Only an hour South of Orange County and an hour North of San Diego sits one of Southern California’s best kept secrets – the Temecula Valley Wine Country. With over 40 wineries with vineyard covered hills, 30 golf courses, numerous resorts and private estates, Temecula is the perfect destination for your wedding weekend. From wine tasting (of course) to hot air balloon rides, your guests will not have a shortage of things to do for the weekend.
Book a wine tour for your bridal party and family and visit some of the best wineries in town. A knowledgeable guide will not only share the history and information about the wineries, but they will be your designated driver and provide you with a picnic lunch. Enjoy a round of golf at one of our favorite courses, the Temecula Creek Inn’s 27-Hole championship golf course. When you are done for the day, join your family and friends in the Cork | Fire Grill or where you will taste and share a range of inventive menu options. If you don’t golf, how about horseback riding (or a horseback riding wine tour), a hot air balloon ride or shopping in Old Town Temecula? Whether you are looking for an adventure or just relaxing, Temecula offers something for everyone.
And when it comes to your wedding day, imagine getting married overlooking the vineyards and having a 180 year old stone house or a barrel room as your reception location. The only hard decision is going to be deciding which winery to choose! One of our favorites on this list is Temecula Creek Inn, with its 150 year old Stone House and Stone Meadows you have the most gorgeous outdoor backdrop for your wedding celebration. So let’s raise a glass and toast to Temecula!
