaying palm trees and occasional swallow seen over the Spanish walls enclose the main patio and offer the perfect stage for the winery’s main attraction, it’s food and wine.
Seated at RCW in the heart of old California, San Juan Capistrano, tasting wine and food produced here in this great state evokes a local pride for the coastal ranchos that once dominated this landscape. Just behind the patio and through the callejon, there lies historic El Camino Real and the San Juan Capistrano Mission where wine was first introduced into California.
Rancho Capistrano Winery is not nostalgic but a modern remanent of where Orange County came from and where it is going. Here we produce Californian wines, serve Californian food, and are continuing Californian culture and tradition. This is what makes RCW more than just a winery, but a destination.
