Porter’s Journey

Hi there! Please let me introduce myself! I’m Porter the Pig and I’m so happy to be the newest member of the Temecula Creek Inn family! I moved from my old home in the country and am starting to find my way around. I’m new in town, but it’s not like I fell off just any ol’ turnip truck — it was a Temecula olive truck!

You’ll be seeing me around the resort, letting you know what’s new at the golf course, what’s happening out at Stone House and more, but I’m especially excited to share what’s new at Cork | Fire Kitchen (the kitchen is where all the magic happens, right?) Because if there’s one thing I love, it’s food! I am a pig, you know.

I’ll also be heading out around the Temecula Valley to introduce you to local purveyors — wineries, farms, ranches, etc. — who make this region so diverse, and our menus so delicious. Check out our newest offering, Bev & Bites, to see how they’re inspiring our chef these days.

Spring 2014

Out & About at Wilson Creek Winery
Planning a day in wine country? Wilson Creek Winery is a must see. First off, it’s a family business (Rosie Wilson herself planted the flowers!) and you can feel that in the energy and personal touch when you visit – it’s very warm and welcoming, even to pigs like me! Wilson Creek is famous for its almond champagne, and I can’t imagine a wine that’s more fun to drink! Their new winemaker, Kestutis “Gus” Vizgirda, has won plenty of awards, including gold medals for Best Viognier and Best Sauvignon Blanc at the California State Competition.

Summer 2014

I’ve got to say that the Grapeline Shuttle has been just what I needed as I’ve been out exploring the best of wine country. It really is the best way to explore: Cool, comfy and in the company of fellow wine buffs looking to have a great time!

I know, I’m a pig and my transportation options are rather limited, but I’d take the Grapeline even if my rollerskates weren’t in the shop for repairs.

Grapeline offers all sorts of deals, but take it from me and book a Wine Country Getaway at Temecula Creek Inn – not only do you get the great Grapeline service, you also get a sweet place to stay after a day of indulgence!

Guess that’s all for now! Check back soon for more updates from me!
