The Ultimate Guide to the Temecula Valley Wineries

July 17, 2017

Welcome to Southern Californiaโ€™s wine country, the Temecula Valley wineries. If you thought Sonoma and Napa Valley was all California had to offer in terms of wineries and vineyards, I’m pleased to inform you, they’re not. At the Temecula Valley wineries you can expect award-winning wines, tasty restaurants, and cozy bed and breakfast inns. I’ve put together everything you need to know for an enjoyable visit. ๐Ÿ™‚

 

The Ultimate Guide to the Temecula Valley Wineries

Location

Google Maps

The Temecula Valley wineries are located off I-15, not far from Los Angeles, Orange County, and San Diego County. If you live in Southern California, itโ€™s the perfect weekend getaway! Rancho California Road is the main drag where youโ€™ll find all the wineries.

The Temecula Valley Wineries

Temecula Valley hosts almost 40 wineries, many located off Rancho California Road. However, I’d recommend diving into side streets for some hidden gems.

 

Winery Hours: The hours may vary, but most wineries are open daily for visitors from 10am โ€“ 5pm.

 

Here are some of my personal favorites:

  • Vindemia Vineyard & Winery (Google Maps) –ย Vindemiaย Winery is quite the unique find! Located off the main road (Rancho California Road), this vineyard has some of the best wines in the valley. And since it is located up on a hill, there is also a lovely sitting area with gorgeous views over Temecula Valley.

  • Wilson Creek Winery & Vineyards (Google Maps) Wilson Creek is a charming vineyard with a nice grassy area near the creek to have a picnic and enjoy your wine. My favorite are the sparkling wines with fun flavors like as Tahitian Vanilla and Coconut Nui.

  • Wiens Family Cellar (Google Maps) – If you like red wine, then Wiens is the place to go! For a more exclusive experience, have a seated tasting in the cellar room with their reserve and limited edition red wines.

Explore Old Town Temecula

Old Town Temecula has a rustic-country charm thatโ€™s a great place to go for antiques, museums, and bars and restaurants. Be sure to explore the one-of-a-kind shops such as Temeculaโ€™s Lavender Co.!

Take a Hot Air Balloon Ride

Who wouldnโ€™t want a hot air balloon ride over Temecula wine country? I would highly recommend California Dreaminโ€™ as a great company to go with. I tried to go a few times, but unfortunately wasnโ€™t able to set sail with them due to weather. But if you do go, just remember to bundle up. Those sunrise tours can be chilly!

Every time I read this verse I fall in love with it all over again. ๐Ÿ˜ How crazy is it that when everything around us is shaky, God is stable. He is the one we can rely on. His love for us remains, no matter what. ๐Ÿ’– As I look at these gorgeous mountains, I'm reminded of His love and faithfulness to us. ๐Ÿ’•โ„๏ธ
