Focus on Wines

Visitors to Temecula Valley will encounter an array of authentic wineries, each with its own unique focus. Some specialize in grapes from the Rhône region of France, including Viognier, Marsanne, Roussanne, Syrah, Grenache, Mourvedre, and more. Several wineries emphasize Italian wine grapes, including Vermentino, Arneis, Sangiovese, Montepulciano, and even lesser-known varieties such as Aglianico, Barbera and Falanghina. Still others specialize in Malbec, the prized grape that hails from France, but became famous in recent years as the signature grape of Argentina. 

Temecula Valley wines are produced in a wide range of styles to suit myriad preferences. Guests can find light and crisp whites, rosés, luscious and buttery Chardonnays, rich, age-worthy reds, and classic-method sparkling wines, as well as sweet and fortified selections. Chardonnay and bold Bordeaux-style blends alongside wineries whose specialty is their tireless experimentation. 

Temecula Valley wines regularly receive high accolades in wine competitions, including many Double Gold, Gold and Best in Class awards; South Coast Winery, the region’s largest producer, has been named California’s Winery of the Year in the state fair wine competition a total of four times – more than any other winery in the competition’s history.
