Wine Country Information Page
The Temecula Valley is located in a veritable paradise which encompasses an area including over 35,000 acres of rolling hills and vineyards. Rural in nature, sustainable in farming practices and including an agricultural preserve known as the Citrus/Vineyard zone, the Temecula Valley is widely recognized as the ‘jewel’ of Riverside County. Centrally located and within an hour drive from San Diego, Orange County or the Palm Springs area. Each of our family owned wineries are easily accessible and situated just close enough in proximity to one another to make your wine country tour a breeze.
Equestrian – Horses can be found throughout the Temecula Valley Wine Country. There are about 2,830 acres of large estate lots with custom home sites with a mixture of both existing and new luxury homes and both large commercial horse ranches and small independent ranches. The landscape consists of local roads mostly unpaved. Even on paved roads absent are the streetlights, sidewalk, curbs and gutters. Instead the property owners enjoy a rural lifestyle, horseback riding trials, stables and other equestrian services and amenities. It is with much pride in their ranches and horses that some of the equestrian facilities hold national and international competition events. This picturesque equestrian area is easily woven into Wine Country as it offers a charm, activity and amenity that enhances the draw for Wine Country. Several of the wineries exist in or adjacent to riding trails offer hitching post for riders that want to come in off the trail to wine taste or just to take a break.
Wineries – The Temecula Valley Wine Country encompasses an area of more than 17,600 acres. Thousands of these acres, which feature vineyards, have assisted in the development and production of the award-winning wines produced here. Tourists may enjoy winery accommodations such as wine-tasting, guided tours, lodging, restaurants and special facilities for weddings or other events. There are well over 30 wineries located within the Temecula Valley Wine Country.
Temecula Valley Balloon & Wine Festival
Festival demographics include visitors from San Diego, Riverside, Los Angeles and Orange counties with 38,000 people attending during the Festival weekend. The Temecula Valley Balloon & Wine Festival offers a “Festival within a Festival,” with top-name concerts, wine tasting in the Wine Gardens, Kids Faire, Arts & Crafts and Commercial exhibits and the Food Court. Wine tasting features different premium wines from numerous Temecula Valley wineries as well as others from Southern California.
Make your Festival experience memorable and book a hot air balloon flight. Your flight will begin at sunrise as the balloon lifts gently into the sapphire skies above Lake Skinner. Balloons cannot “steer” and must fly with the gentle breezes of the air currents. You could find yourself back at the Festival grounds or floating gracefully over the Temecula Valley wine country. Either way your pilot will return you safely to the Festival and an afternoon of fun.
