Less than an hour and a half drive from the Coachella Valley is Southern California Temecula Valley Wine Country. With nearly 50 wineries, it offers boutique and full-service wine resorts that are friendly, relaxed, and unpretentious. The quality of Temecula Valley wines is made possible by a unique microclimate that features morning mist, warm midday sun, cooling ocean breezes, and crisp starry nights. This plus granite-based soil makes Temecula Valley ideal for growing grapes and creating award-winning premium wines, recognized by wine connoisseurs internationally. You could easily spend days in Temecula Valley exploring and wine tasting among the vineyards or do what we did and pop over for an amazing afternoon lunch (with lots of gluten-free options on the menu) at Avensole Winery’s Marketplace Restaurant. Nestled along the scenic Rancho California ridgeline in Southern California Wine Country, Avensole Winery’s sprawling vineyard estate has been producing some of Temecula Valley’s finest grapes for more than four decades. And they are committed to continuing the tradition of producing hand-crafted premium wines while offering paired culinary excellence in their Marketplace Restaurant.
