New on the De Portola Wine Trail
The Fazeli family is proud of its cultural heritage, which it continues to celebrate by creating wines that capture the essence of its ancient traditions. Named after the fabled city of Shiraz, its benchmark grape pays homage to ancient Persia. Long ago this beautiful city was famous for its wine, and some even say that this is
where the Shiraz grape originated.

The Temecula Valley Balloon and Wine Festival,
then known as the Rancho California Balloon and Wine Festival, was started in 1983 by Walt Darren, a commercial airline pilot and avid balloonist and by Evelyn Harker a veteran event organizer and fund raiser. The seed money was provided by Kaiser Development Company and sponsors came from the local community giving what they could with many contributions consisting of in-kind services and products.
At this time, there were only six wineries in the region.
There are over 30 wineries in the region now.
The first Balloon and Wine Festival was launched in the Spring of 1984 and was a monumental success for a town of only 9,000 residents. More than 4,000 people were in attendance that year as 35 balloons were launched from the Rancho California Plaza area off Ynez Road (now Tower Plaza).
As the Festival grew, music was added and the event was moved to the Sports Park.
In 1986 as the event continued to grow, it was moved to Cherry Avenue and the first ever poster contest was held. During 1987-1988, the Festival was moved back to the Sports Park and in 1989, it was moved to its current location at Lake Skinner. In 1988, the Festival featured live entertainment with the Coasters and Little Anthony and the Imperials. In 1991 the Beach Boys entertained.
