It’s Winery Wednesday!
Today, we are visiting a winery in the Southern California wine area of Temecula.
It was almost two years ago to the day, Handsome and I arrived here in the wee hours of the morning, it was still pitch black outside. We were meeting our pilot to soar over Temecula in a hot air balloon, and Europa Village was the beginning of our extraordinary day drifting above the clouds. It was nice to be going back to do some wine tasting this time.
The wine tasting room has one of the smaller bar areas we encountered throughout our wine tasting tour. There are many delightful gift items to browse through and purchase in the tasting room. One of the staff members told us that in the near future there are plans to expand the tasting room. We really enjoyed the cozy atmosphere of the wine tasting area.
The staff are friendly, knowledgeable and happy to discuss the European-style varietal grapes that are planted across their 30 + acres of land.
There is several outdoor seating areas amidst the lovely gardens. When you sit under the covered patio area, the lower part of the vineyard is right next to you. It is easy to lose track of time and where you are in this beautiful location.
I love receiving this wine glass as a memento from our wine tasting. Whenever I drink out of it now, I immediately go back to the wonderful times Handsome and I have shared at Europa Village.
I am always amazed looking at grapes on the vine, then thinking of the long processes winemakers endure while producing that beautiful glass of wine.
