Wiens 2008 Reserve Tempranillo-Petit Syrah

This year, March 5th & 6th emerged warm and breezy like every good wine country weekend should. The perfect weather was just one happy element of a wonderful weekend at the World of Wine winter barrel tasting event. With passports in hand, we journeyed from one stop to the next, sampling special wines with custom food parings at the 33 participating wineries. The Temecula Valley Winegrowers Association did a wonderful job of organizing the event and the wineries showed each attendee the hospitality that Temecula Wine Country is famous for.
As we visited each winery, we noticed the whimsical cork creations featured this year. The Temecula Valley Winegrowers Association has partnered with ReCORK, a cork recycling program whose goal is to recycle natural corks and each winery created a work of art, sculpture or other fun item using corks. WoW attendees will vote for their favorite via postcard or on the TVWGA Facebook page. For a delightful glimpse into the WoW weekend, please enjoy this video by Ginger Baker-Giordano!


There is always something exciting going on in Temecula Wine Country, but the fun is extra special when all of the wineries, big and small, work together to show us what they are all about. Thank you to the participating wineries and to the Temecula Valley Valley Winegrowers Association for organizing a unique adventure for us!
