Inland Empire, CA

Southern California Wine Region

Southern California - Picture Malibu, Los Angeles, Orange County and San Diego, and this is exactly what you see: blue skies, surf, sunshine—maybe even a movie star or two. The stars of southern California wine share the blue skies and sunshine of our famous beaches, but the lifestyle is more serene, with quiet vineyards tucked into rolling valleys and foothills. Picture this: one San Diego vineyard grows their Cabernet Sauvignon at 1,300 meters (4,400 feet) above sea level, the highest vineyard elevation in California.

Los Angeles County - Celebrity sightings are as guaranteed in Malibu as good surf is in Ventura. These coastal areas are home to countless movie stars, legendary surf spots, art, avocados, and intimate high-elevation wineries.  Stay at nearby RV parks and campgrounds.

San Diego County - With its long beaches and temperate Mediterranean climate, San Diego County is one of California's most popular tourist destinations. Established in the 1700s, this region has been growing grapes longer than nearly any other county in the state. Stay at nearby RV parks and campgrounds.

Temecula Valley - Temecula Valley has been growing winegrapes since the late 1700s. But it was another 200 years before the industry truly took hold, gaining AVA status in 1984. Tempered by coastal fog, this warm region is best known for its Italian and Rhône varietals—and its annual Balloon and Wine Festival. Stay at nearby RV parks and campgrounds.
