    Built in 1914, it was the first poured cement building constructed in Inland California. Mr. Vail called it his "pawn shop". Robbed only once in 1930. Upstairs featured a community center and dance hall. Closed in 1914, now a Mexican restaurant.

    Wine Tasting tours and wedding places in Temecula

    Sister married in a Temecula Winery, California

    Wineries are aplenty in Temecula and the atmosphere is fun and less commercialized than other popular wineries in the State of California.

    My sister chose to get married in a nice winery in Temecula which has a windmill (Maurice Carrie Winery). The garden wedding was a blast, although on an October night, it was a little bit chilly! But my sister looked radiant and happy...

    There are Temecula wine tours like through http://www.winetastingintemecula.com/ or you can just drive around yourself and look at the list of wineries: http://www.winetastingintemecula.com/

    There are a handful of wineries up here to taste. It is a great day trip. The wine isn't nearly as good as central coast or napa but it's different. Below is a list of some of the wineries and their prices per tasting (as of 12/05).

    Wine tasting prices are shown below per winery:
    Callaway $8
    Thornton $9 - 15 (place makes champagne)
    Churon $8
    Baily $5
    Wilson crk $10 (with coupon $5)
    Falkner $6
    Ponte $10
    Bella Vista $6
    Leonesse $? Tour with tasting
    Stuart Cellars (Picnic area) $10

    Other
    South Coast
    Red Barn
    Stuart Cellars (Picnic area)
    Hart

    We hit up:
    Callaway
    Thornton
    Stuart Cellars
    Palumbo
    Wilson crk

    My favorite place is Thornton. You can go sit down with your friends or family and they'll bring the tastings to your table. They have some very interesting sparkling wines there. TRY the Syrah Champagne! It's great!!!

    Grapefruit Orchards - photo by Beebee

    If you have dreamt of going up in a hot air balloon, Temecula is the place to give it a try! Meet up with one of the balloon companies at a local winery before the sun rises and prepare to experience the landscape dotted with fruit orchards and vineyards. You can see for miles, while floating over tree tops which you can almost reach out and touch. The quiet stillness of the early morning. The changing colors of sunrise, the seemingly transparent mountains in the distance, veiled in mist. These are some of the sights you will enjoy. You will create lasting memories whether you are with family, friends, or solo. Well worth it. After the balloon flight, a danish, glass of champagne and commemorative photo will be yours. You'll have an hour to gather your thoughts before some of the wineries open; you can spend the rest of the day touring them and tasting! Lots of wineries in the area. I went in November 2004. The weather was crisp and sunny. What fun! Make reservations to insure a spot.

    Wine Tasting

    by GinGinCoo Updated Feb 26, 2004

    Wine

    Temecula is famous for its wineries, we boast 17 excellent wineries to chose from, most of them offer free wine tasting (make sure you have a driver who doesnt drink, so he/she can drive you around, or rent a limo!), and some of them charge a low fee like $5 for 5 tastes but you get to keep a souvenier glass (like Callaway Winery). Most if not all of these wineries are located in one street, which is Rancho California Rd so its easy to get there! My personal favorite is Maurice Car'rie Winery, where they have a picnic area and their brie bread is fresh and very yummy!

    Stagecoach Stop at Old Town

    Old Town Temecula was established around 1849, this is where the stagecoaches stops were. Its a lovely area, with lots of shopping, one of its stores is a huge Antique store 3 stories high!, lots of great bargains and antiques if you know how to look for them. There are also excellent restaurants here.

    Old town is where several festivals and shows start, check their schedule when you come to visit. Usually there are car shows, blue grass or country festivals going on.

    There are 13 wineries. My favorite is Thornton Winery.
    First you will enjoy a tour of the winery and then you settle into the tasting room that offers a view of the full cellar and bottling areas. Make sure you do not sample the wine on an empty stomach. There are plenty of places to stop and eat. The view of the vineyards is amazing. Here is one of the wine cellars.

    If you are a golfer, from what I hear their courses are great. Some include Pala Mesa Resort Golf Course, Redhawl Golf CLub,Temecula Creek Inn, and Temeku Hills Golf Course. In addition to golf they have hot air balloon adventure and spas (Glen Ivy Hot Springs Spa).

    Temecula is the "wine country" of San Diego like Napa/Sonoma is for San Francisco. Mt Palomar is one of the venues with beautiful grounds. The tasting room is small but their port is excellent.
