Why visit Temecula Valley wine country?

May 17th, 2010

Bill Wilson, Wilson Creek WineryWhat makes Temecula Valley Wine Country so special? Wow, let me count the ways. First, I have to go on record saying I am very humbled and honored to be serving as the President of this dynamic organization for a second term. Sometimes I feel like I have no idea what I am doing as President — but I am doing it with all the gusto I got!

And this is the number one thing that makes Temecula Valley Wine Country so special — the passion and gusto of our people. I am very fortunate to work with so many great, talented people in Temecula Valley wine country, who are all striving to create a warm, friendly and exciting wine tasting experience for our visitors and local fans.

Every day, I am amazed by the improvements and growth I see around me at our Temecula wineries. New vineyards, new wineries (both grand and small), and a passion to continually produce better and better wines from quality wine grapes. The energy, excitement and passion that exuded by the winemakers, winery owners and hardworking staff that work and live in our Wine Country is highly contagious.

There are wonderful wines and beautiful wineries in every wine region, but the common bond that runs through the veins of the people of Temecula Valley is incredible. Why? It’s not so much about who we are as who we are not. You won’t find a a bunch of highly successful movie stars, media moguls, sports stars, rich dot-com retirees, or heirs to any empire. We are just a dedicated group of hard working folks who are following our passion for this crazy business of growing and producing the best wine we can possibly make.

More often than not, you will see owners throughout our Wine Country working in some capacity around their winery. In my case there are eight (yes eight!) family members actively involved and floating around Wilson Creek Winery. And don’t forget our hard working Golden Retrievers, who make everyone feel warm and welcome.  So, if you are looking for a chance to try some great wines, meet the people involved in making them, and discover something great in your own backyard,come visit us in Temecula Valley wine country! We are around.
