Temecula, California is located at the southernmost point of Riverside County. Thanks to its prime location between mountain ranges along with cool ocean breezes, the climate in Temecula Valley is likened to that in the Mediterranean: dry summers, cool winters and little rainfall, that make it perfect for wine making.
Temecula produces hundreds of award-winning wines and currently has over 40 wineries in operation with more popping up every year. That’s a lot of wine to explore and enjoy! It can be overwhelming, so it is best to relax and hand the wheel over to an expert, literally. Temecula has a ton of wine tours, but I have put together a list of five truly unique, best Temecula wine tours that even have lunch included!
You can’t go to all these amazing wineries and not bring back some bottled souvenirs right? For those who want to bring back some choice wine and want to keep it safe on the journey home, check out my guide to wine travel suitcases.
