Wine Country Weekend

About 1 ½ hours away from us is Temecula, Southern California’s wine growing region. We have been attempting to get together a tasting trip for over six months now, so when the opportunity arose, we jumped on it and took a day trip out there. It was a great time to relax, catch up, and enjoy simple food and good wine. We took a picnic, grabbed a bottle of wine (or more) at the winery, and set up quite the spread. Wineries supply the glasses with the wine!

Now, you don’t have to bring a table cloth and serving ware, but I find it completes the experience. Here’s everything you need for a perfect Wine Country Day Trip.
