Temecula Valley Southern California Wine Country will celebrate Temecula Valley Restaurant Month with “Temeculafied” specialty burgers made from local farm-fresh ingredients at restaurants in Old Town Temecula, Temecula Valley Wine Country, Pechanga Resort & Casino, Promenade Temecula and throughout the region. The monthlong culinary event takes place the whole month of January. Local chefs have been invited to participate in creating signature burgers to coordinate with the theme.
Temecula Valley Restaurant Month is an extension of California Restaurant Month; Visit Temecula Valley and the Temecula Valley Chamber of Commerce have proudly participated in the statewide event for the past seven years.
Temecula Valley Southern California Wine Country is uniquely situated for premier culinary experiences from fine dining to gastro pubs to artisan farm-to-table quick-service restaurants to ethnic specialties. The agricultural surroundings of the region give restaurants convenient access to locally-sourced pork, beef, vegetables, citrus, apples, berries, cheese, olive oil, craft beer and wine – it’s a chef’s dream. Visitors are attracted to the fresh, local food found at Temecula Valley Southern California Wine Country restaurants, and this year’s focus on fresh, local mouthwatering hamburgers will be something into which every guest will want to sink their teeth.
During Restaurant Month, visitors can immerse themselves in farmers’ markets, special chef events, Restaurant Month specialty burgers and wine tours. Temecula Valley’s wealth of fresh, local ingredients, paired with innovative chefs, farmers and culinary artisans means visitors can enjoy cuisine as diverse and robust as the destination.
The monthlong event will give visitors an excellent chance to explore all there is to see and do in Temecula Valley Southern California Wine Country. Weekday visits offer the best value to guests, as travelers will receive exceptional hotel rates on overnight accommodations, personalized attention, and even conversations with local chefs, winemakers and winery owners themselves.
