In 1968, the first commercial vineyard was established in Temecula Valley by Vincenzo and Audrey Cilurzo.
The region has since grown, with over 50 wineries, countless awards, and booming tourism. The theme for the 50th Anniversary is “The People, Passion and Perseverance,” underscoring wine country’s history, while highlighting the entrepreneurs who pour their hearts into growing quality grapes and making premium wines year after year. The theme will be woven into all events and programming throughout 2018, culminating in a vineyard celebration dinner in association with California Wine Month, harvest and the annual CRUSH event, Temecula Valley’s signature wine and culinary showcase.
