Basically this means that at the California State Fair Temecula's South Coast Winery won the best winery of the year award. This award almost always goes to wineries in Napa or Sonoma so it is unprecedented that a winery from Southern California would wine this award. I think this is a very good sign that our local wine industry is maturing and that it is now attracting high quality talent. Will San Diego/Temecula ever be Napa? No, probably not but it does mean that more and more we going to get to enjoy some very high quality local wines.
