Memories Made in California Wine Country, Temecula-style

Friends of ours live in Temecula, California. They, too, are members of the International Food Wine and Travel Writers Association.

Just minutes from Old Town Temecula and the subdivisions that house the 100,000+ population, the Temecula Valley offers a Mediterranen climate that is perfect for growing cool, moderate, and warm climate grape varieties.

We talked about wine, writing, and food. Travel, too. And we laughed a lot.
