I was lucky enough to snag a spot on the Sun Rider Winery Jeep Tours, which featured a day of wine tasting, a catered lunch, and off-roading, in the scenic and serene Temecula, CA thanks to a Cloud 9 Living Experience.
My friend Adria joined me and we started our day by grabbing some Starbucks and then taking a mini road trip from West Hollywood, CA to Temecula, CA. Once we got there we were greeted by our awesome and super friendly tour guide. We hopped in the back set of his Jeep, with its top down, and then started on our way for a day of wine tasting and off roading.
Our first stop was to Hart Winery. We got to see to see inside their VIP Barrel Room and learned how the wine was made, from red to white, and the different ways to age the wine whether it's in the wooden barrels or in the new metal large canisters.
The second winery stop was Leoness Winery where we provided with an experience that included having our own designated attendee to educate us on the wines and serve us. The property was extremely beautiful and we got to do a walking tour of the grounds.
After this stop we were treated to a yummy lunch outside where we could rest up until our next adventure. The last stop on our wine tour did not disappoint. We enjoyed our final round of wine tasting at the Avensole Winery where we ran into a fun group of girls hosting a bachelorette party.
I can't wait to go back!
