  • Monday through Thursday offers a relaxing atmosphere with less visitors, making this an opportune time for chance conversations with a winery owner or winemaker since they are usually on the property and mingling midweek. There's also time for questions and quality discussions with a sommelier.

  • Most wineries are open daily from 11:00am to 5:00-6:00pm.

  • Typically, three wineries are an adequate amount to taste and visit while keeping a relaxed pace. All the wineries are in close proximity to each other, making it easy to navigate.

  • Harvest season begins for some Temecula wineries as early as July and extends into October or November. The summer months are the optimal time to see full grape clusters on the vines.
