Location & Scenery
Less than 60 miles north of San Diego and 90 miles southeast of Los Angeles lies Temecula Valley Wine Country, the heart of California's South Coast wine region. Rolling hills covered with vineyards, expansive views reaching to 11,000 foot high mountains, air swept by ocean breezes, and world-class wines make Temecula Valley Wine County a beautiful and fun area to visit.
These wineries produce award-winning wines made possible by a unique microclimate and well-drained granite soils. The 1,500 foot elevation makes for cool summer nights, and delightful breezes come through the vineyards every afternoon throughout the summer.
Wine tasting features different premium wines from numerous Temecula Valley wineries as well as others from Southern California.
Hot Air Balloon Flights
Make your Festival experience memorable and book a hot air balloon flight.
Your flight will begin at sunrise as the balloon lifts gently into the sapphire skies above Lake Skinner. Balloons cannot "steer" and must fly with the gentle breezes of the air currents. You could find yourself back at the Festival grounds or floating gracefully over the Temecula Valley wine country.
Your pilot will return you safely to the Festival and an afternoon of fun.
