Explore the Temecula Valley Wine Country
California's Temecula Valley has been a center for wine production for hundreds of years, beginning with the Franciscan padres at Mission San Juan Capistrano. The valley is now an official American Viticultural Area (AVA). Located 500 miles south of San Francisco, Temecula's comparably warmer climate is best suited for growing grapes such as the rhône varietals, including cabernet sauvignon and zinfandel.
With this getaway, you'll get to experience the local scene during an included four-hour tour of Temecula Valley wine country. An expert host will accompany you and other guests on a limo ride through the valley, visiting three wineries along the way. You'll enjoy up to six tastings at each winery as well as champagne, crackers, and chocolate in the limo between stops.
The Hotel: Tuscany Hills Resort and Spa
You'll spend 1 or 2 nights at the Italian countryside–inspired Tuscany Hills Resort and Spa, just 40 minutes north of San Diego. There, you'll slumber in a deluxe double-queen suite or deluxe king suite outfitted with french doors, free WiFi, and a private patio or balcony with views of the courtyard and the adjacent 18-hole golf course.
Relax at any of four cascading outdoor soaking pools, which are heated between 90 and 104 degrees, or take some laps in the outdoor swimming pool. Massages and body wraps are offered at the spa, too.
