Award-winning winery and resort in the heart of SoCal’s up-and-coming Temecula Valley
An hour north of San Diego in the heart of the up-and-coming Temecula Valley Wine Region, South Coast Winery Resort & Spa is a romantic spa escape in a working winery setting. Spread across 38 acres, the property encompasses 50 hotel suites and 72 standalone villas, a celebrated restaurant, tasting rooms, the GrapeSeed Spa and a lounger-dotted outdoor pool. Guestrooms range from a comfy 490 square feet to an apartment-sized 1,150 square feet, and all have King or Queen beds, faux or gas fireplaces and spacious bathrooms with double granite vanities and standalone or over-tub showers. Rooms overlooking the vineyards have private balconies with breathtaking views. The Tuscan-style Vineyard Rose restaurant is a favorite for hearty brunches, meat-heavy dinners with expert wine pairings, and afternoon drinks on the outdoor terrace. The restaurant also dishes up a special five-course private chef’s table dinner for special occasions (by reservation only). For spa lovers, the award-winning 17,000-square-foot GrapeSeed Spa specializes in vine-based treatments, including the GrapeSeed Renewal body treatment, which uses Himalayan salt and crushed grape seed.
In the Area
The rapidly growing (and increasingly popular) Temecula Wine Country lies on the town’s northeast side, with most of the wineries along Rancho California Road. Among the best are the hilltop Miramonte, sprawling Wilson Creek and eclectic Falkner, known for its edgy architecture and leafy gardens. And if you’re in search of Lady Luck, Pechanga Casino offers 200,000 square feet of gambling and headliner concerts. While you’re there, be sure to make the 10-minute drive down to Old Town Temecula; once a stop on the overland stage coach route, it now houses restaurants, boutiques and artisanal craft shops in many of its Wild West buildings.
