It’s harvest season in wine country, and October holds many exciting and fun events for you to experience Temecula’s wine region.

All Winery Passport Event: 21st Annual Harvest Celebration Barrel Tasting Weekend – November 5 & 6, 2011

Simply purchase a passport ticket for a self-guided tour of all the Temecula Valley wineries; each stop includes wine-tasting, delicious small plates of food, and a special Best Winery Scarecrow Facebook contest you can participate in!  The winner will receive four tickets to the World of Wine 2012 event.
