5 Reasons to Visit Temecula Wine Country in the Spring

5 Reasons to Visit Temecula Wine Country in the Spring

It's officially Spring in the vineyards out here in Temecula Wine Country!

One of our favorite times of the year! The bud break is everywhere on the vines, all of the flowers are blooming, and the birds are chirping.

Here are 5 Reasons to Visit Temecula Wine Country in the Spring :

  1. Green hillsides, wildflowers and the birds are chirping.                                                               This is a magical time in Southern California. If there was a lot of rain the year leading up, there may even be a super bloom of California Poppies somewhere along the way! The green hills and the bud break on the vines, with the wildflowers growing in between is so beautiful! This greenery only lasts so long though!
  2. The smell of Citrus is in the Air                                                                                                    There is nothing like driving through wine country, taking in the beautiful views of the different vineyards, while going by the fields of citrus. The smell is just amazing. This is a true Southern California Experience just on its own!
  3. Farmers Markets                                                                                                                  Saturday morning is the Temecula Farmers Market. It's always so much fun to walk around Old Town Temecula and see what all the local vendors have to offer and pick up some fresh produce. Every 1st and 3rd Thursday Downtown Murrieta does Market Nights . It's a definite must do! They shut down the main road, do carriage rides, train rides, have a lot of vendors, and live music.
  4. Visit the Gardens                                                                                                                        Some of our favorite spots to see spring blooms at the wineries are at Somerset Winery and Briar Rose Winery . You can also pay a visit to Rose Haven Heritage Garden A 3.4 acre garden containing over 1,900 rose bushes, and a variety of other water‑wise plants.
  5. Take a ride in a VW Bus to the Wineries                                                                                  With all this said, there is nothing like experiencing Temecula in the Spring like choosing to experience it in a VW Bus. The wind blowing through your hair, smell of citrus coming through the windows, singing with your friends, and tasting the delicious wines Temecula Valley has to offer!

Here is a list of wineries along the De Portola Wine Trail so far:

Once a year they also hold a event called the Big Red Festival! It just happened April 25, so unfortunately you’ll have to wait until next time.. but that doesn’t mean you can’t come out here anyways and create your own version of a Big Red Fest! (or white, or rose) haha

The owners of these wineries take pride and love what they do. They may even be there to show you around! You are sure to learn a lot at any one of these, whether you go yourself or you join us and we take you to one we love!

Temecula wine pandemic 2020

We see light at the end of the tunnel from COVID-19 and the Temecula Wine Pandemic 2020. Now it’s time to have some fun with Van’N Boozy.

Temecula wineries have the green light to launch their soft openings after spending the past two months wondering when the fun would turn back on. We’ve all had good practice drinking at home, but it’s time to get back to the ambiance of the wineries where the wine tastes better with a view.

We pick you up from your Hotel, Air BNB, or home residence in Temecula or Murrieta to make sure that everyone in your group can remain worry free of drinking and driving. Once you book your Boozy Adventure with us, leave all of the thinking to us! We’ve got you covered.

Van’N Boozy has partnered with Temecula’s best wineries. Make sure you’ll feel most comfortable with their laid back vibes. Our lineup is sure to leave you talking about the Temecula wine pandemic 2020 fun for months to come.

Right now we are waiving all of our deposits to help make booking your trip with us as simple as possible. Feel free to email, text, or call to reserve your date. Find our contact information on the homepage of www.VANNBOOZY.com

KTLA5 roseparade!

On the very first day of the year, bright and early, we were featured by KTLA5 for the Roseparade!

We can't believe it's already February! Time flies when your having fun.

We filmed it maybe a month before it actually aired, so the whole time leading up to it we were nervous/excited to see how it turned out!

When we first met with the whole team in a parking lot, we had decided Sarah was going to do the talking and they would film in Boozy1 (Blue Bus). Then everything got switched around in the last minute, and they wanted to film in Boozy3 because of the sunroof! So Rich was driving that bus for the day, and he got to do the interview!

It was awesome getting to talk to Mark Steines and Kathleen Bade (the hosts of the 2020 KTLA5 Roseparade) and drive them around in the Boozy Buses! They were both amazing at what they do.

The morning of the Rose Parade, we were excited to see that it turned out so good! I included the video down below. It's a short and sweet little clip of what we do out here in Temecula, California! 🙂
