Destination Temecula: Southern California Wine Country’s Premier Destination Management Company

We invite you to visit southern California’s largest wine-producing area where thirty wineries (with more to open soon) offer individuals unique expressions of their vineyards and winemaking talents. Over 28 varietals flourish in the Temecula Valley with new varietals being planted each year. They are nurtured by the people who make this area their home.

The unique combination of geography, micro-climate and well drained soil conditions produce grapes with outstanding varietal character. Our 1,500 foot elevation makes for cooler summer nights. The cooling ocean breezes that come through a gap in the coastal mountains create the ideal conditions for the grapes to develop full complexity with concentrated flavors.

There is a feeling among wine lovers that a fine wine tastes even better if it is consumed in the region in which it is made. Why don’t you test this theory by coming to visit us and have a bottle of wine with your lunch at any of our wineries’ picnic areas?

Under a vibrant blue sky in typical shirt-sleeve weather, explore the hundreds of antique dealers and unique shops found throughout Old Town Temecula. With the snow-covered San Jacinto Mountains beckoning in the distance, gaze across a beautiful valley of vineyards, orchards, and dramatic terrain. As you sip a varietal on a local winery porch, don’t be surprised if the person you are chatting with just might be the vintner who created it.
