Annual Branch and YMF Temecula Wine Trip

By Amanda Heise

The annual ASCE OC YMF Wine Tasting Trip happened on November 14 in Temecula. The event sold out a couple weeks prior with a total of 30 RSPVs. The shuttle picked up attendees at both the Tustin and Corona locations before heading down to Temecula. The first two wineries, Frangipani Estate Winery and Cougar Vineyard & Winery were new stops this year where everyone was able to start their tastings and mingle while enjoying the excellent views. Lunch was held at Maurice Car'rie Vineyard & Winery where everyone took a break from their tastings and munched a variety of snacks and the winery’s famous baked brie bread supplied by OC YMF. The final tastings were done at Falkner Winery where most of the attendees tried the seasonal mulled hot wine. Overall, everyone enjoyed a day of good wine and great networking! The OC YMF wine trip is an annual event held every November. If you are interested in attending next year, be sure to sign up for out mailing list and check our website in October since the event is likely to keep selling out!
