Food: Temecula Valley Wine Tasting

A half hour north of San Diego and an hour South of Palm Springs is a little slice of Napa in Southern California. The Temecula Valley Wine Country is relatively small- about 22 wineries total- but this friendly wine region is welcoming to inexperienced tasters and veterans alike.

Since the wineries tend to be smaller than some of the more commercialized ones elsewhere, you have a fairly good chance of ending up in a conversation with the winemaker or the owner of the winery while tasting. Like most of the wine growing regions, Temecula hosts special events and festivals throughout the year such as the Winter Barrel Tasting every January, Summer Jazz Concert series, and the Harvest Wine Celebration that takes place in November, but any day is a good day to visit, enjoy the beautiful scenery, and taste some terrific wine.
