The region is known for the vast amount of wineries. The majority of them are in Temecula along with some in Lake Elsinore and Murrieta. Our member growers have made sure that the grapes grown in their vineyards result in quality to condition to be ready to be made into delicious wine. We just celebrated 50 years on 2018 of the Temecula Valley Southern California Wine Country. Visit our wineries or get to purchase it from our restaurants.
