Temecula, CA (September 4, 2013) - Slated to open this October, Farm House Kitchen, located in Temecula's premier golf resort Temecula Creek Inn situated in the heart of wine country, will usher in a new era of dining in Temecula Valley. The new space, a rustic yet refined eatery, represents a $2.5 million transformation. Designed to encourage social dining, guests will indulge in locally sourced, farmhouse fare, premium wines and house-aged whiskys.

"Temecula Creek Inn has been lsquo;go to' for golfers and wine country visitors for a generation.
