Temecula Wine Tasting
There are few better ways to escape the stress of the 9 to 5 grind than heading out into wine country to relax and sample a few delicious wines. If you are in California, you are pretty much spoiled for choice when it comes to wine trails, but if you are looking for something truly relaxing, with a liberal sprinkling of history thrown in, a Temecula wine tasting trip is definitely something that you should look into. You could simply visit the historic old town, or you could take to the road on a self-guided tour of the wineries that lie just outside.
While many of the regions in the state cater to those who like a specific type of wine, Temecula has become somewhat famous for the astonishing array of varietals on offer in their wineries and tasting rooms. It’s really not stretching the truth at all to say that there really is a wine to suit every single taste in this part of California. There are currently about 30 or so wineries in operation in Temecula Valley, and they run the gamut from well-known names to small family-owned locations that are an absolute joy to visit.
This is certainly not the largest wine region that you will ever visit, but it’s the variety of products and experiences that make it so very special. There are a few different trails that wend their way through the region, and even those are totally different. The trails on the east are where you will find the better known winemakers, while the west is home to the smaller boutique style wineries, where you are likely to get a more personal experience. The Temecula wine tasting experience that you choose really does depend on what it is you want to get out of your trip.
If you are planning on staying for a day or two, the old town is certainly a very good place to lay your hat. Temecula is well aware of the important role that wine plays in their tourist trade, which is why there is always something going on in town. There are a number of fantastic restaurants that get creative with their menus so that they can create some memorable food and wine pairings. With more than 50 different varietals made in the region, chefs certainly have a lot of options when it comes to culinary creativity.
There are also plenty of wine related events on the Temecula social calendar, which come on top of the fun things that the wineries offer to the people that come to visit. The vast majority of wineries in the area are open from 10am t 5pm, but we do recommend that you check each one individually s that you do not risk being disappointed. With so many different wines and wineries to choose from, disappointment is not a feeling that you will very often experience in this part of Southern California. Temecula is a wine tasting trip where everyone in the group is sure to walk away satisfied.
