Southern California is slowly becoming a mecca in the wine industry. There are several award-winning wineries that can be found in and around San Diego county. Most noticeably, the incredible wineries just north in the Temecula valley have turned into a top tourist destination. Most trips include transportation to and from the vineyards, so don’t hesitate to squeeze as many ‘tastes’ as you can. Remember to check the cork, note the color, smell the wine, and fully taste everything each vintage has to offer and you’ll be wine connoisseur in no time.
