1. Re: Any Recommendatiuons for a wine and cheese tasting?

For the most comprehensive winery info, look to the Temecula Valley Winegrowers Association (www.temeculawines.org). Of the 35 wineries listed, 10 have restaurants (days of operation and hours vary significantly), and naturally many serve cheese plates.

If, instead of going the restaurant route, you prefer to sample cheeses while sampling wines, try Thornton Winery. They offer an Artisan Cheese Platter in the restaurant as an appetizer, and you can also order it while doing a wine tasting, which Thornton offers seated at tables (at almost all other wineries the tasting is offered while standing at a bar).

Hope that helps, Strawberry. Enjoy!

Friday and Saturday afternoons/evenings Miramonte Winery offers artisan cheese plates prepared by local chefs with pairing recommendations.

The Temecula Valley Cheese Company in Old Town Temecula offers both cheese and wine tasting. Many of their wines are from outside the Temecula area.

Thank you for the recommendations - think we will be going to Thornton for their live music on friday nights, so this is a great suggestion to accompany our wine tasting!!
