Temecula is your next top destination for a day of wine tasting. Visitors can pick the grapes, then go to the quaint Old Town Temecula, where you can visit the Temecula Valley Museum for a historical tour.
Step down to the heart of Temecula’s Wine Country which includes many wineries that you can visit at your own leisure from one of the many wine tour companies in the area. Go for the Wilson Creek Winery and the red-focused Monte De Oro Winery before heading towards Maurice Car’rie Winery for a tasting and a loaf of the vineyard’s famous sourdough bread, oozing with brie.
Another popular Temecula activity is riding in a hot air balloon. There is no better way to end your day in Temecula than by sailing over the town’s vineyards at sunset.
