The best tips to visit Temecula's wineries now.

Barbara Fava

The San Diego area is well-known for its beautiful beaches and wineries.

Something that you might want to try if you have the chance to take a break from your chaotic life is to embark on a glorious visit to one of the renowned wineries in Temecula and Murrieta.

The following tips will help you choose the right winery to visit on your trip.

1. Murrieta

  1. Murrieta

The first group of wineries you might want to visit are those in Murrieta. 

Because they are close to San Diego, traveling there is very convenient. 

These wineries have won numerous accolades, such as being named Wine Press champions.

Some of them have even belonged to the Wine Association of America for three years straight. 

Murrieta’s wineries also offer wine tasting tours, often called wine walks.

The highlight of this type of tour is the chance to taste wines from all over the country and even see some historical gold-rush sites.

You can book your preferred tour day of wine tasting on their website simply by filling out an application form.

2. Temecula

The other wineries that you might want to visit are located around Temecula and its surrounding areas.

This area is called the Grapevine Corridor, and it is a region of great tasting wines that spread east along Highway 78, from San Diego County to Oregon.

If you plan on visiting several of these wineries, I suggest booking a package so that you can enjoy all of these wonderful sights in one trip. 

I recommend booking with a specialized tour company, since they have lower prices as compared to going on your own.

The guides that accompany you to these wineries are very knowledgeable, and they know a lot about the wines. 

Many wineries also offer rooms if you wish to stay overnight.

3. Three sections in the wineries.

Another tip is that if you visit Temecula wineries, many of them have three sections.

The old world winemaking section, the revolution one, and a small area for wine tasting.

The tasting room will also let you experience some of the most renowned wines that they make.

4. The food.

Of course, you can't plan a trip without thinking about having great food as well.

Luckily, Temecula and the surrounding areas are famous for their all-inclusive experience aimed to make unforgettable memories.

Plenty of restaurants, coffee places, Temecula, and Murrieta will offer great snacks and food to pair up with their superb wines.

Some of the great-tasting restaurants in the area offer a tour as part of their menu.

Many of them are winery partners, which means that they can offer you some luxurious food during your exciting visit to the wineries.

5. Natural paradise.

You will be surprised if you check out the different plants found in the area, starting from avocado trees to pomegranate trees.

You will also find many animals.

Rabbits, geese, fawns, as well as majestic birds, and squirrels are living in the area.

Many residents in the San Diego area can't wait to go back there again soon, and hopefully, next time, without the COVID-19 restrictions.

That definitely would be one of the best experiences that I can think about when it comes to travels.

Enjoy your stay in Temecula, and do not forget to bring your masks: in the establishments is still mandatory to have them with you as the pandemic is still going on.

There are different regulations for indoor and outdoor wine-tasting.

Please make sure to consult the place where you are heading, to be sure about the current rules.
