We’ve been very fortunate to live near wine county in most of the places we’ve lived. Temecula is just an hour from San Diego, which makes it a fun day trip. When the opportunity to take a trip to Temecula on a luxury party bus came up, I thought it would be something fun to share with some fellow San Diego female photographers.
Being a self-employed photographer can get a little isolating. Most of your time is spent behind a computer with very little time actually interacting face to face with fellow photographers. We plan lots of small get togethers, but this was a special treat. We considered this wine tour a retreat of sorts. A break from the everyday to help recharge our batteries as mothers and business owners. We spent the day drinking some amazing wines and chit chatting about business and life. To say we had a blast would be an absolute understatement.
I can’t forget about my favorites from the tour.
Hands down, Wilson Creek Winery was my favorite. So much so that I went back with my family a couple days later for a picnic, some wine and good ambiance. If you have kids, there is a little playground in the lower picnic area with lots of grass and shade. On weekends they have live music and wine slushies. They also have a really fantastic military discount.

I tasted a few reds, but I don’t enjoy them as much anymore because I have a mild reaction to them. I’m sure there are lots of fantastic reds from Temecula. My husband loves a full bodied red, so if you know of any great Temecula reds, let me know!
We did the tour with Aall in Limo & Party Bus and the service was beyond amazing. The inside was clean and was super comfortable, even with a large group. The bus was stocked with ice, water bottles, glasses, and champagne. We had just as much fun on the bus as we did at the wineries. I also need to give a special thank you to our driver; Joe was an absolute gentlemen.
I highly recommend Aall In if you’re considering doing a Temecula wine tour while you’re in the San Diego area. The prices are very affordable and you have the option of renting by the hour or doing a package. Also, I can’t stress the importance of drinking responsibly and not driving if you’ve imbibed. Having a responsible chauffeur takes the stress out of touring wine country.
We had so much fun that we’re talking about planning another Temecula wine tour later this year. Community over competition.
