I spent so much time recently stewing about all the banking bigwigs’ multi-million dollar bonuses, that I neglected to notice my own depleted finances. Had they been siphoning money from my account to help pay for their golden parachutes? No, I guess I should have figured that if both my husband and I have been home everyday, no one was out earning a paycheck. Apparently, we weren’t on vacation. So, for the third time this year, we were in need of our own financial bailout.

While the 23 wineries of the Temecula Valley are a fraction of what you might find in ever-popular Napa - with at last count, around 300 local wineries - Temecula's wine-tasting experience is getting high marks from travelers who have happened on this scenic valley almost by accident. Located just off the well-traveled Interstate 15, between Riverside and San Diego, the gently rolling hills and scenic vineyards of Temecula now are becoming a destination in their own right. Not just a gimmick to boost local tourism, the wineries of Temecula make good wine - and presumably good money - turning the fruit of the Valley into wines that are satisfying even the most sophisticated palates.

With its location between Los Angeles and San Diego, its inland balmy weather and its impressive group of first-class wineries, it’s no wonder the Temecula Valley has become a major weekend destination for SoCal leisure travelers. There are 35 wineries in Temecula, most of them conveniently located along a few major thoroughfares that stretch several miles eastward from Temecula’s more densely populated areas. The city itself has expanded in recent years to the point that more than 300,000 people live in the Temecula Valley.
