California's Southern Wine Region
Temecula is a warm and fertile area of California that has been a center of winemaking for decades. Unusual in that it is relatively so far south of other California wine grape growing regions, it is uniquely situated – both in terms of latitude and aspect – to produce wines of distinct and singular character. The warmth of the Temecula climate makes for well-ripened grapes.
The higher sugar level of these grapes at the time of harvest makes for a more full-bodied and opulent style of wine. These fruity and jammy wines do exhibit the depth and complexity that connoisseurs seek, but their soft approachability and fruit-forward attributes have always made them instant life-loves of wine beginners and those whose palates adore more round smoothness. A trip to Temecula is a very worthy and rewarding wine experience for all.
