    Default Fun in Temecula

    Me and the wife are going to tour some wineries in Temecula this weekend-any recommendations for wineries/restaurants for lunch/fun things to do in Old Town?

    I read the Callaway Winery is overrated but totally open to suggestions.

They are lead by Phil Alvin's soulful bellowing about causing chaos, chasing women and the loss of the citrus groves. Influenced by the likes of The Rolling Stones, Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly, and others who came and went during the 1950's, The Blasters play the songs of the working man's curse and rock and roll romance. Founding members Phil Alvin and John Bazz, with the addition of Keith Wyatt on lead guitar and Jerry Angel on drums, are carrying on their hard-won legacy of one of the most credible and recognizable bands in Americana music.

    My favorite restaurant is a place called Rosa's Tortilla Factory. Its not exactly the date spot, but the food is awesome. And they make their own tortilla's on site. The wineries are well, wineries, and we have a ton of them. Theres Pechanga Casino and Hotel, which has plenty of restaurants and gambling. Old Town is cool to walk around. Good shakes at Mad Madelines. Grab some avacados and nuts. Yer gonna love our nuts. Id suggest hitting the wineries on Saturday and stay the night at Pechanga. Its a nice overnight getaway.
    And thats how you get ants!

    Go to Wilson's Creek and try the almond champagne. It's served in a chocolate shot glass and pretty darn tasty.

    I second Rosas.

    We eat there all the time. Great food.

    There are 3 locations though. The little dive in Old Town and a nicer place just up the street.

    Old Town is fun to just walk around. Lots of antique stores. I've been stalking them looking for an old typewriter. Never did the winery tour because the man doesn't like wine. We did one years ago in Santa Barbara and he ended up driving me around from place to place until I passed out in the car. So he won't do that again.

    Here are my favs, I hope it helps

    Favorite Wineries:

    Stewart Cellars
    I bought 9 bottles of wine at this place the last time I went there. Very good wines.

    Falkner Winery
    try the Super Tuscan, its awesome

    Favorite Restaurant:

    Penfolds Cattle Co.
    The rib-eye was spectacular, perfectly seasoned/aged/cooked. Well worth the money.
    Penfolds also owns a cafe just outside of old town. They have decent pies there, but the steakhouse is amazing.

    Best Hotel:

    Embassy Suites
    Other hotels are just about the same price, so you might as well spend the $$$ on a decent room.

    My favorite place in Temecula:
    (sorry, no link)

    Temecula Valley Cheese Co.
    Hundreds of the World's Finest Specialty Cheese,
    Meats and Gourmet Food Items
    Full Cheese Course for weddings/parties/events
    Beautiful Gifts and Gift Baskets.
    Enjoy a cheese plate with Wines & Beers on the Patio
    Dog Friendly Patio
    42072 5th St.- #101 (Penfold Building)
    Old Town Temecula
    951-693-9500

    Great selection of cheeses, olives, beer, wine and chocolate. Very nice place to get a tasty snack and catch a buzz in the sun.

    The best thing about Temecula and the wineries is that they aren't overly pretentious and self absorbed, unlike Napa/Sonoma. Just good wine at a good price. The bonus is that its an hour or so away. Good times!

    Crap... I want to go back now.
