Our Anniversary at Wilson Creek Winery
Valentine’s Day was my husband Daniel and I’s one year anniversary. We got married at Wilson’s Creek in Temecula, California, on a beautiful Valentine’s Day night with a guest list of a hundred people. For our anniversary, we wanted to go back to Wilson Creek because we truly love the atmosphere there and the owners, as well as the people they’re just so nice.
On Saturday, my parents had complimentary wine tasting tickets that the owners had given to them from our wedding. So, they shared their wine tasting tickets and we had a picnic. What makes Wilson Creek Winery so unique is they have a huge picnic area where you are able to bring outside food and drink and enjoy your very own picnic. They only request that you don’t bring coolers which a lot of people don’t seem to follow but I feel it is an easy request to respect. We brought Subway, chips, and water to the beautiful green picnic area. The weather was a beautiful 80 degrees and was wonderful in the shade. After our little picnic, we got a couple of tastings and enjoyed sitting and talking photos. My husband got me this wonderful anniversary gift of Instax FujiFilm mini 8, it takes the cutest instant photos. We had a blast taking photos with it at the winery.
We continued to walk around for a bit and enjoyed the great weather. We continued to enjoy our wine tasting tickets. We had Almond Champagne at our wedding and it is always our favorite. So we decided to taste something different. We enjoyed their Peach Bellini and their Orange Mimosa. I really loved the Peach Bellini, it was one of my new favorites. My parent’s then treated us to see the movie Deadpool, because we are that kind of family. It was everything we could hope for, plus I think it disturbed my parents a bit but my Mum surprisingly liked the movie.
Sunday – Happy Valentine’s Day!
On Sunday, my husband and I another wonderful day with at the Winery just the two of us. We brought our own bottle of Wilson Creek Almond Champagne and enjoyed it in the picnic area. My husband made reservations for the brunch at the restaurant. We enjoyed a delicious buffet with sushi, ham, and roast. They also, had breakfast items like waffles, omelets make on the spot, and delicious bacon and sausage. We then enjoyed all sorts of delectable desserts from cake pops, cookies, to mini little cakes (which were my favorite), and a chocolate fountain which you could dip fruit, and rice crispy treats into, (that was my husband’s favorite.)
We still had more wine tasting tickets so we tried some more of the Sparkling wines like the Orange Mimosa and the Sangria.
You can walk through the grounds of the winery and into the vines. We had a fun time taking photos (I mean I had a fun time taking photos my husband tolerated it, lol.)
The Wilson Creek Winery is such a beautiful place to spend time. If you just want to bring your Wilson’s champagne from Costco and enjoy a picnic at no cost or spend a bit and enjoy wine tasting and lunch, the Winery is truly spectacular.
