A Culinary Escape
Temecula Valley will be your favorite go-to destination and crowd favorite when it comes to planning your meeting or event. From authentic cuisine to foodie experiences, you can transport your guests from the boardroom to the feel of a relaxing vacation. Give your meeting a twist with culinary experiences such as wine blending, cooking demonstrations and hands-on classes. Incorporate culinary pop-ups in your meeting, such as olive oil tasting, local chocolate truffle and wine pairings, or surprise your guests with a donut wall!
A Taste of The Old West with a Modern Twist
Point your attendees to Old Town Temecula for some afterwork or meeting break fun. Aside from a lively nightlife that has unique cocktails and area local music, Temecula is known for its hot spots that cater to foodies, or lovers of unique foods from different parts of the world. Your attendees can enjoy everything from innovative eateries to cozy coffee shops and high-quality gastropubs.
A majority of the restaurants in the area have curated menus that combine the freshest locally sourced ingredients to wow your attendees. And even for the pickier eaters or those who have dietary needs, there is a great selection of vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free and paleo options for dining out.
This foodie district is considered Old Town Temecula and the architecture is still the same as it was in the late 19th century. With so many locally owned and exciting eateries, you won’t find any chain restaurants in this downtown!
Dining in Wine Country
After your meeting, Pair your wine tastings with some of the top-rated winery restaurants like the Restaurant at Avensole Winery or Meritage at Callaway Vineyard and Winery, for a stellar culinary experience.
Many of our favorite spots that can cater to large groups, have great food and also include stunning views of Temecula’s countryside, like Pinnacle Restaurant at Falkner Winery which has sweeping panoramas and expertly paired wines to go along with their menus. Many of the local vineyards also offer deliciously prepared meals or treats that go along with their tours or visits. You will even be able to take home some wine knowledge that you can show off at your next dinner party.
Temecula is also host to many annual festivals from music, wine and art. When you’re planning your event, you should see if it coordinates with one of these festivals as another fun foodie experience. One to look out for is the Temecula Valley Balloon & Wine Festival. This festival combines hot air balloons, tasty food vendors, wine tasting and live music in a relaxed and laid-back environment.
With plenty to see and do, along with a wide variety of culinary options that will satisfy any craving, you will want to make Temecula your exclusive event destination for years to come.
