5 Reasons to Visit Temecula Valley During the Week

Friday, January 17th, 2014

Your favorite Southern California wine region is getting busier by the year. What’s a loyal visitor to do? Here are 5 great reasons to visit Temecula Valley wine country on a weekday:

 

1.  10% Off Your Lunch.

Temecula wine country is home to 12 delicious eateries (and counting) and most of these restaurant spots are hot come Saturday & Sunday. Reservations are required and tables are at a premium. Why not dine Monday-Friday and take advantage of the region’s coupon page which offers 10% off your al fresco favorites; including Meritage at Callaway, Creekside Grille at Wilson Creek, Cafe Champagne at Thornton and many more. Bon appetit!

2.  No Lines. Anywhere.

Weekday visitors don’t miss waiting in line for anything in wine country. Forget lines to get into (or out of) the parking lot, waiting for the tasting room staff to come back with your next pour, putting your name in for a table or even the cue for the bathroom. Hello, weekday – goodbye, lines.

3. One-on-One Attention in the Tasting Rooms.

Weekends in any California wine country is always the most popular time to taste. But wine lovers come to the vineyards to experience what they can’t at home in their dining room: a personal, one-on-one experience. When the pace is slower at Temecula Valleys’ wineries, it’s common to strike up a conversation with the tasting room manager who ends up pulling in the winemaker from the barrel room to answer your random question about oak vs. stainless steel aging. On slower afternoons, your server might call the chef out of the kitchen to let you know what local farm your chicken came from. And there’s more time to bond in the tasting room with new friends over your shared love of good vino.

4.  Less Expensive Tastings, 2 for 1 Coupons and Happy Hours.

When it comes to wine tasting, the Monday through Thursday crowd can taste some of the same weekend wine flights for a little less. Indulge in weekday happy hours at favorites like South Coast, Danza del Sol and Ponte; and don’t forget your weekday 2 for 1 tasting coupons to a whole slew of top Temecula wineries.

 

5.  Great Hotel Rates.

Go ahead and spend the night on a Wednesday. Temecula hotels are eager for your mid-week business and they show it with their low weekday rates. Even though Temecula Valley is conveniently located near all major SoCal cities, after a day of touring and tasting, you’ll be safe and sound knowing your hotel room has already been booked – instead of having to gear up for a late-night drive home.

The Story

Owner Jim Carter

In the mid-90s, inspired by the movie “A Walk in the Clouds,” entrepreneur and developer, Jim Carter, fell in love with Temecula Valley and opened South Coast Winery Resort & Spa. South Coast has grown into the largest and one of the most celebrated wineries in all of Southern California and is now celebrating a decade of success this June 2013!

To mark this occasion, South Coast Winery has many special 10–year activities planned throughout the summer, including luxurious getaway and entertainment offerings at the resort. In addition, the popular winery is offering a limited-release, 10-year anniversary wine that will include an artisanal blend of the “best of the best” red varietals grown on the winery’s 600+ acres of sustainable Southern California vineyards.

10-year anniversary festivities will culminate on June 29, 2013, as Go Country 105 FM shines the country music spotlight on South Coast Winery for an After-Party Concert, with top contenders from this summer’s nationwide Texaco Country Music Showdown Competition. Tickets are on sale now at WineResort.com.
