Temecula Valley Wineries
Savor Merlots, Zinfandels, and More
Located just a half hour outside Perris, the Temecula Valley wineries offer an unrivaled wine tasting experience right here in Riverside County. Oenophiles will be thrilled to explore over 30 wineries and discover more than 50 different wine varietals grown within Temecula Valley.
The microclimate of Temecula Valley Wine Country has resulted in a thriving American Viticultural Area that has blossomed in Southern California since the late 1960s. Spring and summer offer the most idyllic, verdant scenery in the Valley, while the bustling harvest season takes over August through mid-October. Most of the wineries are located within a short drive of each other and local transportation services are available to shuttle visitors from one award-winning destination to the next. Each winery provides a unique experience and prices, hours of operation, and exact offerings may vary—some even feature a guided vineyard tour.
Beyond an impressive number of wineries, the Valley is home to several gift shops, fine dining restaurants, and more. Indulge with an al fresco lunch or dinner at The Restaurant at Lioness Cellars, The Pinnacle Restaurant at Falkner Winery, or Meritage at Callaway. Adventurous visitors can also enjoy the area’s hot air balloon tours, which provide an aerial view of these expansive vineyards.
The friendly at Red Lion Inn & Suites Perris is happy to help you plan a memorable day trip to Temecula Valley.
