The knowledgeable guides at Sunrider Tours lead grape-curious parties on customized journeys through wine country in their bright yellow, open-air Jeeps. With many wineries in Temecula's immediate surrounds, oenophilic tourists may select which sites they would like to visit or defer to the guide's Ouija board to create their outing's itinerary. Moving at their own pace, most groups conquer three locations in three hours with complimentary tastings at Danza del Sol Winery, Stuart Cellars Winery, or Robert Renzoni Vineyards. Sipping fees at other vino venues typically range from $10–$15 per person. Though a meal is not included in this adventure, guests are welcome to bring their own snacks, nibbles, or 50-pound wheels of cheese.
