Our weekend trip to Temecula's Wine Country
About 2 weeks ago, Ray and I visited Southern Cali's very own wine country in San Diego county. We had high hopes, but were sorely disappointed. Ever since our trip to Napa last year, we've become avid wine drinkers. Amongst our favs...Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc.
Temecula really did not put its best foot forward in regards to wine. We visited several wineries in the hopes of finding some good wine to take home but alas, all that was worth drinking was the bubbly. All we ended up taking home were a couple of bottles of champagne. Although I do have to admit that Wilson Creek Winery had the BEST and MOST UNIQUE champagne ever...ALMOND CHAMPAGNE. Sooooo yummy!! La Cereza Winery also had a Peach Champagne that was quite refreshing.
Bottom line is if you want the really good stuff, make the trek up to Napa Valley. Not only is the weather nice and cool in the summer, but it's a glimpse of what the vineyards of Italy look like.
