Rockin' and Rollin' Winos - Day Trip to Temecula

  • This location is shown only to members

Hey Winos!

Announcing our first trip to Wine Country in 2012! Join us for guaranteed good times and new friends with a bus load of winos!! We've got everything covered for a ridiculously fun day with the friendliest winos in town, including an on-board raffle for some winolicous prizes and an extra special hook-up for the first 20 winos who secure their spots.

THE PLAN: We'll be visiting two wineries, both with spectacular views. Pack a lunch to be enjoyed at either location! Our first stop is Frangipani Winery for a private tasting of 6 wines, held smack in the middle of the vines and bocce ball court. Our group will receive 10% discounts on bottle purchases and souvenir logo glasses can be purchased for $3 each. Our next stop is Oak Mountain Winery, where we have reserved seating on the covered Pavillion to enjoy beautiful panoramic views while listening to live Jazz, Rock, R&B and Soul by Dayton Borders.

We've arranged for an on-your-own format (extremely rare for group visits) so you can choose between $5 wine margaritas or 6 wine tastings with complimentary avocado oil tastings ($12 regular/$15 premium). The logo glass is yours to keep for $3.

OUR RIDE: Deluxe motorcoach that seats up to 56 winos and winettes, has a bathroom (YAY, no pit stops!), sound system and reclining seats (these will come in handy for some of you on the ride home!). There's plenty of storage space underneath the bus as well as overhead compartments for your personal items. Drinking IS allowed on the bus so please come prepared with your own beverage of choice. We will supply plastic cups, a few corkscrews, a large cooler with ice and bottled waters.

ROLLING RAFFLE: Each person will receive a raffle ticket on the bus and as soon as we leave the second pick-up location, you'll have a chance to win some winolicious prizes, including: $25 gift card to One Hope Wine, $25 gift card to Firehouse American Eatery, CalNaturale organic wine, $10 movie gift card from Regal Entertainment Group, Toasted Head corkscrews, and a few more goodies!

WHAT'S INCLUDED: Payment includes round-trip transportation, tax and driver gratuity, private tasting fees at Frangipani, reserved seating at Oak Mountain winery, raffle prizes and bottled waters. The first 20 winos who secure their spots on the bus will receive a limited edition 20 oz. etched Winos R Us wine glass.

PAYMENT: PAYMENT MUST BE MADE TO SECURE YOUR SPOT ON THE BUS!!! Seats will be given out on a first-come, first-served basis. If you prefer to not pay via PayPal, you can pay cash at one of the events. The $45 fee will be increased to $50 after midnight on Saturday, July 28th. Please refer to the refund policy posted at the top of the page.

PICK-UP/DROP OFF LOCATIONS: There are 2 pick-up/drop-off locations with free parking. Please note the pick up time and aim to arrive EARLY. We are on a schedule with the wineries and the on-time winos will not be happy with the stragglers! After you RSVP, you will be asked to provide your pick-up/drop-off location...please provide a response so we know exactly how many to expect at each location. In case of emergency only, we will send out contact numbers a few days prior.

1) Old Town Transit Center - pick up at 12:30pm. Address: 4009 Taylor Street, San Diego 92110 (entrance on Pacific Hwy). We'll meet on the sidewalk under the freeway. Return at 6:30pm.
2) Del Mar Park and Ride Lot - pick up at 12:50pm. Address: 12791 Sorrento Valley Road, Del Mar 92121. Note: This location can be difficult to find so please allow extra time if you have not been there before! Directions: Take I-5 to Carmel Valley Road Exit. Travel west on Carmel Valley Road. Turn left immediately onto Sorrento Valley Road. Lot is on the left side. Return at ~6:10pm.

Your guests are more than welcome to join us! If you haven't been on a bus trip with the winos, you're in for a treat! Check out the pics from our previous trip to get an idea of what's ahead…good times guaranteed!
