Last year, around this same time, we awoke to Temecula Valley Wine Country blanketed by a thin layer of snow. Although it does get cold in Temecula Valley, we rarely get snow! Plan your visit in January, check out some of the great events and maybe, just maybe, you’ll get lucky enough to experience a winter wonderland in wine country!
