Not-to-miss breweries include Ironfire Brewing Company, Oscar’s Brewing Company, Refuge Brewery and Stone Church Brewing.

3. Refreshing Plunges

Cool off in one of the pools at the many lodging options, during a spa rejuvenation, or even while wine tasting. There is nothing like taking a dip in the pool after soaking in some California sunshine.

There are several ways for travelers to play under the open skies and scenic backdrops. Whether group or solo activities are preferred, there are plenty of choices for outdoor fun. Golf at Temecula Valley’s top courses, Journey at Pechanga, Temecula Creek Golf Club, or CrossCreek Golf Club.

Devilicious Eatery serves up a Brambleweed: which is vodka, lemon juice, simple syrup, and Lejay built up over ice in a glass. Espadin’s Skinny Margarita is always a hit featuring their agave syrup.

8. Old Town

Old Town Temecula is a day of fun on its own with breweries, shopping, dining, entertainment, arts, culture, and special events. Stop in Temecula Valley Museum for an overview of Temecula’s history then pick up some unique made-in-Temecula products at Temecula Olive Oil Company, Temecula Lavender Company, and Old Town Spice & Tea Merchants, and grab a treat at Old Town Sweet Shop. Check performance times at Old Town Temecula Community Theater and grab dinner before the show then a Night Cap at Apparition Room or Thompson & Twain speakeasies.

9. Guided Tours

Wine country transportation companies, wineries, breweries, distilleries, and Old Town Temecula all offer guided tours. A look behind-the-scenes and an educational opportunity can be priceless and it definitely makes for a special memory.

10. Stay the Night

Resorts, villas, cabanas, casitas, inns, and vacation rentals are found in wine country among the rolling hills of vineyards. Visitors can also choose to stay in Downtown Old Town Temecula within walking distance of the historic district or Uptown at their favorite brand hotel, or in the peaceful canyon nestled in the foothills at Pechanga Resort Casino or Temecula Creek Inn.

Tonino Lamborghini: A Lifestyle Brand

When high quality meets bold design, a unique accessory is born!

Founded in 1981 by Tonino Lamborghini, 2nd generation of the LAMBORGHINI industrial dynasty, the company has evolved into a luxury lifestyle and design powerhouse, creating superlative watches, sunglasses, leather, smartphones, restaurants, jet-setters hotels, food, and beverage, from coffee to vodka and energy drinks, distributed in 40 countries around the world.

” In 1981, I started up my new Tonino Lamborghini Style and Accessories company. At the time, I assisted my father in the family group, but I felt the need to do something exclusively of my own, different from the world of engines. I have always been interested in design and accessories, and I took inspiration from my engineering background. I’ve always loved products linked to mechanics; thus, it was obvious that the first accessory I designed was a watch. And even today, in every product I create, there must not be missing a detail somehow related to my family’s automotive and engineering heritage. Uncompromising spirit, Italian ingenuity, and design – together with the timeless legend of a brand recognized worldwide: are the values that characterize my brand. My company’s mission is clear: to spread the passion and spirit of Italy with unique and distinctive products, inspired by Italian industrial design and the Lamborghini family’s story”

“Tonino Lamborghini in 2021 will celebrate its 40th anniversary. My father founded the Italian spirit to the world through a series of products that range from watches, eyewear, leather goods  three corporate core businesses furniture, hospitality projects, and branded beverages. A real lifestyle experience brand!”

With the support of the designers of its Centro Stile, constantly under the supervision of Tonino Lamborghini, the company has designed and manufactured timepiece models that have become real style icons over the years.

Following the Lamborghini family’s vision and constant inspiration, the company’s designers have created unique watches like the Spyder, a watch totally inspired by the shield of the brand’s emblem that encloses the “Miura raging bull,” or timeless pieces like the Cuscinetto, whose first edition goes back to 1983.

The new Tonino Lamborghini Swiss Watches collection has been completely conceived and designed by Ferruccio Lamborghini, Tonino’s first son, representing the third generation of the Lamborghini family. From his famous grandfather, Ferruccio has inherited the name and the passion for motorcycles and high speed: he is a motorcycling champion in the Italian Championship.

With a team of designers and a historic Swiss watch manufacturer, Ferruccio has created eight new lines of timepieces that elegantly combine his father’s past and his experience in the 2-wheels world. A brand-new range of performing Swiss watches dedicated to daring, bold, audacious, intrepid, fearless, and pioneering people, with remarkable resourcefulness.
