Temecula Valley, located in Southern California, is about an hour north of San Diego. The vineyards are prolific and produce quality grapes for wonderful wine. As one frequently hears, “Wine is made in the vineyard.” Wine lovers will discover quality wines and a friendly welcome to the area wineries.
Temecula wineries know how to make quality wines and how to celebrate Valentine’s Day. In addition, one can book a room at the Pechanga Casino a few minutes away from wineries. When not tasting wines at a winery, enjoy the casino gaming tables or the many slot machines at Pechanga.
