Temecula Wine Country

Get a taste of everything San Diego’s wine region has to offer, from sipping vintages to saying “I do!”



Published:

Tucked in the rolling hills of Riverside County lies the verdant landscape of Temecula Valley, home to 35,000-plus viticultural acres where more than 100 growers have planted 1,500 acres of vineyards. In this sunny countryside, an easy hour from San Diego, you’ll find quaint tasting rooms, farm-to-table eateries, family-owned wineries, sustainable agricultural practices, serene picnic gardens, boutique hotels, and welcoming wine-country hospitality. Award-winning wineries flourish in Temecula Valley, producing Chardonnay, Merlot, and Sauvignon Blanc, along with Mediterranean varietals such as Viognier, Syrah, and Pinot Gris. Sparkling and sweet wines are also a favorite to produce for easy sipping and festive occasions.

Besides tastings and tours at the many charming wineries, visitors can explore the spirit of the Old West on Main Street, ride a hot-air balloon for a bird’s-eye view of the vineyards, spend the day relaxing at a spa, or find vintage treasures in the myriad antique stores.
