One of the best things about my parents living in San Diego is how close they are to wine country. No, not the Napa Valley, but rather the Temecula Valley. Many people may not realize that southern California is home to many fantastic vineyards and their respective wineries. Located approximately 60 miles north of San Diego, strolling the wineries in Temecula is a fabulous way to spend an afternoon. (without having to pay the Napa flight tasting prices!)
Traveler Tip: Some of our favorites include Callawy, Doffo, Hart (my kindergarten teacher owns the winery!), Leoness, Thornton and Wiens.
