What to Expect
Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Frangipani Estate Winery

Departing at 1 pm for wine country, the tour follows a scenic route along the De Portola Wine Trail with our engaging Destination Temecula guide sharing entertaining information about the culture of wine tasting, quirky nuances of our area, the historical significance of the valley in the development of Southern California over the last two centuries, and the reasons grape cultivation flourishes in the Temecula Valley appellation.
The first stop is Frangipani Estate Vineyard and Winery, a family-owned and operated vintner specializing in bold reds, additionally offering a variety whites and blushes.
Guests will marvel at the view as they sit down outdoors, weather permitting, on a covered patio overlooking a very serene valley, with Mount Palomar on the distant horizon. If the weather is inclement, guests will appreciate a protected, indoor setting.
The staff offers friendly, informative table service, pouring wine samples as you sit down and relax while soaking in the incredible view.
A delicious, individually packaged upscale picnic lunch is enjoyed at this first stop while engaging in stimulating conversation with your tour mates, many who often become new best friends by the end of the day!
With advance notice, vegetarians and those with specific dietary needs are respectfully accommodated.


Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Wilson Creek Winery

The next destination is high energy, guest-centric Wilson Creek Winery, perhaps Temecula’s most popular vintner. A wide tasting roster is highlighted by their signature item, Almond Champagne!
An optional vineyard and production area tour lead by your Destination Temecula guide provides those who would like to participate a fascinating behind-the-scenes experience, often highlighted by a chat on the crush pad or in the production area with the winemaker.
Play your cards right and you might sample a tasting from the tanks!
Free time then allows exploration of the wonderful setting for photography throughout the beautiful grounds, and purchase discounts provided to DESTINATION TEMECULA guests.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Callaway Vineyard & Winery

Finish the afternoon with a tasting of estate grown wines, only sold on property. This beautiful, casually sophisticated setting offers stunning views of the rugged terrain surrounding our valley.
