Experience Temecula


Live every drop of life to the fullest Unpretentious, easy going and bursting with distinctive flavors and creativity, Temecula Valley is Southern California’s wine country. Tucked in a fertile valley reached in just an hour’s drive from San Diego, Orange County and Palm Springs, Temecula is conveniently close yet feels blissfully world’s away from any urban hustle and bustle. Ten thousand years ago, the region’s original settlers, the Pechanga Band of Native American Indians, named the land Temecula, meaning “place in the sun.” Ranchers and farmers further embraced the region’s agricultural potential in the 1800s, when cattle could be seen grazing for miles. A trace of that rugged, wild western spirit remains embedded in Temecula’s anythingis-possible ethos today, as does the enduring spirit of the Pechanga tribe, who have a large presence in the community.

Top 9

Temecula Valley is a place where you can escape to slow down, sip and savor the good life and soak up that everabundant sunshine. Nearly 50 wineries offer exceptional and compelling tasting experiences that range from rustic to luxurious. A booming craft beer culture, fascinating family-run distilleries and underground speakeasies add to the delicious landscape, where gourmet purveyors thrive and dining has been elevated to an art form. After the sun goes down, you can pump up the volume and tap into energetic nightlife and lively entertainment. The bars and clubs of Old Town go off on weekends—including the West Coast’s largest country music venue, Temecula Stampede. A destination in and of itself, Pechanga Resort Casino ranks among the largest resort casinos in the country.

South Coast Winery

And charming, historic Vail Headquarters sets the stage for family-friendly outdoor concerts and festive seasonal events in the heart of the region’s ranching heritage. To help you get the lay of the land, we’ve organized this guide by three key districts: Temecula Valley Wine Country, Old Town Temecula and Pechanga Resort Casino. We introduce you to some of our Makers & Mavericks, dig deeper into our culinary scene and highlight the building blocks of a quintessential Temecula Valley itinerary. Whether you’re looking to live it up for a celebratory weekend, seeking a romantic escape or reuniting with friends and family, here’s to savoring every last drop of every day!

Meet Our Makers & Mavericks

These are just some of the many amenities and distinguishing features that have earned Temecula Valley Wine Country accolades as a global wine destination from the likes of Wine Enthusiast magazine and Trip Advisor. As distinctive as their individual experiences are, one common thread that ties Temecula wineries together is an unstuffy, approachable attitude. Here, all are welcome and encouraged to dip a toe into the world of wine—no experience necessary!

Temecula is a community of makers and mavericks, and that rings especially true in the culinary arena. The outposts created by this sampling of alchemists make excellent additions to any wine country itinerary: •

Take your wine country picnic to the next level with one of Gina LaMora’s epic Grazing Theory lavish charcuterie boards featuring artisanal cheeses and premium quality meats.

Sample Thom Curry’s Temecula Olive Oil Company extra virgin olive oils and vinegars at their Old Town tasting room or book an educational ranch tour.

Try locally made, small-batch artisan spirits at Galway Spirits Distillery, the latest project from entrepreneur Ken Smith, owner of Galway Downs. If you’d like to get hands on, their master distiller leads immersive workshops.

Stock up on exotic spices, custom blended rubs, loose leaf teas, salts and more at Sue Kelly’s Old Town Spice & Tea Merchants and bring a taste of Temecula home with you.

Breath in the relaxing aroma of Jan Schneider’s locally grown lavender at Temecula Lavender Co., where you can browse European-inspired bath, beauty, home and kitchen products that integrate the fragrant, healing herb.

The local wine culture dates back to 1968, when the first commercial vineyards were planted by the Cilurzo family. They saw the region’s potential for viticulture and the production of world class wines. As the wine industry took root and grew, Temecula Valley was officially designated an American Viticultural Area (AVA) in 1984. Today, nearly 50 wineries are nestled throughout the valley, forming three established, easy-to-navigate wine trails—Rancho California, Calle Contento and De Portola—with a few other hidden gems found off these beaten paths.

6 Signature Wine+ Experiences

Thanks to well-draining soils and Mediterranean climate marked by cool, misty mornings and warm, dry afternoons and chilly nights, Temecula is well-suited to Italian, Spanish and French grape varietals. Among the more than two dozen varieties that thrive here are wine grapes like Sangiovese, Montepulciano, Tempranillo and Vermentino, along with well-known classics like Syrah, Viognier, Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay.

There’s nothing traditional about Temecula Valley Wine Country. We have the creative freedom to do things a little differently here and that’s exactly what keeps visitors coming back for more. For a true taste of Temecula, be sure to try at least one of these signature wine country experiences. 1. Take a hot air balloon flight at sunrise for a breathtaking birds’ eye view of wine country, and toast to your adventure over local bubbles when you come back down to earth. 2. Feel the wind in your hair on a guided tour with SoCal Sidecars, the world’s first and only fleet of tandem motorcycle sidecars— perfect for a romantic party of two or group of couples. 3. If you have a larger group, you’ll have a blast on an all-inclusive Cable Car Wine Tour in a historic, open-air, 1914 restored San Francisco cable car. Tours include three or four winery stops and lunch. 4. Sip and swim at The Pool at BOTTAIA, where you can reserve a cabine (Italian-style changing rooms) and chaise lounges for a full or half day of refreshing fun under the sun surrounded by beautiful vineyards. 5. Rent Borrow Our Bikes’ e-bikes for an easy-breezy self-guided wine country tour on two wheels and take advantage of our new bike trail network connecting Old Town and Wine Country. 6. Channel Temecula’s past as a stagecoach stop and take a horse drawn tour through rolling vineyards with Temecula Carriage Company. 10 V i s i t Te m e c u l a Va l l e y. c o m

Many wineries are family-run, boutique style operations, and it’s not uncommon to meet the winemakers or owners when visiting tasting rooms. Temecula wineries tend to produce a limited number of cases of each vintage, which means they prioritize selling directly to consumers at the wineries. So, if you fall in love with a particular wine or winery, shipping is available to most states and joining a wine club is a great way to stay connected and get access to exclusive releases, events and other perks. However, nothing beats an in-person visit to this exciting wine destination. continued on page 14

ENHANCING LIVES ONE BOTTLE AT A TIME It started with a simple idea: “let’s make it a family project.” The year was 1996 and Rosie and Gerry Wilson had just retired from their careers as cooking show host and financial planner respectively when one of their grown children suggested going into the wine business. After much discussion, and research, the Wilsons, along with three of their children with emerging families of their own, planted their dreams of a winery in the fertile soil of the Temecula Valley Wine Country. Today, the roots of the Wilson Family dream are alive and well in a winecentered environment like no other in the Temecula Valley. The Wilson’s family project is now one of the most popular wine destinations in Southern California with more than 3,000 people visiting every week and more than 140,000+ cases of wine sold around the country each year. At the heart of this effort is the attention to family and hospitality. There is rarely a moment when a Wilson Family member is not on the property and Matriarch Rosie Wilson is often seen walking one of the family Golden Retrievers through the grounds greeting people and talking with guests. From the beginning, Wilson Creek has focused on developing wines that “communicate” with people. From its breakout Almond Sparkling Wine, and its ever-growing family of effervescent delights, to bold new age varietals, Wilson Creek wines continue to break new ground in vinicultural circles. Wilson Creek wines have won prestigious awards every year since 2002 including many rated 90+ by Wine Enthusiast. In a blind tasting for the “People’s Choice Awards”, Wilson Creek’s Petite Sirah was deemed “Best Red Wine in the Temecula Valley.”

The variety of wines at Wilson Creek is paired with a healthy dose of hospitality. As a destination winery, Wilson Creek is ideal for weddings, corporate and special events, and family celebrations. In addition to the daily events and tasting activities, the winery offers a full-service restaurant with an expansive patio, Creekside garden area, exclusive accommodations, and private labeled wines. The simple pleasure of enjoying wine goes to the heart of the mission at Wilson Creek with a goal to provide an atmosphere that creates a fun experience through connecting with people while enjoying a wide selection of wine. The Wilson family has built an extended-family community around the sharing of wine, food and hospitality, turning visitors into friends and wine lovers into ambassadors for the brand. www.WilsonCreekWinery.com

Situated on 112 pristine acres, Carter Estate Winery and Resort offers our guests an unforgettable experience. With patios that are steps from our working vineyards, here you can sip morning coffee while watching hot air balloons float above the vines. Our beautifully designed bungalows and suites provide privacy and luxury in the heart of wine country.

The tasting room is a unique experience in the Temecula Valley Wine Country, beautifully appointed award-winning private tasting room and a superb collection of award winning wines.

Here at Carter Estate Winery and Resort, we are one of the valley’s only sparkling wine producers in the Méthode Champenoise. Enjoy a seated tour through our tasting menu from sparkling to dessert, along with olive oils from olives grown right outside the tasting room doors and produced locally here in Temecula.

When it comes to planning your wine touring adventures, if you’re new to wine tasting, it’s recommended to have a designated driver or, better yet, take a guided tour. Plan to stop at three to four wineries in a day and take advantage of fabulous amenities like onsite restaurants and entertainment. For smaller parties, reservations are generally recommended but not required.

“Game On” with Mario Lopez Actor and television host Mario Lopez is a regular Temecula Valley visitor. He makes a point to come at least once a year with his wife, family members and close friends. He always looks forward to staying at Pechanga Resort Casino and dining in Wine Country and Old Town. Mario is a big bocce ball fan, and he loves to taste while enjoying a game or two at Wilson Creek Winery, Robert Renzoni Vineyards and Peltzer Family Cellars.

Shop, Dine & Play in Old Town


12-block downtown district abounds with history & entertainment Old Town Temecula is a must-see, must-walk, musttaste destination for any Temecula Valley visitor. The historical heart of the Temecula Valley, Old Town oozes small town charm and country western character—complete with buildings that date back to the 1800s. When the railroad came to Temecula in 1882, the station was built here, establishing the area as the town center. The first paved two-lane road, the Inland Highway, followed in 1915.

Dean Norris Approved You might recognize longtime Temecula Valley resident, actor Dean Norris, from his starring roles in Breaking Bad, Terminator, Terminator II, Total Recall, Under the Dome, and One Nation Under Al. An Old Town business owner himself, these are some of his top places to visit in Old Town Temecula. When taking his wife Bridget out on a date night, their favorite place for dinner is Small Barn. “Great food and beautiful setting,” were his comments on why he put this on the top of his list. Wondering what Dean’s favorite thing to do is? He loves to go bar hopping with his buddies. “There are so many great places to hang out and we always meet fun people,” Dean adds. There’s no shortage of choices from restaurants to speakeasies to breweries. When it comes to hanging with the family, grabbing a burger at Mad Madeline’s Grill and exploring Pennypickle’s Workshop were their go-tos while the kids were growing up. When asked what he loves most about Old Town Temecula, Dean commented, “I love how Old Town continues to grow with the community while also preserving the history and essence of what Temecula is all about.” 40 V i s i t Te m e c u l a Va l l e y. c o m

‘til late night, Old Town is abuzz with contagious, upbeat energy. This is where you’ll find the biggest concentration of restaurants, bars, speakeasies and clubs that attract locals and visitors from near and far. Charming shops, museums, outdoor art, hotels and the Old Town Community Theater add to the appeal. Old Town also sets the stage for many festivals and events, including the weekly Saturday Farmers Market.

Enjoy the vintage & industrial feel of 1909 Whether you are in Temecula for a vacation, visiting friends, or work, look no further than 1909, a unique restaurant and gastropub located in the heart of Old Town Temecula. As you drive through Old Town, one of the things that draws you to this restaurant is the large patio seating area that is always filled with people, tons of laughter and good times. After reading and hearing about all of the amazing reviews 1909 has from locals and out-of-towners, this restaurant is one to experience for yourself! 1909 is a tribute to the Machado building, the location where the restaurant and bar now lives. Well before the 1909 burger was created, the structure was home to a trading post, livery, auto shop and most notably a bar. During the 70’s, the Longbranch Saloon was known as the roughest place in town to get a drink. Locals often stop in and tell stories of brawls and shootings. In fact, several bullet holes are still in the ceiling. It is no wonder that 1909 continues to draw the crowds. With handcrafted scratch-made food and cocktails, 1909 delivers a unique experience for everyone! The Cedar Smoked Old Fashioned is a crowd favorite and a show in itself. Don’t want to order off of the cocktail menu?

Their mixologists can create one-of-a-kind cocktails based off of your palette. It is truly an amazing experience. Pair that with craft food dishes and you are set! Adding to the many offerings that 1909 has is the brunch menu offered 7 days a week, complete with bottomless mimosas and the infamous house made bloodymarys. For those who want to try something more unique, order the Carnivore bloodymary complete with chicken wings, bacon and a meat straw. Yes, a meat straw! Dine with your kids during the day or come in for a fun evening and late-night menu offerings. And if you happen to have your four-legged children with you, 1909 even has a dog menu that dogs can enjoy. Check out the website for up-and-coming events being offered, special holiday menus or to book your next party. All around, you are guaranteed to find something for everyone at 1909 and your party won’t leave disappointed!

The Pechanga band of Luiseño Native American Indians were our first residents. They ran their hands through the soil, met under the Great Oak and stood atop the rolling hills overlooking the valley, naming it Temecula, or “place of the sun.”

Old Town After Dark Line dancing, DJs, blues, speakeasies & more nightlife

Gateway arches at the northern and southern entrances to this downtown district commemorate our past. In 1859, in the era of the Butterfield Stage, the first U.S. post office was established here, marking Temecula’s permanence and importance. Thus, the year 1859 is boldly emblazoned on each arch.

Old Town becomes one big party on weekends. Country music fans and line-dancers descend upon Temecula Stampede, the West Coast’s largest country music venue which recently underwent a major revitalization under new ownership. In addition to a huge dance floor made for cowboy boots, the massive space features several bars, a mechanical bull and merch store. If DJs and popular dance music are more your beat, Baily’s is considered the hottest nightclub in the Inland Empire. The action starts at 10:00 p.m. every Friday and Saturday night, with several indoor and outdoor bars and dance floor areas complete with VIP booths and bottle service. And on a completely different note, Old Town Blues Club presents a regular slate of compelling blues and jazz performances Thursdays through Sundays. Cocktail culture and the art of mixology are the star of the show at a trio of speakeasies discreetly tucked away in Old Town. Prohibitionstyle Thompson & Twain is hidden between Crush & Brew and Espadin. Apparition Room is cleverly disguised behind a sliding wall inside Devilicious Eatery. And The Merc sits just beyond the gallery inside a historic brick building on Main Street. Reservations are recommended for all three speakeasies, but you can always try your luck on short notice! 42 V i s i t Te m e c u l a Va l l e y. c o m

Two decades later, in 1882, the Temecula town site was established with the arrival of the railroad, with a station in Old Town, midway between Riverside and San Diego. Then, in the early 1900s, new roads reached the valley and helped to open up Temecula to the outside world. The Inland Highway (the first, paved, two-lane, county road and ancestor

of Highway 395) was built through Temecula Valley in 1915. Until 1949, it ran down Old Town Front Street where restaurants, gas stations, and motels served those traveling through the Temecula Valley. Meanwhile, from the 1800s until the 1960s, farmers and ranchers blanketed the valley with cattle and crops. In 1905, cattle baron Walter Vail began buying vast acreage here. By 1947, the Vail Ranch included more than 87,000 acres.

Step Further Back in Time at Vail Headquarters Louis and Ramona Wolf, two of Temecula’s earliest pioneers, first established a trading post along the Temecula Creek in 1867. Following their deaths, Walter Vail bought their land and turned it into one of California’s largest cattle operations, growing to more than 87,00 acres by 1905. The site played such a prominent role in Temecula Valley’s history, the community rallied together to preserve and restore what remained of Vail Headquarters. Today, it’s a living historic park and a treasured local gathering place. Think of Vail Headquarters like Old Town’s little sister—it’s located just a short drive away along Temecula Parkway and unassumingly tucked adjacent to a shopping center. The retail, entertainment and dining complex comprised of historic buildings and replicated structures offers an attractive blend of boutique shopping, gourmet dining, artisan coffee, craft brews, creative workspaces and a robust event line-up. Pony rides, a petting zoo, Sunday Funday concerts and the Tuesday Farmers Market are just a sampling of the regular happenings that make Vail Headquarters a must-visit Temecula Valley attraction.

In 1964, the Vails announced the sale of their ranch to a consortium of developers that had plans for a master-planned community to be known as Rancho California. When the City of Temecula was incorporated in 1989, residents voted to retain the original Native American name of the village and railroad town site. Today, more than a dozen historical properties dating as far back as the late 1880s still exist and have been repurposed and reopened in Old Town. Yet the area continually improves and re-imagines itself in new, contemporary ways. Mixed in with the historical facades, recently built structures reflect different architectural styles, lending an authentic and thoroughly individual spirit cultivated here for more than 150 years. Although the City of Temecula now boasts a population of more than 114,000 and over 3 million visitors each year, our heritage is never forgotten.

Temecula Valley’s creative side is always shining bright—yet another expression of our maker culture. Live music emanates from venues of all sizes, and you can hear the eclectic sounds of symphony, acoustic guitar, blues, hip-hop or jazz on any given day. Vibrant festivals bring the community and visitors together to celebrate the region’s diverse culture, longtime traditions and homegrown creations.

Old Town is an open air canvas for public art. Art lovers can stroll along the block-long mural depicting the history of Temecula on Sixth Street. A beautiful fountain on Main Street is the centerpiece for Town Square Park. This art piece pays tribute to the Pechanga Band of Indians with a Pechanga basketinspired design.

So-Cal Sidecars Temecula We have always loved visiting wine country, immersing ourselves in its rich history, and enjoying the freedom of the backroads on a motorcycle. We figured why not give everyone the opportunity to experience all the things we love in a new way! And with that, So-Cal Sidecars was born. We have transformed the standard motorcycle sidecar to accommodate two passengers and now we have the world’s first and only fleet of tandem sidecars. Whether you’re looking for a new fun activity or just itching to ride the vines in style, our goal is to provide our guests a unique, immersive, and intimate way to get to know this beautiful wine region the way we know best – with elegance, class, and a bit of swagger. So, grab your loved ones and friends, buckle up, and let’s ride!
