Escape Kit • A One-Night Stay for Two in a Deluxe Luxury Villa, Sundays through Thursdays ($199) or Fridays and Saturdays ($259) • Wine Tasting for Two • Bottle of South Coast Winery Wine and Rose Petals Sprinkled in Room The Destination Cool evening temps, warm ocean breezes, and a steady stream of sunshine create the quintessential conditions for growing grapes in Temecula—the city's name stems from a Luiseño Indian word meaning, "where the sun shines through the mist." More than 30 wineries and countless vineyards dot the rolling green hills of this Southern California locale, but beyond its famed Chardonnay, the area is also home to a hearty crop of charming boutiques, cozy country inns, and restaurants serving farm-to-table fare. The Digs Just an hour's drive from San Diego, Orange County, and Los Angeles, South Coast Winery Resort & Spa is a secluded sanctuary in the heart of Wine Country. Here, luxury is uncorked and the amenities flow freely: think an alfresco whirlpool, a state-of-the-art fitness center, and a 38-acre winery. The 76 sun-soaked villas at this TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence-winning resort are both spacious and cozy, with plush bedding, flat-screen TVs, and outdoor seating areas. The Diversions Start your stay with a vine-based treatment (try the grape seed oil arm massage) at the resort's award-winning GrapeSeed Spa. Later, sip your way into serenity with a tasting at the on-site winery. Here, you'll sample Southern California's best beneath rustic beamed ceilings. The perfect retreat wouldn't be complete without a gourmet feast. Treat yourself to a meal at Vineyard Rose Restaurant, where the Tuscan-inspired interior provides the perfect setting for any occasion.
Elegant, Private Villas amid Sprawling Vineyards at 4-Star Wine Resort South Coast Winery Resort & Spa’s private villas are so close to the property’s vineyards that you could reach out the windows and pluck fresh grapes from the vine. With its carefully cultivated grounds and Mediterranean architecture, the resort might remind some of Tuscany. But South Coast is on 38 picturesque acres in Southern California’s Temecula Valley, a region revered for viniculture. A winery tour included with this getaway takes visitors through each aspect of the winemaking process, from the vineyard to the barrel room. The tour ends with a wine and cheese pairing. Later, you can spend some time unwinding in the resort's luxurious GrapeSeed Spa, where you can apply your $20 spa credit toward treatments $85 and over, such as full-body seaweed wraps. At the onsite Vineyard Rose Restaurant—a Wine Spectator Award of Excellence winner—you can pair the winery's cabernet sauvignon with pan-seared salmon and other gourmet entrees. Sprinkled with rose petals just before your arrival, South Coast’s private villas provide the most intimate setting to share an included bottle of pre-selected wine. The bedroom's warm burgundy and green hues subtly recall the vineyards, and the roomy jacuzzi supplies a romantic spot to relax. Or head to the outdoor saltwater pool, which pipes music underwater through waterproof speakers. Temecula Valley, California: Rolling Vineyards and Small-Town Charm Located in Southern California between Los Angeles and San Diego, Temecula feels small compared to the metropolises it's sandwiched between. Temecula's landscape offers a relaxing contrast to its neighbors’ urban sprawl. Here, you’ll find rolling vineyards that produce award-winning wines. Tours and tastings are a popular way to explore wineries, but Temecula's countryside can be best appreciated in a hot-air-balloon ride, which you can arrange through the resort. Enjoy another quaint mode of transportation by hitching a ride in a horse-drawn carriage through Old Town Temecula, which resembles an Old West town with its rustic windmill, decorative wagons, and historical buildings. Along the wooden boardwalks, you'll find saloons, antique shops, and boutiques selling handmade quilts, baked goods, and cuckoo clocks. If you’re in town on Saturdays, visit the local farmers’ market for fresh flowers, fruits, and vegetables. Read the Fine Print for important info on travel dates and other restrictions.
