Wine Enthusiast 10 Best Wine Travel Destinations 2019

Purpose Statement:

The Temecula Valley Winegrowers Association is a nonprofit regional organization (501 (C) (6) dedicated to promoting the growing and making of quality wine grapes and wine and the interests of wineries and vineyards in the Temecula Valley appellations. We are funded in part by the Temecula Valley Wine and Agricultural Heritage District assessment funds.

Viticultural Area:

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 2,460 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. 

Promotional Materials:

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 Association by email: info@temeculawines.org

Wine Society:

The Temecula Valley Wine Society is a non-profit organization committed to supporting the Temecula Valley wine country.  Members enjoy monthly meetings throughout the year with a goal of making wine fun!  Join them for wine dinners, wine tours, fun day trips and evening tastings.  Wine Society members volunteer support for TVWA events.  For more information, please visit their website at www.tvwinesociety.org.
