There’s so much to do in Temecula and so many great wines to sample that a day trip just won’t cut it. Thankfully, there’s plenty of choice when it comes to hotels and inns to extend your stay and make the most of this spectacular part of the world.
In this blog we’ll take a look at a few of the favored Temecula Wine Country hotels – spots that are perfectly situated to allow you to explore the stunning Wine Country. With a wide range of acclaimed wineries, often considered one of California’s best, it would be easy to spend a week or two trying wonderful wines in one of the most scenic settings imaginable.
The New Inn
If you’re looking to enjoy Temecula Wine Country with the touch of luxury it deserves, The New Inn is the ideal choice for you. The inn’s spacious villas are light and modern yet maintain a rustic charm, and its location puts the local vineyards right on your doorstep. Embark on one of The New Inn’s wine tours for two, treat yourself to a picnic, and finish off your day with an Italian dinner with wine pairings on your private patio.
The Inn at Europa Village is a gorgeous, intimate retreat in the very heart of Temecula Wine Country. You could happily spend the whole time just taking in the atmosphere and exceptional views at this beautiful bed & breakfast, but there’s also plenty to do in the immediate area. Start your day with an exhilarating hot air balloon adventure, grab lunch and explore the historic Old Town, then head on over to Avensole Winery just down the road from your inn and sample some of the best wine in Temecula. This stay is in close proximity to the Rancho California Wine Trail, so we’d recommend plotting a wine tour route on the Rancho California Trail to hit a few of the renowned wineries within that route.
South Coast Winery Resort & Spa
The villas and suites at South Coast Winery Resort & Spa blend unbeatable comfort with the natural beauty one expects from the area. Revitalize and rejuvenate at the spa before trying some of the winery’s offerings. Thanks to its location, this is also a great spot for embarking on a tour of Temecula Wine Country. Check out some of the other local wineries before ending your day at the Avensole Winery restaurant for dinner, which is within walking distance of your hotel. As an added bonus, this resort is dog-friendly, meaning you don’t need to leave your four-legged friend behind!

The spacious, contemporary suites are bright and airy, and the pool and cabanas offer picturesque views that will have you wanting to lounge there all day to soak in the setting. If you can pull yourself away, Gaia Inn & Spa is located close to the De Portola Wine Trail, the new ‘wine row’ of Temecula consisting of 11 unique family-owned vineyards. It’s also a superb choice for any avid hikers, situated near to many of Temecula’s idyllic trails.
