Temecula: A Wine Tasting To Do
If you have the opportunity to swing through the Temecula wine region, do take up the chance. A little over an hour from L.A. and a couple hours drive from San Diego, it sits perfectly on the way to Palm Springs, so we decided to take the rental convertible through the sublime wine region. We first stopped at Callaway.
Callaway is one of the more modern and sleek wineries I’ve ever been to. You can choose to go to the counter and order a tasting (or a few) from the pourer–or you can buy a self-service card in various amounts and slide it right into refrigerated machines that spurt out the perfectly measured tasting amount. As you can see, we went with the latter option.
Before we stopped for lunch at our third winery, we made a quick stop at Mount Palomar winery. Ultimately, we decided to skip out on the tasting here because we weren’t feeling the vibe (it was clearly senior citizen field trip day). Off next to Ponte, where we sat down for calm and enjoyable lunch that included a delicious glass of Pinot Grigio accompanied by an heirloom tomato and shrimp bruschetta and a bountiful cheese and meat plate.
