The Temecula Valley Winegrowers Association is a nonprofit regional organization (501 (C) (6) dedicated to promoting the making and growing of quality wine and winegrapes in the Temecula Valley and South Coast Appellations. Our members produce some of the finest wines and winegrapes in the world.
The ATF established the Temecula AVA (viticultural area) in the Federal Register on October 23, 1984. The TTB renamed the same viticultural area Temecula Valley effective June 18, 2004. The Federal Register lists the official acreage for the Temecula Valley AVA at 33,000 acres. Approximately 1,300 acres are currently planted in commercial vineyards. Within the appellation there are 5,000 acres located in a "protected" area referred to as the Citrus/Vineyard Zone. This area is generally located in and around the Rancho California Road area within the County of Riverside. County guidelines strictly enforce number of acres needed to build a winery, lodging and other limited housing and commercial ventures.
From time to time the Winegrowers Association adds photos and videos to its promotional library. If you are a photographer or videographer who would like your wine country shots featured on our Web site or in one of our many promotional outreach materials, please contact the executive director by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
