Are you planning a trip to Temecula's wineries? If so, you may be wondering if you can bring your own food. The answer is yes, but there are some restrictions. Some of the wineries in Temecula have picnic areas where guests are encouraged to bring their own food. However, it's important to be respectful of wineries that have restaurants on site.
These establishments will not allow food from outside to enter the property. To avoid any issues, it's best to contact the winery you plan to visit in advance and inquire about the availability of the picnic area. It's also important to note that you cannot bring food to the wine tasting areas or the VIP area. You may notice some people trying to bring food, but it's generally frowned upon and they'll be asked to keep it.
Wineries sell the food they want you to buy. However, in the outdoor picnic areas, feel free to bring your own.
