Awards for Temecula Wines
Temecula Valley is the premiere winemaking region in Southern California. Over the last decade, the number of wineries in Temecula Valley Southern California Wine Country has doubled and more new wineries are in the planning stages. More importantly, the area’s reputation for making fine wine is on the rise as Temecula Valley wines continue to win hundreds of major awards at dozens of wine competitions that include well-known domestic and international brands. Temecula Valley's own South Coast Winery has received "Golden State Winery of the Year," the prestigious Golden Bear Award from the California State Fair Wine Competition, for two years in a row in 2008 and 2009.
