There’s nothing ordinary about Temecula Creek Inn, but the holidays really showcase the resort’s hospitality, making it the the ideal place to celebrate “Christmas at the Inn”.
Located just 90 minutes from Los Angeles and Orange County and a mere 45 minutes from San Diego, Temecula is nestled in rolling hills where the ocean breezes kiss the wine grapes each afternoon, helping to produce award-winning gold medal wines that you can sample and buy at over a dozen wineries.
But Temecula isn’t just about wine, or Pechanga casino, or even golf getaways at the Temecula Creek Inn. You can enjoy those pleasures any time of year. In the winter when the days are warm and nights frosty, Winterfest annual holiday event hosted by the city provides the perfect family attraction to tempt you from your routine and bring meaning to your family holiday celebrating.
A seasonal ice skating rink in front the beautiful, new City Hall, streets filled with merry music, and Christmas Carol greetings offer activities and attractions for all ages. The annual Christmas Carol play is one of the many evening events to enjoy after you dine at the Temet Grill at the Inn.
Popular getaway packages have lured fun-seekers to the Temecula Creek Inn, but there’s something for everyone at the resort filled with Tender Loving Care.
“We’ve made our dining menu something really special–and affordable–for those seeking to experience world class accommodations and cuisine,” said Executive Chef Sal (Salvatore) Giuliano, who oversees not one, but three chefs in the resort’s kitchen! Blessed with a passion for greatness Italians are known for, Giuliano is modest about the fact that chefs seek him out and want to work with a master (word gets around in food circles.)
“I help them bring out their hidden talents, while I am also constantly discovering top notch sources for our produce, meats, cheeses, wines, and everything we serve ,” says the affable executive chef who has brought recognition to Temecula Creek Inn and the beautiful Temet Grill, overlooking a lush scene of waterfalls, expansive greens, and distant mountains. Giuliano focuses on buying ingredients from local farmers because of California’s bounty of great flavors, but he also includes items on the menu from the best sources, wherever they may be.
New on the menu is a three course tapas service that begins with a fresh, bright holiday cerviche complemented by festive green colored corn chips and custom crafted earthen-colored plates that are pieces of art unto themselves. Other fun, new items are Lamp Pops with delicate New Zealand grass-fed lamb, a favorite around the world. Items that never disappear from the menu or go out of style are salmon entrees and tender beef selections that are unforgettable in quality and flavor. The wine selections span the globe, while still focusing on the local, award-winning vintners who are showcased in monthly wine pairing dinner events. There’s also a full cocktail bar, off course!
The Temet Grill exemplifies what Temecula Creek Inn lives by. Friendly hospitality, quality accommodations, a resort setting, and something that people often notice around Christmas–tender loving care. It’s a can’t fail recipe for a memorable and meaningful holiday in Southern California.
