A fun-filled family day in Temecula wine country with live music, entertainment and (of course) wine.

Temecula, Southern California’s wine country, has over 40 wineries with more projected to come in the next year. It is a beautiful place filled with rolling vineyards, hot air balloons and award-winning wines. With ample opportunities for wine tasting and live entertainment, Temecula wine country is an adult’s playground, but did you know that most of the wineries in Temecula are kid-friendly?

Yes, you can bring the family for a relaxing and exciting day in wine country for wine and live music! Although most of the wineries do allow kids (to some extent), I have put together a list of the best kid-friendly wineries in Temecula that have live music and family activities, in addition of course to award-winning wine.
